This trip we have enjoyed experimenting with cooking. To cook, we are furnished with a crock pot, electric fry pan, and a single-burner hotplate. First Mom cooked refrigerated biscuits in the electric fry pan, and that has lead us to think of more things we might be able to make in the fry pan that we normally cook in the oven. The other day Jesse made us pigs in blankets (hotdogs with biscuits wrapped around them). Joseph tried his hand at grilled cheese sandwiches, which we usually cook in the electric fry pan.
IÂ had the idea of making chocolate chip cookies in the fry pan so we bought some refrigerated cookie dough. Because of using the electric fry pan, I had to flip the cookies after one side had cooked to get the other side done as well! These cookies were voted better as dough – if you get what the family politely thought of the cooked cookies. Nevertheless, we are working at trying out different things in our crock pot and electric fry pan! Last night for John’s birthday dinner, we had chili cheese dip made in the crockpot served with tortilla chips. Another day we made boxed au gratin potatoes in the crockpot.
