Winebuff, you might want to try Googling it and see if any place in your general area carries it. I can assure you Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro will have a deep fryer specifically set aside to cook up lumpia. And the sauce (in the spoon on the picture you posted) is heavenly. I will most assuredly be bringing that in hopes that the playa will provide lumpia.


I can get frozen lumpia.....

I feel like the pusherman.


I can provide the wine Doc and AntiM :)

Phil, that is right up my alley. Did she make them or buy them??? yummy

trader joe's had some canned little shrimp when I was perusing yesterday. I'll put a couple of cans and a jar of shrimp cocktail sauce in the cooler, and see when the appropriate time comes. I like that I don't have to scare anyone with pre-made shrimp cocktail. if they are nervous about it (I would be) I can open the cans as they watch.

Chilled cans of Thai iced tea..... so so good to cool down with. Sweet yet a good kick to it. I'm bringing a bunch with me this time (last time I brought only two cans and I was craving them).

Can someone tell me, to keep foods colder in your cooler, do you line the INSIDE of the cooler with reflective materials or OUTSIDE the cooler? If inside the cooler, does the shiny part face inside (towards the food)?

reflect the outside. keep cooler off the ground & under shade. I'm not sure you would need refective material if it's under the shade. Also, don't open the cooler much. I have two. One for drinks & one for food.
Ice is sold there, so there is no real need for panic.

Ditto...put it on bricks or Mason bricks. Try and use dry ice, but don't try to lick it!

(or cheaper product from GMC that's just like it)

Really, that's all I need for the week. Just got to keep them out of direct sunlight. Like under the sleeping bag and comforter in the tent during the day.
I have a little bit of Savannah with me. Shhh...

gonna try an experiment this evening. Roman Rusk. simple recipe... 1/2 flour, 1/2 honey. bake at 350.

This is a good backpacking food, waybread even if you like.

So the twist is I'm going to try something I saw at TJ's and have never used. peanut flour. for my gluten free visitors.

could be a mess, but I'm dying to try it out. It's a hard sticky cookie sort of thing with regular flour. good, (necessary) for dunking in a hot beverage.
