Thanks for that recipe again, Maggie. For this stove top bread, do you ever use the Dutch Oven dome you posted in the Cast Iron thread?

I have a one burner butane stove I’ve only used once since Doug died, but which would be perfect for this and outdoor use.

Put the dome over your Dutch Oven, skillet, griddle, etc., and you have a convection Oven.

I haven’t yet for the bread, Peter, but did make a single biscuit using the dome a couple of weeks ago, on one of the burners in the Interstate, and it came out fine.

I picked up a packet of Hungry Jack, add water, buttermilk biscuit mix, and you can make an excellent breakfast scone for one with this.

Sometimes you just want a baked good with butter and jam for breakfast...everything doesn’t need to be good for you, and I couldn’t bring myself to buy a package of refrigerated biscuits.

Even the small packages would also make more than I could or would want to eat.

The mix is perfect...dump some in a bowl, add a bit of water, stir and you have biscuit dough for one,

They do get more brown when cooking them like a griddle scone, I have found.

I intend to experiment more with the dome as I settle into my longer term beach stays over the next month or so.

I suspect using the dome for a pan bread will give a more rounded, loaf type appearance. I’ll take a picture and report back.


After much angst over the single burner butane stove referenced, that I had from the before days, I left it and my substantial supply of fuel cans for it...all from the before time...at a large campground I visited early in this trip, with a “free to a good home” sign on it.

I was more than a little afraid of it, kept telling myself I “should” use it, then decided I do not have to do all things, and gave it all away...rather than continuing to carry something around, and it’s fuel, that I am uncomfortable using.


As I approach my 70th birthday , I am finding my mindset on some things changing a bit, and friends of the same age report a similar experience.

I think this also is part of the later stage grieving process, me nearly 5 years into that.

With a long time partner, life is experienced differently. When that partner is gone, eventually we reshape many perspectives and start to make choices about the experiences we want to subject ourselves to.

To a very great extent, we can choose who and what we want to experience, and do not need to try not to die on all hills.

At least, that is my experience.


We had rain in the night, and are going to have a cool down today with lows overnight in the 30’s, so will hunker down with the microfleece today, do a bit of cleaning and perhaps a load of laundry before moving on tomorrow.

The woman in the RPod is coming down for tea after awhile...

Yup, food is basically a BDS! [butter delivery system] Just yesterday I halved a fresh biscuit and fried it in a cast iron pan with plenty of butter, until brown and crisp on all sides. Plus the heresy of PB&J.



Yum.

Your further comments are well said. Like the old Sam Cooke tune . . . Change Is Gonna Come. [see OTRA II music thread]

I doubt it, as she is just new to this and on her first trip.

I am really impressed with the layout and comfort of her rig, tho would still never want to tow anything I would love to have that dinette.

We had a “town day” yesterday, with stops at Walgreens, PETCO and two different WalMarts, stocking up on supplies for myself and Miss Lily.

Then tucked under a massive tree at a WalMart for the night, before a county park a bit farther north for the weekend.

Lily looooves to go into PETCO , prancing and bouncing around, and is so good at the aisle with nose-level bins of treats...she sniffs at them and nudges them with her nose, but doesn’t try to take anything out.

Such a good girl.

She always leaves with something, but her Mama is the only one allowed to pick them up, and she knows that.


Interestingly, when I pulled under this tree, obviously many vehicles before mine had been here, ground being packed and well worn, there was a blue crate overturned near where I parked.

I went to pick it up, thinking it was basically trash, and under it was sitting a perfect bakery box of four turnovers of some sort.

Past their prime goods set out for someone who might be hungry?

I moved them both slightly away from my rig and around to the side of the tree, feeling certain they had been left intentionally, and didn’t want their proximity to me to be a deterrent for anyone retrieving them, but left the crate over the box as I found it.

I have never seen this before, or at least not noticed.

I remember the hospital at home feeding the hobos, as they were called back then, out the kitchen door at meal times. Men who “rode the rails” and knew where in any town they might get a meal.


As I cross into Georgia, I am very close to the campground where Doug was stricken, and thought about spending a night there...but I just can’t.

I was in touch early on with the good people there, who assisted with CPR, supported me, helped me, transported me and cared for Lily until my son could get there to take her home.

They have been thanked, I don’t have to have my feet back there, so I just won’t do it to myself. Period.

Then, the hospital in Brunswick where he was taken, we gathered, and he died.

Every time we come through here, a little re-living.

Life.

