Day 47 - Convection Oven Success

The convection oven did a decent job browning the rib roast. I’ve heard that they just don’t get hot enough to brown but it did okay. Three of the courses needed to be “baked” so all of them used the convection oven. The roast was sous vide for 7 hours at 135°F then finished off in the convection oven at 450°F for 10 minutes. The baby potatoes were roasted at 400°F for an hour and the asparagus was roasted at 375°F for 20 minutes. The asparagus was served with hollandaise (not homemade).

Pretzel rolls and some Cabernet finished off our first Christmas dinner on the road. This was also our first Christmas on our own. Our Christmas tree is just behind Bridget along with some lighted garland. Dessert were items from the Safeway bakery.

The movie tonight was Santa Clause 2. I had seen the first one before but none of the sequels. 


  1. Fun with cooking on the road. You're adapting well.

    1. Cooking on the road is a hobby. After all, someone needs to do it. The sous vide is the newest gadget so it gets used a lot. Especially since we are in an RV park and not running off of our batteries. The challenge is cooking for two. We always seem to have leftovers but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
