Oh what a wonderful surprise!
The potato/tomato chicken soup with garlic, onions and Texas Pete. So good. So easy.
First poured boiling water in the thermos and closed it up.
Then, in a 1 quart pot I fried up some onions, bell peppers, a cut up small potato and celery. Then added a tiny can of V8 and about a cup of water. Added smashed garlic, a splash of Bragg’s and Texas Pete, with a shake of freeze dried veggies. Brought it to a rolling boil. Emptied the thermos. Poured in the soup. Closed up everything and went on my way.
At 5 pm I opened the thermos and was disappointed.
The potatoes looked raw. One taste and I was sold. The potatoes were perfect. Having cooked so gently for so long they held their shape and were cooked perfectly. The soup was very hot and very tasty.
I will try more stuff and next time will include pictures. This time I just sat down and ate.
This thermos cooking is a great way to go while truck camping. The key is to have a very good thermos.
**(After a few years the cleaning out of the thermos was way too expensive in terms of time and water. I gave up on this method.)
