    Starting this thread for very easy (tastes like home cooked meals) you can put together in 5 min or less and eat at the end of your drive. You can buy the inserts for your crock pot and paper dishes so you have no clean up.

    Great start for a thread.
    I hope to start training in about a month and I'm gathering ideas/recipes. I'd like to avoid the typical McD/Taco Bell etc that's in so many places.

    Glad you like it. Good luck in training and be sure to drive safely. I gathered a bunch of ideas before coming on the truck with my husband and the best ways to cook without a full kitchen. Hopefully I can help out by sharing some of what I have learned.

    Hot logic 12v works well in the truck. I'm home most nights. I avoid fast food. Been eating cold sandwiches almost 10 years for dinner. What a improvement.

    Rice and beans with smokies:
    1 can red black or kidney beans
    1 can refried beans
    1 pack of little smokies (I like all beef)
    Instant rice
    Mince onions, minced garlic, red and black pepper ( to taste)
    place liner in crockpot add all ingredients except rice and add water till it’s a little runny. Cook till done driving. Add your instant rice once your rice is done which should only be about 5-10 min and enjoy. You could also use microwave rice and pour over your bean mixture just add a little less rice.
