We just got our SunDanzer ultra-efficient DC freezer set up today! Oh how nice it is to be able eat something other than canned goods in the summer :D And we can freeze the blue-ice blocks to keep the coolers cold, so no more icky ice-watery mess to deal with. We got the smaller one, 5.8 cu, but it looks like we're going to need to go shopping/fishing/hunting again to fill it up. Nice thing about this model is that is can run on a single 75W solar panel with a 12v battery back-up in our climate... and we only have to run it 6 mos out of the year anyway. I'm celebrating with a lovely glass of iced tea... with real ICE, and wild blueberries from our patch, thank you very much :)
My folks also got us a little propane stovetop with broiler compartment for my birthday, and G got me a airpot thermal carafe. So now we can make coffee in a snap and keep it hot all day. But the ultimate coolness was simple melted cheese on toast in the little broiler since we've been without top-heat cooking for a year. Have to see what it does with biscuits since drop biscuits in the skillet are getting a little old.
So, we might not be able to build the cabin yet, but we're starting to get a more civilized "kitchen" anyway :)
