Wow! That sounds great! I'd love the recipe for that. We have no problems keeping low carb but others often just don't get it... but it's not hard to do things with veggies, etc. But it sounds like you've done some really creative things!

Sides included tater salad made with yukon golds, spicy pickled asparagus spears, handmade kraut, fresh peach cobbler and some yummy lemon bars.

I guess even when it's "just hot dogs" the NW forums crowd does it up! And why not - after all, we need extra energy to tote all the heavy bottles of merlot needed to wash all that food down!
You two do MY kind of camping!

No boondocking or Wal Mart parking lots for me.

Have you ever looked at the 1970's Airstream Story sales brochure that shows the husband waiting at the crystal candlelit table with china and linen as his wife pulls the 23lb turkey from the oven?

If time wasn't an issue when camping, I would certainly experiment with the micro/convection oven and try some things like bread or Key Lime Pie or similar and would go fancy on the entre', but I am always the one in charge of entertaining the kids and all of the outside the Airstream duties.

That's sure the case with pot lucking. It's one of the reasons the unit is moving toward prepared meals for some rallys. There is no reason these meals cann't be very healthy and excellent. Me, I'm a high protein guy.

Yay high protein!

On a high-carb, low-protein note, we take pies that we make and freeze ourselves, ready to bake, and bake them. Have also made fresh pies in the trailer.

We keep all pie making items in our trailer! Apple peeler, flour, oil, salt, 3 or 4 pie pans..... It's fall now so folks will be getting fresh apple and pumpkin pie at our gatherings (we pick the pumpkin, cut in half and bake until the insides are ready to be pureed into pie filling - all using our Airstream oven).

I've baked a couple of entrees in our oven, one for a forum rally, and Marie has also used the oven for baking. Macaroni and cheese casserole seems to be popular for pot luck. Has anybody besides me made a cheesecake in their Airstream for a potluck?

Oh man, this thread is making me hungry!! I miss the oven in our first Airstream it was a vintage so it had a real oven it was big too!! Baked some tasty cornbread, sweet potato casserole, biscuits, pizzas (real homemade ones), now its just a convection micro thing in our new trailer--longsuffering three beat sigh. Well guess its ok to reheat leftovers, but I broke down and bought a Coleman propane oven with a little window so I can really bake.

Yeah I hear ya Minnie's mate, I tell hubby to take lil boy fishing/walking so I can cook/bake/clean up in peace when we are campin... They seem to be ok with it.

Course Shari you know that coney dogs are a gourmet treat in D-Town!!

"Dear God: thank you for these people, these gifts, this food," something like that. Let's all be thankful together but also for our differences.


Tom
I don't have a problem with public prayer as long as it isn't for pious purposes. As a Christian I am sensitive that not everyone is also a Christian and agree that we shouldn't assume they are nor should we attempt to impose our religion on others.

We live in a diverse culture and I believe that we should be sensitive to others, however, America is a predominately Judeo-Christian society and I don't think the vast majority of Americans are offended by a generic prayer such as the eloquently simple one you offered above. It is not denominational, nor should it be offensive to Jews or Muslum. Jews and Christians worship the same God and Muslims claim that Alah is the same as Jahovah. This last one I question based on historical evidence to the contrary, but that is a discussion best not included in this forum.

So I think the blessing of fellowship and food should not be feared to offensive, but should be included in the potluck dinner function. Perhaps others would disagree and I would welcome opinions on this as I may be in the minority and not realize it.

Please let me know how most of you feel. If I should start a poll or seperate thread I can or if it isn't that big of a deal, I can let the subject die here.
