Manual Appliances

The main idea of using "manual" appliances should be self explanatory...not needing to use ELECTRICITY! I have found that there is great satisfaction to not having to be "plugged-in". Meaning that Boondocking places are far more available and being off-the-grid saves those dollars for more food, fuel and entertainment.

Three-Bean Pasta Salad

We combined two potluck classics—pasta salad and three-bean salad—to make one tasty new side dish. Blanched celery is the unexpected star in this side dish; it has a tender-crisp texture and bright green color. Swap out the canned beans for your favorite cooked field peas.

Ingredients
8 ounces uncooked small shell pasta
8 ounces fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-in. pieces (about 2 cups)
½ cup thinly sliced celery (about 1 stalk)
1 pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 small shallot, minced
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon lemon zest plus 2 Tbsp. fresh juice (from 1 lemon)
