Truck camping without a cooler is my way of travel. I hated getting the ice, worried about keeping chicken fresh, too much trouble, too much room it took up for the rewards it offered. Without a cooler eggs can stay good for 10-12 days if bought from a grocery store, Spam now comes in envelopes, greenish tomatoes ripen in the window. I have never put mayo or mustard or ketchup in the fridge. Broccoli doesn’t last past a day if the weather is warm. Cabbage is great if you peel off the leaves instead of cutting the head in half. Rock hard avocados last for a week or so. Tortillas last, I think, forever. Almond milk lasts for a very long time.
I miss lettuce, cheese, and yogurt. I miss seafood (but have been given fresh caught trout!). I hanker for ice cream sometimes. I develop a craving for chicken livers sometimes, and swing into the nearest Chesters.
An avocado on top of ghee toasted buns with siracha and Braggs. Delicious.
An easy lunch with peanut butter, sesame Wasa crackers, Granny Smith apples and some siracha. Perfect. No dishes to wash.
The salad below was made from 1/2 can of black beans, 1 tiny can of corn, 1/2 can of tomatoes, some spicy pickles, some chipotle powder, and a capful of ginger/sesame salad dressing. It was heavenly, and enough leftovers for breakfast. The can of beans was the start. While at the WRTR a woman said “Don’t you eat beans? I have 1 can every day.” I was startled since I had never thought of canned beans as something tasty. I was very wrong. This meal above kept me happy all day.
Breakfast of Spam, eggs and bean dip. 1/2 for breakfast, 1/2 for lunch.
The links take you to a place to buy the item. It doesn’t cost you more, I get a few cents from the transaction. Well, not Chesters as much as I love their chicken livers.
