Still Cooking while Truck Camping

It has been raining, so I have been thinking about cooking while truck camping. (There are more thoughts on alternatives to a truck topper here.)

breakfast ingredients while truck camping

The breakfast drawer holds my favorite oatmeal oatmeal:
Bob’s Red Mill Scottish Oatmeal – 20 oz – 2 Pack. I put it in a ziplock bag, mixed with dried cranberries and pecans.

The milk (Peak Dry Whole Milk Powder) is divine. Tastes creamy. Can add it to cold liquids and it dissolves instantly. Great in hot chocolate or in cereal or coffee.milk for truck camping

To cook with I use ghee (ANCIENT ORGANICS 100% Organic Ghee from Grass-fed Cows, 32oz) or olive oil. The ghee is great. Holds up to heat and cold, tastes great, has a high burning point.

I love cooking oatmeal for brunch … if the wind isn’t howling and its not raining. Right now I am in a NM State Park called Riverside (part of Caballo State Park) on the banks of the Rio Grande. Birds are singing me awake every morning and easing me into night time.riverside campground

      thanks! I hesitate adding too many just pretty shots. I really want others to go out and take the pictures, not just look at mine!

    I make steel cut oats and quinoa, half and half. You can let it sit, after adding boiling water, for an hour or overnight. If you can’t keep it warm, you have to reheat.

    Sure you know this but saw recipe to put everything for your oatmeal in a jar and leave overnight. It is “cooked” by morning. However, i suppose it is cold
    Love your stories – always
    snow and cold here

    Since Glenn is a southern boy and I’m a northern girl, our TC is always stocked with oatmeal AND grits.

    Nothing like oatmeal. It helps with energy, cholesterol and a myriad of things. I just love Bob’s Red Mill Scottish Oatmeal. Great choice!


  6. We eat Bobs Red Mill Scottish Oatmeal almost every morning! We cook it with raisins & apples then add fresh fruit like bananas or strawberries & frozen blueberries (wild Maine) and chopped nuts. I eat it with a tablespoon of coconut oil. YUM!!
