Hey, that's a way to heat the trailer with the oven without people saying you are crazy! I like it!

Yummm

We are spending Christmas in the AS. I'm going to cook a standing rib roast in the oven. Yumm. I can imagine the aroma wafting through the AS already. When it's done, I'll bake some fresh biscuits to a golden brown to go with it. I feel like Pavlov's dog. The microwave just doesn't cut it.

Steve and Jan: If we didn't already have a bunch of family scheduled to show up here on Christmas, we'd be drooling outside your door at Lake San Antonio. You paint a very tasty picture. Enjoy!

Make some cardboard cutouts of the two of you, leave at home and come join us! You won't have to drool outside, you can come in and drool!

Each time we eat PIZZAs; Always a great moment , for the odor and the ramp fire view. Great feeling to be independant in the trailer when you can cook with good tools.

What we need is some data....

Just when I thought there was no clear answer to the question...
There is science. (be patience, it is a lot of data)

http://www.dfrc.wisc.edu/NIRS2003pdf...rying.ver2.pdf

Is haylage as good as cornbread?

I feel a poem coming on... or is it a magrine?

Standby.

Poem: Microwaved for 10 min. Half-baked for 30.

There has come a day
and you are not sure of the way
What ever did folks do
when there was only one way?

There has come a day
when some might say
you don’t need one of those
you need one of these.
How lucky folks were
when there was only one way.

There will come a day
when everyone will pay
for someone to tell or show them the way.
Folks were so lucky
when there was much less to do and say.

There will come a day
when we will all want to play
Pray, folks won’t divide up in Littles and Bigs.
We could have the best of both worlds
and find life is good in our shiny rigs.

There will come a day
when we stand back and say,
all that time spent wondering yeah or nay
we should have been searching for
more room to play.

There will come a day
when we drop down and say,
we can have Both and use them at will
To nuke or broil, to reheat or bake
folks will all smile and and join hands at a rally

because the food will be good
and the friendships will last.

em.

I'll add a little to robertsunrus on the stove top coffee pot .We use vintage appliances when we use the airstream ,GE chrome toaster and a waffle iron
from the rexall drug store back in the 60s I think .remember when the drug stores had their own line of products and stuff ,they had something for everyone it seemed .We use a werever stove top perculator coffee pot
and I will say it makes a great cup of coffee ,really tastes good .Agree
also with sugarfoot on the oven ,very true to temperature ,seems to do better than the house oven .

Biscuits...gotta have biscuits

or sometimes crescent rolls...brown and serve rolls too! But biscuits in the morning are critcal too camping. I'm in charge of breakfast in our camping group (usually 8-10)..most mornings its Biscuits, Eggs, Pancakes, Bacon and Grits. it seems everything but the grits go a biscuit if your under the age of 12..that way you can run, jump, ride a bike and eat.


Oh yeah...someone added a microwave under counter in my 53 Spartan...Tam says "its gotta go"

Turducken is Delicious in an Airstream!

We have cooked Turducken on two occasions and also baked pies and cakes. We would not be without the oven. Granted, storage is a premium but an oven is a necessity for us.

Check out Cajun Food - Turducken - Crawfish - King Cakes - CajunGrocer.com for Turducken. Including delivery, the price is about what you would pay for good quality lunch meat. Everything except the wing and drumstick bones are edible.

Looking forward to some fluffy, fresh-baked biscuits later this week.

Turducken

I never heard of that but it sounds delicious. I'll have to get me some. I can just smell the aroma wafting around the Airstream now...

Yes

I did in my prior Airstreams. It's hard to get a good frozen pizza that's been microwaved.

Back Yard Camping

Boy are we (and the neighbors) glad there's an oven in the AS. The NW's big wind storm has left us withouth power for four days and it's likely to be 3-4 more until power is restored. The house has electricity from the generator we bought "for the trailer". We can run the gas furnace which is good since temperatures are dipping below freezing at night but since the range is 220V we've been cooking in the trailer. I can't remember frozen pizza ever tasting so good

This little inconvenience gives us a small appreciation of what the South goes through following huricanes. It's also a wake-up call as to how unprepared this region is for a big natural disaster like a major earthquake.

Oven Use

We have a 99 Excella and use the oven daily, from making toast in the morning to roasting in the evening. We always barbecue outside to keep the cooking orders out but would be lost without the oven.

I use my oven for biscuits and to warm up foods I prepare in advance such as King Ranch Casserole, Chicken enchiladas, etc. The cooktop gets most of the use but it sure is nice to have the oven when you need it. I don't have a microwave in the trailer yet so the oven is a necessity at times. I've even had other Airstreamers borrow the oven during rallys because theirs wasn't working.

The oven is used on every trip.
But how often? You ask.
More often than the microwave,
but less often than the toilet,
and about as often as the shower.

Martin (empresley) Did you just write that poem for us? We have a traveling minstrel of sorts, too cool. Great poem, liked the humour, we need to laugh at ourselves, breath of fresh air, and I like the unity ending. Clever. Oh you talented people here!

I posted before but I will again. We use the oven, nice to help out the furnace with some baking or heating up the ironstone dishes to keep our food warm longer in cool weather, don't always have electric. I made pizza in the frying pan in July during the heat wave. We no longer have a microwave but I would use it if there was one built in, but not instead of, no no.
