Anybody tried this set or pressure frying?

I like the idea of pressure frying for taters and chicken and whatnot, but these are some serrious change.

I use the top portion of old socks, the part that has ribbing and keeps your ankles warm... (freshly laundered, of course ) they slip over the cups and glasses nicely and keep them from breaking but the sock tops don't take as much room as towels. We use this technique on canned goods as well, protects the walls. This is a transfer from sailing... broken glass on a sailboat is really trouble, because it never breaks until you are in rough seas and you don't want to try to pick up broken glass then! In 10 years with our sailboat we never had a broken anything, and traveling with a trailer will not have the lurching, rolling, bouncing as 12 foot seas and 35 knot winds.

I Do The Sock Thing My Self For Wine Glasses. I Try To Miniumize The Amout Of Stuff I Take. Buy Fresh On The Road. Don't Try To Fore See Every Thing You Might Need In Advance. There Are Walmarts At The Other End. Travel Light - Do A Lot Of Throw Way Stuff. Next To Good Regional Wines, Local Stuff Is Fun To Try. Organize To Whats In Season For Where Your Staying. Buy A Kite Every So Often And See Where The Wind Is Blowing. And Remember - The Freezer Is For Ice Cubes. By The Way, Can I Borrow A Cup Of Sugar?

No, No - Real Plates And Flatwear, Table Cloth - These Are Important. I'm Talking Paper Towels - Coffee Filters - Floor Cleaners - Plastic Bags - You Can Put Anything In A Ziplock That You Can Put In A Container - That Sort Of Thing. Example: Sandwich, Put It On A Paper Towel. Apple Core, Toss It - It's Good For The Soil.

Smile New types of folding plates, cups, etc.

We were just listening to The Splendid Table and there was a really neat story about a Brit who designed folding plates, cups, etc. for camping. The website is here and REI even sells it among other places. It looks kind of interesting. The designer said he made it with origami in mind. It comes in some cute colors. Just thought I'd share, not sure if I'll get it but then again it all folds flat--might be fun for tailgating....

and a little humor.

also this thead/poll may interest some

http://www.airforums.com/forum...-20471-3.html?

this summer i added a hand crank coffee grinder and french press for boondocking without giving up the freshest brew.

cheers

We love our nesting pots and pans set, which stores in the oven in a cast iron skillet sitting on an "airbake" cookie sheet, which helps prevent burning the bottom of food from the heat of the gas oven burner. We keep a pizza stone on the very bottom of the oven, which also helps moderate the heat. We also have a silicone muffin tin that's flexible and fits in a lot of places.

We also have a knife safe mounted inside one of the cabinet doors, and 3 small cutlery trays in the top drawer. One holds the three handles of the nesting set (new sets only have two).

For more counterspace, we usually keep the Corian cover on the right sink, over a stainless dish drainer sitting on a sink mat. This allows us to save water by rinsing everything at once.

In the "appliance garage" under the microwave, we have a mini-crock pot, 2-slice bagel toaster, and hand mixer. Next to it is a 4-cup Mr. Coffee.

Heavy stuff (flour, sugar, canned goods, cat food, etc) is stored low. Light stuff (chips, pasta, breads, cereal) is stored high. It fits a lot better, especially in the overheads, if you take it out of the rectangular box and throw that away.

Glasses travel in clean socks. Every other bottle in the liquor cabinet comes out, a strip of bubble wrap stood up along the remaining bottles, then the bottles taken out are replaced.

We've also bought a Lexan hand-crank coffee grinder and JavaPress for the boat, but for the Airstream, I think we'll take along the little KitchenAid electric grinder.

coffee mills or grinders...

hi all

i've been carrying an old hand crank zassenhaus coffee grinder....

it's about 25 years old, at least....

still great for boondocking and 1-2 cups at a time.

at home i've got a krups blade grinder that is nearly 20 years old and still works fine too.

planning to purchase a small electric grinder for travel now...

anyone have a favorite?

cheers

The In-Laws gave us their fondue pot from their wedding in the 50's. It's aluminum and reeeeetro. The kids love it, small and lightweight. Perfect for happy hour, snack time or whatever, requires no electricity - packing it up for the next trip out.

We typically load up the fridge and leave. I've found countless times that rural areas are far more expensive and sometimes the meats and such are not really all that great.

Light stuff in the upper roof lockers and bowls, cooking gear under the sink.

Of course, not all Airstreams have the same amount of room, so each situation can be unique. Even going from the 19' to the 25'

I value my vacation time, so doing dishes (paper/plastic for me) and grocery shopping just cuts into camping time. All meals are planned so that nothing is missd on the load up. If we plan on having bacon, it's precooked at home and frozen in zip lock bags. Pasta sauce, chili, taco meat; all prepared as much ahead of time as possible to cut down on cook and clean time. Not that cooking isn't part of the experience - that's what the bbq is for. I just like to cut down the prep, cleanup and trash generation to the minimum.

Crock pot

Like RoadKingMoe, I carry a mini-crock pot. I picked it up on sale at Cabellas at less than half price since the carton was missing. The pot came with a heavy rubber band that locks the top on when under way. The pot rides in the sink on a silicone hot pad and plugs into a 12v outlet that I added. I get no detectable spillage, even on rough going. I understand that lots of truckers are now using the little crock pots instead of eating at greasy spoons.

My favorite meal is to put in 2 (if flying solo) or 4 (if flying dual) smoked pork chops and pack the remaining space with green beans.

I start the pot when leaving in the morning, and by dinner time I don't need a knife to cut the chops. The green beans have to be the best that I have ever eaten.

Another favorite is sauerkraut with caraway seeds and some pre-browned sausage.
