Baking out of an RV
Anybody have experience with this? I am temporarily in an RV, waiting on my home to be repaired from a fire. Want to continue my bread making lessons and am trying to figure out how to go about getting set up for it.
1. Work space-Where the heck do I shape/work with this dough without making a royal mess? I'm thinking about pulling up a large folding table but my outdoor table is a rough/plastic surface. What could I use ontop? The giant cutting board got packed and don't want to spend lots of money on a duplicate.
2. Cooking in the gas grill and/or tiny oven. I'm going hunting for Saltillo tiles Friday. Home Depot didn't have them. (in Phoenix of all places!!) Will line grill grates with tiles for baking. Baked a "1st lesson" bread in the tiny oven Monday in the middle of the night because I couldn't sleep in my new "house". The oven worked surprisingly well, although I'd like to check the temp to see how accurate it is. I cooked it in my salad bowel. I need to go hunting for some cheap pans or something as well. Cookie sheet won't fit and don't want to cook outside all the time. Other than my necessary sub of high gluten flour (no AP) the bread would have been wonderful. I wish I had thought to cut the gluten with some whole wheat!
3. Where's a good place to buy some inexpensive bread utensils? My stuff got packed out of my house in such a hurry I didn't have time to even think about what I would really want to keep in my RV. I'm lucky to have a couple of plates and a set of silverware. I also would like to buy a food scale while I'm at it.
Well, thanks from my front yard in Mesa, AZ!!!
