We have been subsisting on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for a while now. One night we have grape, the next peach. We have apples with peanut butter, and we have bananas with peanut butter. So Glen brought us a little dorm fridge. The camper fridge refuses to work.
We started brainstorming things we can make just using hot water. I can make hot water on the tiny stove and I have a brand spanking new Keurig coffee maker, so I can make oatmeal. The coffee maker may just go into storage, it seems so useless to me at the moment.
As an FYI - Katrina hit 11 years ago today. We were out of electricity for about 8 hours. New Orleans died from the flooding that happened three days after the storm.
I need healthy foods. I can think of Mac and cheese in those cups, ugh. Maybe I need to go to whole foods and see, at least they might have quinoa or something not so calorie heavy and nutrient deficient. If I had a vehicle. When Frank leaves, he has the truck. And he is never in town at an office, he calls on plants up and down the river corridor. We are just not normal.
Once I get a bbq pit again, we can grill some chicks and veggies. But leftovers will be a problem with the tiny fridge.
And I have the problem of the stupid Boyz who scour countertops for any morsel of food. Or whatever they find in the way of destroy able items. So I can only buy small amounts of foodstuffs that can go int night camper cabinets and the precious few shelves. You should see the elaborate system I have to prevent that them from getting anything in the camper. In the house, nothing was below the countertop unless it was in a child proof locked cabinet. McGee can expose a chink in the armor in a heartbeat.
And because the camper came out of the New Orleans area, it has som roaches. I have never had a proble with roaches in the house, so I guess I need to get an exterminator who can put something in here that won't kill us and the dogs.
The limited storage of the camper is a problem. We have the potential of some space in the single garage building when it completely dries out, so that may offer a few more options. It is detached
from the house and has an ancient window unit a/c dating from the days Frank's father owned the camp in Hopedale, LA. That got wiped out in HUrricane Betsy and the unit went under water, but still works!
So, camping food suggestions, anyone?
