Just wish I had the proper recipe for a homemade strawberry vinaigrette I had a couple of years ago at a going away for a friend-of-a-friend thing. All I know is they whipped it up in about 30 seconds using fresh strawberries and and a couple of other goodies. Super light and amazing fresh taste. Have kicked myself ever since for not getting it/writing it down.

My experiments have only been "OK" at best.

And I am totally on board with starting a perma-thread for road recipes.

I'd love a road recipes thread. Popup portal has a dutch oven recipe thread! I just got a dutch oven for my birthday this year. I've made bacon potato and mushroom stew, and cheesy dorito enchilada casserole. Mmmmmm. Not so healthy though!

Here's an easy slaw recipe. Needs no refrigeration. I make this the night before:

Oil and Vinegar Slaw Recipe : Rachael Ray : Food Network

Pack any smoked meats from the deli

Pack your favorite cheeses

Pack good sandwich rolls

Pack some good pickles

None of the above needs refrigeration. Just cut a roll, and stuff it with the above.

If you wanted tomatoes, don't cut before making the sammy. Lettuce either.

for a snack, pack mixed nuts. Dehydrated fruit.

I like bread and cheese for a snack.

Sounds good, thanks, I'll have to try it. The home brew I enjoyed took a quick spin in a blender that reduced the strawberries and I don't see why this one couldn't.

Hey Moddies...what about a sticky/permanent "Skoolie Road Recipes" thread?

How's that working? Brand? Price?

I've seen bad reviews of most of the solid state coolers as being power hogs and not that great at cooling

There are some new generation, 12v compressors that work like gangbusters. Nothing like the toy solid state junk "coolers". Can't recall the details off the top of my head but an outfit called "Whynter" makes several different units including a true dual-zone refrigerator-freezer. Home Depot is even carrying them (special order).

Not cheap, but they have received excellent reviews from users.

There's this discount store in town (Bargain Hunt) and they frequently have a Wynter or two. They tend to get their stuff from returns & such from places like Target & I feel some of the shopping networks on TV. I have bought many electrical products through them with no problems.

The prices aren't that bad new & at this store.
