Almost the End of November – Yet We Are Not on the Road – We Are Resting Up – What Do We Do – I Have Fun Cooking – Again – But I Have No Oven – Do I Need One –

cornbread

How can I bake without an oven? I baked this cornbread on top of the stove in my iron skillet. The cornbread was good. Someday we may replace the dishwasher with an oven. I’ve been told there are little toaster ovens that may be used for baking, but our counter top space is already being used. I prepared meatloaf in my slow cooker. I can have fun cooking without an oven. Can I not?

While we were camping along the roads of our country, Steve and I worked out a method of cooking that was simple and produced satisfying meals. Steve grilled the meats outside, and I cooked the sides inside. It worked well for us, but willingly I had allowed my cooking fun to be stifled. Being here almost a month and not having to engage in getting ready to hit the road again, my thoughts returned to cooking. I am back in the kitchen for fun! I’m having so much fun that it has rubbed off on Steve, and he prepared a plate of Bruschetta for our lunch yesterday.

We had fried tilapia, stir-fried vegetables, pickled beets (prepared the day before), and Steve’s bruschetta. The bruschetta was delicious. It was all good. And WE had fun cooking and eating lunch together.
