Wishing our family, friends and all our faithful readers a Merry Christmas and happiness throughout this holiday. Several of the RVs in the Wandering Oaks RV Resort & Campground here in Ocala, Fl. have put up festive decorations all lit up at night. It looks very Christmassy and joyful. We feel blessed to be spending this Christmas in a warm climate (84F/28C), which is very much to our liking. Today we sat outside most of the day sipping a vintage white wine, reading our Kindle Fire and iPad and relaxing. Even the dogs were mellow lying by our feet watching the squirrels and birds. What a life.
Just a couple of days ago I had commented on a blog that I wished our travel trailer came equipped with a convection oven as most of the larger RVs have a combination microwave/convection oven over their stoves. At home my large stove has convection and in addition I use a large digital convection/toaster oven that I would not want to ever miss as it makes my life so much easier. Our travel trailer has only a microwave over the propane stove/oven, but not a convection oven. I had been thinking that our countertop would not be large enough to add another appliance and still have room to prepare meals in comfort. That is until yesterday.
Of all places, we found a stainless steel by Oster made toaster/convection oven at Walmart that fits the bill. Literally speaking.
This toaster/convection oven is small enough to sit on the countertop and big enough to bake a 9” cake/pizza or anything else for the two of us. But it is the convection, which we really enjoy especially at breakfast time when we bake up fresh Chicago rolls, bagels or croissants in no time at all.
The price: I’m almost ashamed to say it was only $39.95. What a bargain. I guess this is my Christmas present!
Wishing you all the very best this Christmas from Marlene, Benno and the two doxies.
