I am always interested in learning new stuff. You got info I will take it. Thanks!

I do love that truck. It took me forever to find a pic of a perfect pink truck. I wish I had it. I have never been in a truck with a sit in sleeper so I dont know how I would react. How tall are they usually? I am only 5'3 so maybe I can still pull up all my big girl paintys. Lol

Where do I get a Burton Cooker and one of the thermos coffee pots, it will be a while before I need those, but I like to plan ahead and buy a few things at a time. Also any tips for packing clothes and what kind do I need? A variety of items? I was planning on driving with my boyfriend, he has driven for about 17 years and knows all the ins and outs, but that ended suddenly...guess it was too close for comfort. What are must haves?

OK...I found em !!! Go to www.amazon.com and type in Road Pro in the search. They have the Portable stove, and the Hot Pot thermos. And the price there is alot cheaper than the truckstops.

I don't cook in my truck. I just got an igloo electice cooler (ice chest) and I love it:) Can't pack much into one but hey. I'm starting to think I need a wife lol They seem to be real handy and knifty for all this stuff. I should have been born a man lol I just don't see a point in cooking for one. However fruity peebles is an awesome breakfast:) I didn't know you were from Louisiana Old School! I'm from lafayette:)

I think I'm gonna open another topic JUST for recipes, and things to go in the truck for snacks, etc. Then maybe Brett will fix it where it doesn't time out...or whatever happens to threads that don't get added to everyday.....

A bag of spinach leaves is enough for two meals. Nuke 1/2 bag for one minute, add 2 eggs already stirred or shaken along with onions or mushrooms or cheese, whatever and nuke for 2 more minutes. Presto you have a spinach omelet.

Use protein shakes, as long as they are low in sugar for the occasional meal replacement. Try heating them up, it is so good.

A bag of three romaine lettuce heads, chop one up, add some chopped red onion, dress with olive oil and apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper. Yum, my favorite salad. Onions you can get pre-chopped at grocery store salad bars, while you're buying the lettuce. Microwave a chicken breast or fish steak along with some cut up sweet bell peppers and you have a complete dinner.

Or you can saute the bell peppers and meat with a little olive oil in an electric fry pan. I have a George Forman Jr grill that I use for the meat sometimes. When cool it wipes clean. I like easy clean up.

Take your daily vitamins and drink lots of water. Live strong and healthy.

Wow really very amazing idea. This is too nice option to cook in the truck. Till not I don’t have any idea about this. Now I get to know just because of you. This is more beneficial for truckers like me. All truckers can get food on the time. And yes don’t forget to have truck tarps for your truck to protect it from dust.

When cooking in the truck with a lunch box cooker, do you have a problem with lingering cooking odor? Or does driving with the windows open a while take care of it?
