Reusing some waste heat in from your engine bay to cook a meal on your way home.

After I showed this to a few people, I found out that there is a book called "Manifold Destiny" on this very subject. I have not read it yet, but I'm told that there are quite a few recipe's with locations and times (miles).

Step 1: Gather Some Ingredients

This was mostly improvised... But on my menu:

+Baked Chicken and Herbs (chicken breast, flour, your choice of herbs - I used mostly basil)
+Italian Chicken (chicken breast marinated in zesty Italian salad dressing cooked with pepper and onion)
+Red and Green Peppers and mushroom Noodles (used noodles from a ramen package, added a little EVOO, and cooked in vegetable stock)
+Baked Potato Pieces (salted with a little cooking oil)
+Baked Apples (sliced in half with a pat of butter and scoop of brown sugar)


My husband and I are on our way to seattle from north idaho soon. This will be perfect for a nice mid trip dinner. I can't wait to try it. Perhaps some baked chicken with corn and some apple pie for dessert....
<p>what part of idaho? im from CDA</p>
Well, hello from Idaho! :D
<p>Its<br>really a terrific idea and i must say how to cook in this process. But yes<br>technology is inventing so many new options so may be <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2IYppbycW0" rel="nofollow">automotive technology</a><br>will be applying some sort of safety measures to avoid any problem in the<br>vehicle.</p>
<p>This is an ingenious idea indeed! I wonder whether it is safe though like is there any gas stench or chemical contamination? Also are there any issues cooking on a new car versus a used car? I guess you are right about this type of cooking which basically needs a high level of experimentation with the trial and error method.</p>
<p>....combine ingredients and cook at 60mph for 40-70 miles. :)</p><p>I've been menaing to try this. I do road trips every so often.</p>
<p>terrific :)</p>
