For me, pizza is most definitely best fresh. No different than bread being fresh, it just tastes better. One of the biggest problems with reheating the next day, is when it is done in a microwave, which makes any bread or bread (pizza) crust tough and chewy. Heated in an oven, or on a grill, would be better.

We've even reheated pizza in a frying pan (covered). But never, ever in a microwave!

Regarding the survey... I can't find anything that fits. We do cook and eat a lot differently when we're camping, but it's definitely not "because of road challenges." It's "vacation," so we have more time and choose to splurge a bit on quality fresh ingredients- more a step up than a step down. Call it "road opportunities," not "road challenges"!

I don't find an appropriate check box either, and I wonder what the point of a survey is? Will it change anything?

No more will a thermometer change the temperature.

Sometimes I check a thermometer to satisfy my curiosity; other times it's with a view to adjust my own behavior- cover my tomatoes or pack an extra sweater.

On this site surveys seem to be mostly about curiosity. One characteristic of a good survey is that many others are curious about the same thing.

When on the road we try to eat basically the same way we do at home. I have gluten sensitivity, so it's easier to cook than to go out. We eat a primarily vegetarian diet, with the occasional addition of chicken, beef or fish. I have to admit that sometimes we resort to convenience foods just because it's easier in the small space. Having an oven is one thing I would be reluctant to give up. We use ours pretty frequently. I thought I would miss having a microwave, but it turns out I don't. I've also learned that I really don't need to take a ton of groceries with us, except for things that are hard to find when traveling. There are grocery stores out there after all! Sometimes the pickings are slim, but you can usually find fresh fruits, vegetables and the basics.

The one time we throw our good eating habits out the window is when we go to weekend gatherings where the emphasis is on potlucks, beer swaps, wine tastings, hot dog roasts, cocktail hour gatherings with chips and dips, etc. After all, ya gotta have some fun once in awhile!

[QUOTE=stude;562758]: placed it in the wrong location when they installed it way up there in a spot when you pull out the hot item and it catches on something causing it to tip...

Actually, there is often a problem with that as there are limited places for the microwave and ours has been a little high also. One item we bought recently is microwave plates. They can be removed more easily than many containers but we still have to be careful. Of course, that does not help for cooking many items but with some, we can manage with the plates. A stool could be used and hand to another maybe. I am sure that many have your complaint. See George's post #31 as that might be possible for some people.

Ain't that the Truth! Thank goodness I don't camp with you folks on a daily basis... my arteries couldn't take it Hot dogs and bacon are camping food. Oooey-gooey, filled with cheese something-or-others are fun foods and every time I partake I enjoy! But really, general camping isn't always about the food... it's about the memories!

Whether or not to have a microwave also has to do with your camping style. We've only had hook-ups twice in the past five years with our FGRV so things like microwaves are low on the list
On the other hand I like to cook and we both like to eat
We find in most weather we use our old camp stove on the table outside
I have a lot of healthy one pot meals that we enjoy. We also make good use of pie irons and often take along a BBQ grill
With some small modifications we eat about the same wherever we are

And why?
Steaks are sitting on a cutting board which is sitting on the lid.
If you want to investigate unsanitary, look into your kitchen, especially the sink and counters. Do bacteria counts from your dishcloth.
It's probably the most unsanitary room in the house.

re- Jack-in-the-Box


Being from all the way up in Canada, you might not be familiar with the fast food chain. It's mostly a California thing, but spreading. Fast food burgers.
