Well, Ed is driving down the interstate at 70 mph and I am sitting here trying to figure out what’s for dinner. Yeah I deal with this on the road just like I do at home.
So off to the bedroom/living room/kitchen I go…And I dig thru the fridge… What there is of it… And the freezer….
And come out with turkey cutlets and green beans! Wooohoo!!
So out comes my faithful little Pyrex dish that just so happens to be the perfect size… I was so excited when Ed found this… And in go the cutlets. But wait… That looks really bland… So cooking genius that I am, I dump some of this yummyness into the dish…And now we have… So into the oven it goes at 450 for 15 minutes… Throw in the green beans into the microwave and when both of the dingers go off dinner is ready!! Now that dinner is over and the dishes are thrown out, let me show you around my kitchen…
You have met the fridg…
Let me show you what has been added to my kitchen in the last 2 months.My oven!!! I am in love! I can cook anything in this puppy!! Toasted tuna sandwiches, fish, chicken, steak, and turkey!! I can’t wait to try roasting cauliflower! I call it my oven because toaster oven sounds so dorm roomish and I try to make this truck as much of a home as I can. And did I mention the Keurig coffee maker Ed bought me last week when we were in Cedar City UT? OMG!!!!!! It is perfect for the truck!! I can have any flavor I can lay my hands on from Kahlúa and hazelnut to teas and hot coco too!!! Woohoo!! Love love love!!!! Now Ed is talking about getting one of the big ones that you attach right to the water line to have at home!! I think the best part of having my kitchen setup with a coffee pot is that I don’t have to stop at truck stops for anything but showers now!! (that is the only thing that I haven’t found a way to squeeze into this truck!). Give me a rest area and a Wal-Mart for groceries every now and then and I am golden!! When we first started out my dad, knowing how I feel about my coffee, got us a 12volt coffee maker that I loved but it died long ago. I didn’t realize how much I missed it!
Well thats all there is to it! I cook in an 8 foot square box with a toaster oven and a microwave. Now my question for you… What would you cook in a toaster oven and microwave? Keeping in mind that I only have one glass dish, one wire rack and a roll of tinfoil for pots and pans and a dorm size fridg. I know all of you are very creative people do I can’t wait to hear what you come up with!!
