thermal success

i tried two oatmeal experiments last night. the first was another shot at the big thermal cooker using my small tiffin. half a cup of oatmeal to a cup and a half of boiling water (plus cranberries and pecans...YMMV). i put the tiffin in the thermal's interior pot, added more boiling water to the rim of the tiffin, topped it off with a couple of pot holders to fill the empty space and closed the lid. i think it was about 4.30am when i did this. at 11 this morning, i opened the tiffin.

Perfectly done yummy delicious awesome oatmeal.

i also wanted to try the thermos method because it is better for making one serving. leftovers requires refrigeration and that requires more power than my solars can pull. half a cup of oatmeal and filled thermos with boiling water. i set the thermos on its side to better distribute the heat.

almost perfect oatmeal, but not so much.

it will work, but i need less oatmeal and more water. it was cooked, but thicker than i like. i usually add soymilk so it wasn't a big deal, but i did have to scoop it out to add milk since it expanded right up to the top.

overall, i think i will stick with the thermos method for oatmeal for one. tonight or tomorrow i am going to try a single serving of black beans or lentils with some rice in the thermos.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
