while this is not my idea of "haute cuisine", i find this acceptable, and "kid" friendly.....substitute italian sausage, and a jar of spaghetti sauce. rice and spaghetti, make this an economical dish. dont forget the merlot.....

wine glasses from Corning

I just got the latest issue of Airstream Life with the article on the Corning Glass Museum in New York and it reminded me to share with you all the wine glasses we finally settled on. They're sturdy, double as coffee cups, and we just wrap them up in kitchen towels when we travel. We also use the french jelly jars at home (in all sizes, and with lids) -- they're great!

I also purchased new wine glasses for our Airstream. Could not be any tackier (I love them).

Balgrn, I got two for you too. Since you pointed them out to me it seemed like the right thing to do.

Shakin NOT stirred

Glasses, why the glass rack. Yours didnít come with one!

I like tinies, so I made up this one. Actually finding the brushed Stainless Steel Martini glasses motivated this project!

I too picked up my share of beverage glass, just no fun



As for the fridge fan. I took it a step further by purchasing a small computer cooling fan (actually salvaged it) These fans are all 12V, quite, move a lot of air, dependable (unlike the junk they sell as fridge fans) and very inexpensive (under 7 bucks)

I wired mine into the interior fridge light and added an on/off switch. The switch, I mounted on the light housing and placed the fan on the bottom blowing upwards.

that particular piece of equipment is a pressure canner. it is employed for the canning of meat and other low acid foods not suited for conventional hot water bath canning. as a brief aside, certain peoples weak constitutions have resulted in development of varietes of low acid tomatoes which make them questionable for hot water bath canning. it is wise to check with the agricultural extention agent at your local university. happy kooking.......

attention target wino's

hi folks

we have covered how nice luminarc glass ware is...sort of bistro durable yet still nice glass.....and many of us use the picardie tumblers for everything.

i was in target yesterday and they have wine/spirt glasses in boxed volumes...with a few name brands.....

what caught my eye and wallet.......
was luminarc wine glasses.......12/box.........$11.99.......

man that's a deal. and since they are in divided cardboard boxes...they are ready for travel...the box is pretty good.

pix below......

so i picked up a 12 box or 10.5oz multipurpose goblets...
and a 12 box or champagne flutes........

each is 11.99 a box.......

checked their web site and this isn't listed but the stores sure have 'em.

this is luminarc made in usa, not the usual french ones.....but they are very nice.....i'm testing them now..

cheers

Why pressure cookers RULE

cooking time can be 3 to 5 times shorter than 'roasting' oven times or for boiled times....also can be used to steam veggies or meats....so i think it is ideal for boondocking and conserving lp gas. shorter cook times, moisture is retained and more bang for the btu.

basically the pot is heated just till the pressure cap wiggles, then turned down to keep the wiggle...so there is no pressures 'setting'....the old models had a cap that adjusted pressures but they no longer come with that cap.

borrow one or find a granny who is willing part.....or visit a retro shop or garage sale....

hey norbert.............my jelly glass collection is way to delicate and valuable for trailer use!!

cheers

This is what my pressure cooker--a vintage Presto Meatmaster--looks like:


Trust me--with one of these, you can make the most mouth-watering stews, roasts, and veggies in a fraction of the time, about 30% of the LP, and at any altitude! I wouldn't part with mine unless I could get another. They are always for sale for next to nothing on eBay, and the vintage ones like this model (the picture is from one currently for sale for $10) are ALUMINUM. Many great cookbooks are available, too. Get one!

Vince,
As long as you aren't hung up on vintage you can buy very serviceable pressure cookers at thrift shops and estate sales. The last one I bought was stainless 6 quart mirro new in the box for $8 I have several. I have learned to only buy a known name brand...for parts availability. I have a sweet little 1 litre unit that came from england, but parts are hard to get for it.
