In honor of summer camping and the fourth of July, I thought I would share about our new lifestyle, what I like to fondly refer as (but probably not for long) perma camping! Being that we are selling our range since we have a new one on order (more info to come soon;), we decided to move her out and throw her up on Craigslist to give her a new home.
Anyways, we need a way to cook in the meantime. And by meantime, probably at least 3 months, soooo, here is what I have come up with thus far. My mom gave us a toaster OVEN, and I mean it cooks like an oven for real and holds a 8x10 pan. In addition, we had a little burner plate. Steve gave me the REI camp kitchen last Christmas and it is actually really handy. I have yet to use it while "real" camping but it is a gem in our house. I think it will be even more useful when the kitchen is totally demo'd on it moves to our dining room. Not only will is provide a grease splash guard while cooking, but it has another table that can pop out to the left for a prep surface.
