We're all interested in the MH stuff, and we've been pretty liberal in off topic stuff as normally its semi-related and swings back to the original topic within a reasonable timeframe. The swings off topic are getting more frequent and going farther off topic.

If there is nothing to report on the original subject we certainly don't need a report on beans. Its OK to NOT post something every day.

This thread is coming up on its 4th anniversary, there is plenty enough to re-read if you feel the need.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

My apologies to everyone. I'll do better.

Spreadsheet up date for tonight.

I have 2 updates that I haven't entered, and it's been a few weeks.

First is the string Led's that I bought on Amazon to try out. Those will be used, and I may have to get more, not sure at this point yet.

They amounted to $31.76.

Also, I had to purchase another piece of 3/4" plywood to finish the framing for the last 4 drawers that I built.

That amounted to $62.52.

That's a total of $94.28.

Our prior grand total was $11,142.10 and with this extra we are now sitting at $11,236.38.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Ours started off a little rough.

We made a big pot of Chili, figuring we would have leftovers for a couple of days.

We used some dried kidney beans, which we soaked overnight, rinsed, and instead of cooking them, we just put them in the Chili mix in the slow cooker.

Fast forward 8 hours, and it's time to eat.

Low and behold, the beans are not soft, but still faily "chewey".

Undeterred, we ate the Chili anyway. Eating the beans was a little like eating Brocolli, which was steamed very minimally, and still crunchy inside.

Evidently, eating not fully cooked kidney beans is not recommended for our bodies. Both of our intestinal tracts have become fully cleaned out, over a period of hours, and as such neither one of us is now full of ****, (excrement).

So, perhaps tomorrow will be off to a better start for the week.! [emoticon]

Have a great rest of the weekend, folks.

The long answer is ... We used to have a 4 quart model, which was just a simple - Off, Low, or High model. There was no temperature control, and if we left food in too long, it would overcook and boil the liquid off.

We switched to a more modern Hamilton Beach 6 quart model - (Link to Amazon), which was a vast improvement, as it did not over cook foods.

Later on, we added an Instant Pot to our kitchen. (Amazon Link).

That is also a 6 quart model. After using it for a while, we decided this would be a better option for the motor home, because we can use one device for slow cooking and pressure cooking, as well as other functions.

Once the wife got used to it, she just loves it because of all the recipes available for it, many of which cook in a short amount of time.

The bottom drawers I built will be able to hold the Instant Pot, as well as Bread Maker and some other appliances that we don't want to leave home without.

These numbers are only for the rehab. We have owned this since 2002, and had used it for a number of shorter trips, as well a couple of extended ones.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, we were unable to use it for a number of years, so it just sat there, waiting to be used.

On a few occasions, I would just go out and sit in it for a while, and day dream, waiting for the day I could use it again.

We found that it was cheaper to buy (2002 prices) this one, rather than try to rent one for a 6 week trip to the west coast, which we eventually took in 2004.

Today I cut 12 of these.

9 were 3/4" thick, and 3 were 1/2" thick, by 1" x roughly 3" long.

I also went into the house, to our "junk drawer", you know, the one with all the miscellaneous stuff that doesn't fit anywhere else, and pick out this package.

These are from every ones favorite cheap big box store, and I applied 2 of them, 1 on each side of the above plywood.

Actually they were on the same side, but each was toward the end of the back side.

I then stuck them on the drawer fronts of the drawers I just built.

I applied some extra pressure, by means of a clamp to make sure they were stuck on correctly.

As you can see, the "ears" of the strips are visible on each end of the plywood.
