There is no way Susan could know who are you. You don't have a pic of you or have your name posted. You would be just another person in a very large group. Yet another face in the crowd. Unless of course your FB profile has pianoman on it and you started posting.

True. I was just joking anyhow, but that's hard to convey on the internet sometimes. I was kinda careful when with Swift about guarding my identity on here, but I'm not too cautious about that now. I even posted a pic with my truck number, so if someone from my company wanted to know who I was they could figure it out easily enough.

Awesome thread! I wondered about this stuff. I plan to do all of my cooking in the truck once I get to solo status. I found an excellent deal on a crock pot at Wal-Mart the other day so I grabbed it early and it will be ready and waiting. Other than that I was thinking about picking up one of those electric double burners and a decent non stick pot/pan set so they're easy to clean.

I'll definitely be checking out that fb group

I would just grab a single burner, space is a premium. Besides, those things eat up a lot of juice. You would need a fairly large inverter to power 2 burners at once.

I ADORE the lunchbox cooker I bought recently. It would be perfect for you since you're home every weekend. Make up enough foil pans of food on the weekends to last through the week, cover with foil, and pop in your fridge. About an hour or two before stopping for the day, pop one in the cooker and dinner is waiting when you're parked! Casseroles work really well for this. I have a few lunchbox cooker videos up on my YouTube channel if you want to see some stuff you can make.

Foil pans, paper plates and plastic utensils make clean up super easy.

And yes, you should join BTC on Facebook. Tons of great ideas and nice people. I'm a member as well.

Oh right I had not considered power consumption with the double burner. Thanks for the tip
