So, you get saddled with cooking the Thanksgiving turkey, but you also have to transport it to Grandma’s house 200 mies away. A real pain, right? Well, cooking is all about efficiencies, especially something as stressful as Thanksgiving dinner. So, why don’t you just roast the turkey on the way to the gathering – in your car’s engine. Really. We’re not kidding.
Actually, it’s the idea behind the book, Manifold Destiny (Simon and Schuster), by Chris Maynard and Bill Scheller, who created this the guide to cooking on your car engine. According to a USAToday.com article, the book explains how to prepare, foil wrap and tuck an uncooked dinner into various places under your car’s hood so that your casserole or roast is sizzling hot and waiting when you arrive.
Now, is it possible to tackle a whole turkey dinner under your hood? Well, sorta. But a breast, complete with potatoes, shouldn’t require much more than 200 miles or so. And you’ll have the full aroma of a roasting turkey and potatoes during your entire drive.
Just some news to chew on. And Happy Thanksgiving from the News to Chew staff.
