Gifts for the Camper

Our neighbor’s were so excited we bought a camper, they came bearing gifts!  I like gifts.

OH BOY!!  A trash can!  Now you want one; I just know it.   This was such an exciting gift, the neighbor’s wife had come along to help present this supreme offering.

I am really excited to get this can.  It isn’t just an ordinary can.  It is so much more.  It’s a turkey oven.  Everyone say Woot!!   What?  You’ve never cooked a turkey in  a trash can before? Where have you been?  Oh with me, because I’ve never done it either.

The neighbors swear this is the best way to cook a turkey.  Especially while camping, since our camper oven will only hold a small cookie sheet.  I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen a 2″ turkey that will fit in that oven.  Photo coming later.

So, how do you cook in a trash can?  Good question.  You can find excellent instructions at TheTrashCanTurkey.

I am so looking forward to giving this a try.  If we don’t get to go camping for Thanksgiving this year, we will be making this in our backyard.   Now go get yourself a nice clean aluminum trash can, bake your turkey, and report back to me. 😀


I also bought myself a gift for the camper.  Lights.  Yep, you have to have patio lights.  It’s a hidden law among  RV campers.  The neighbors bought grapes.  I wanted grapes, but apparently the neighbors have the all because I cant’ find any.  However; I found a better set of lights.

You have to admit, these are me. Right?

  1. Those lights are just perfect for you. They would have only been more perfect had they been spiders.

    Trash-can turkey!? I can’t wait to see the blog post on that. Camping over Thanksgiving sounds fun. I want a camper.

  2. Wish I had neighbors like that! LOVE the lights! Like Kristy, I’m waiting to hear about the turkey….

  3. I love the lights!

    How exactly are you supposed to cook this turkey? Like, do you light a bonfire under it or what? Or maybe it’s one of those things like they do with duck eggs in China, where you bury it and then dig it up a hundred years later and pretend it’s a delicacy.

    Either way, color me intrigued.

  4. This really works and the best part is the man does the cooking! I want to try a ham (perhaps next weekend) and will share the results with my new camper groupie friend across the street :o)

  5. Ewww Deb! Rotten eggs?? Really!!? Wow. And Eww Kristy, spiders?? yuck! (but you’re right – totally her!) And I agree…I want a camper for hiding, erm…I mean ‘getting away’ for the holidays!

  6. I do love the dragonflies! =)