Maggie

We took a winding, scenic drive up to and through Savannah yesterday, and on to Tybee Island, where I have a beautiful, large campsite complete with shade, a clean bathhouse, good WiFi and cable tv.

It feels like a 5-star hotel, and we are in a town on the beach.

I have kept up with daily events via my news pages, but national news morning and evening are a ritual at home that I will enjoy here for the duration of our stay.

I have read a lot of books this trip.


There are several Airstreams here and a good half dozen Class B’s, each a different brand from what I can see,and none of them are Interstates.

But for tent sites, the campground looks to be completely filled for this 3-day weekend...lots of kids, bikes, dogs, activity of various sorts well into the night, somewhat assaulting my senses, but it’s a campground, being loved and enjoyed, as it was meant to be.

One of the things I first noticed and appreciated about this place two years ago is that the sites are completely covered with packed white gravel, making a bright, relatively clean surface entirely underfoot instead of the grayish mixture of sand and dirt that would otherwise be present in this area of the country. I like.


We were in a county campground Friday & Saturday night that was one of the most closely spaced experiences I have ever had.

Every available inch was being used, campers in my area parked head to toe, on dirt/sand, alternately facing the fence behind and the entrance into the campground...allowing one water and electric post to serve every two sites.

I could have stood in the middle on either side of my rig, and almost touched both mine and the one next to it.

I’ve never seen anything quite like it.

Pickup trucks, vehicles, and boat trailers filled every available space, and the joint was jumping with families, kids of all ages, dogs, etc....an obviously well used and enjoyed family campground, with the beautiful river a primary attraction.

Fellow patrons and campground staff were friendly, I had electricity after about 10 days without, laundry, a nice bathhouse, and it was inexpensive.

All campgrounds are not created equal, I reminded myself. All part of the travel experience.

Despite my best efforts, between me and the dog my inside rugs were filthy from the weekend, so we stopped at a laundromat on our way here to wash everything that had been underfoot.

Much better. I like clean.


As many times as we have been through the Florida panhandle and southeast area, I don’t recall ever seeing before this trip the bald eagles I have seen this winter.

They are unmistakable, but brown, and I have seen them eating carrion in the roads.

Our eagles at home are black, they eat primarily fish they catch very impressively, and we generally only see them along the rivers.


We are going to enjoy a different camping experience here for awhile, cook some and play with the Dutch Oven Dome. I’m also going to make myself pull out my laptop and documents I brought with for upcoming tax preparation, and start pulling that together in a coherent fashion for my preparer.

It’s going to be tedious, but I will be interested to see what my volunteer expenses and modest medical bills in 2018 do to my taxes.

Something positive for me, I hope.


HistoriCorps is sending out projects for signup, so far too early in the year to be doable for me, as spring and early summer is a time when I need to be at home.

We’ll see what adventures may await the summer.

Maggie

Tybee was our favorite cg. Glad you like it! There is a pizza place real close that is dog friendly. Old record albums on the ceiling, lots of outside seating. Cannot remember thename but it is on the main road toward savannah. Little place. Naybe you can take one of the golfcart trolleys.

Keep going to earlier pages until that post appears. [using the blue ">" symbol above and to the right] That post is dated 3/23/18 FYI.

Are you on the desktop version of this site, or the App?

If you have your settings such that the most recent unread post comes up first, #5085 is right now at page #14, going backwards in time, or you can count that forward from the first page...does that make any sense?


Tybee is a much larger and more developed town than Edisto, tho still seems unspoiled compared to Hilton Head, etc., which are just not my cup of tea.

With that come more restaurants and shops, which we will largely neglect but for the nice coffee place that is an easy walk from here.

When we were here the first time, two years ago, we had just been by Doug’s memorial bench at the hospital in Brunswick.

I remember being very teary and full of emotion, but did meet the lovely two women here from my grandparents town on Long Island, who invited me to dinner at their house, introduced me to Honey Jack & Ginger, and with whom I have stayed in touch.

We haven’t been in the same place at the same time since then, but it will hopefully happen one of these days.

This stay should be emotionally unclouded...a different and more enjoyable experience.

Maggie

Breakfast scone, using add-water buttermilk biscuit mix and this little item on my propane burner inside...

https://m.dickssportinggoods.com/p/c...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

I flipped it over briefly, to make sure the topside was done.

A fluffier, more risen end result than just cooking in the pan on both sides.

It is cooling a bit on a rack, then I’m going to enjoy it.


On edit: this is baked perfectly through, very light and fluffy and delicious!

What town on Long Island are you referring to? I grew up there.
