The best part is it's a very short walk to the vendor tent, which of course garners the most interest. That's my HUGE golf cart parked in front of my rig. It was supposed to be a small flip-back, but for the fourth year in a row, they didn't save one for me. Instead, I got the Monster. It's okay though because there's a roof for when it rains!!
The very first morning was quiche time, so I set about grating cheese and preparing them to bake. About two hours later, I looked out the window to find a beautiful sunrise. This part of the country knows how to do morning.
I grated, mixed and stirred my way through four quiches. No eggs in these yet and I completely forgot to take pictures. It didn't go without a hitch however. I left my hand mixer in Arizona and purchased a beautiful red one for the rig. Up until now, I never needed it.
The cinnamon rolls require a cream cheese frosting. I had set the cream cheese and butter out to soften, but figured the mixer would do most of the work. I inserted the beaters and turned it on. One beater when flying across the room with a loud clang, flinging butter along the way.
I must have put them in wrong. I double and triple checked the two sides and inserted them again. Twang ..... it flew off into the sink. Well for heaven's sake!! Nothing I did could make that beater stay in it's appointed hole. Have you ever tried to use just ONE to beat up cream cheese? What a mess!!
With nothing working, I stuck it in the microwave to melt a tad, then in the fridge to set back up. I finally got it done, but it took WAY too long.
In the middle of all that I raised and lowered my rig so Jim Fulkerson could change the oil and filters, grease everything important and check my generator. I'm good to go for another year. THANK YOU JIM! $432 in case you were wondering.
The quiches went to their respective ovens with instructions. I turned off everything in my rig and set one in my Breville oven. It seemed to be working fine. Eventually, I stuck a pan of rolls in the convection oven and turned IT on. No circuit breakers were harmed. Thank you Karma!!!
Breakfast was served!! I even included a bottle of Baileys. Everything turned out VERY well. If you need a quick and easy quiche recipe, this one is it. Frozen pie shell, precooked bacon and onion, Jarlsberg cheese, 7 eggs and 1-1/2 cups cream (or half and half). Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes (give or take) on cookie sheet pan that has been preheated in the oven. That makes the bottom crust brown perfectly.
With that cleaned up, I was off to Costco and Smart & Final to double check on my ice cream. They have it all in stock and it's paid for. All I have to do now is pick it up. One member who tows a pickup truck with a tonneau cover has offered it for delivery. I think we're in like Flynn. I even have a freezer inside a building for storing it.
This morning ... pancake breakfast!! HOWEVER, it has to be completely prepared by the MEN. Ladies get a reprieve and bloody Mary's to boot. THIS time I'm taking pictures!
