    I cook in my “12 volt car oven on the road.” I have one that is able to get to 350 degrees. I wrap each entree in foil and place each meal in a labeled bag. Then when it is time to cook I place the foiled entrees in the oven at the appropriate time. I drive my hungry family crazy in the car with tantlizing smells of sweet potato baking in my oven! My family stops at a restaurant and I eat in the car in the parking lot. I get the best of the deal, except for company to eat with. If I had less people, or more oven capability, I would like to cook for them all.

    I also take an electric skillet and crock pot. We try to get a hotel room with a kitchen. I pack meals with my own ready- to- use spice packs and all of their pieces. With the crock pot, I can throw everything in the morning and leave it to cook all day.

    If you do use eggs hard boiled ones can be packed along in an egg carton. Another take along is some canned salmon or chicken meat. I used them when taking a long airline trip.

    Packing list for kitchen goods.

    plates

    cups

    bowls

    forks

    spoons

    electeric skillet

    spatula

    pie pans (I use for food storage)

    knives

    napkins

    salt

    spices

    Ice

    Eggs

    meals

    supplements

    milk

    Butter/oil

    foil

    scrub brush for dishes

    Dish Soap

    towels

    pot holders

    A large pot for washing dishes

    A Full jug of well water drinking.

    In the car I have a bin. This bin contains everything I need on the road for meals. I will try to list the things, but I don’t have it written out. This bin now lives in my car ready for day trips or vacation. Contents:

    Paper plates

    Paper bowls

    Plastic utensils (make sure they are not corn if corn is a problem.)

    napkins

    sea salt

    packages of honey

    Knives

    Can opener

    This bin in the car has made it so much easier for me to go places. It is ready with little effert. Okay, so sometimes you have to use a spoon for spaghetti, but that is better than no utensil at all!

    What a great list. I recently went to Palm Desert to visit my parents and brought my own food, but got sick, probably because I used their dishtowels, sponges, cutting boards, and utensils. I’m still learning how much hidden gluten there is everywhere. It’s mind boggling. Trying not to get too paranoid, but I feel like a gluten phobic. Guess you have to be when you have severe gluten intolerance.Confused

    Oh, yeah, I get sick when eating away too. Dr. Osborne told me that I eat at home every time now. I do what you mean about feeling gluten phobic, but what do ya do?
