Benny the Boler

Ta-Da! Here is Benny the Boler after. A delightful little trailer that is on the open road travelling and camping. This fibreglass trailer is 44 years old, can you believe it? Benny the Boler after is so great – I’m excited to share these photos with you and hopefully inspire you to go camping yourself.

Done.

Check out this beautifully sunny trainer – Benny the Boler. Did you see the before photos? This 1974 13-foot trailer has come a long way. New upholstery, new paint, and solid reinforced (sandblasted and painted) frame. Safety first, people, safety first.

The bunk.

The kitchen, icebox, and closet.

The dinette – doesn’t it just look so cozy?

The dinette turns into a bed – so comfy.

That bunk also functions as a couch – either way, it’s a practical use of space.

That’s it!

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you have as much fun doing you as we do doing us. Isn’t life just awesome sometimes? Happy camping!!

Benny the Boler Before: 3ten.ca

Benny the Boler

Meet Benny the Boler before his makeover. We picked up this 1974 Boler last August in Calgary. It was so bad we needed to tow it home on a flatbed. Thankfully we own one. From a cracked frame, to a wonky closet and even original cushions you’ll be impressed how great Benny looks after. Take a peek through all of these before pictures and then visit again on Saturday to check out the after. It’ll be so fun!

These curtains are yucky. A pink mess.

So dirty – first thing we need to do is clean it out.

Yay! This Boler fits in the shop. Sweetness! We were excited Benny fit in the shop so we could work on him over the winter. Just let a little air out of the tires and ‘poof!’.

Well, at least we know there is some space in there.

And the bunk will work – seems to be holding up all of those cushions rather nicely.

Time to get the frame out. We did this ourselves, or I supervised more or less.

Benny the Boler Before: 3ten.ca

This project took on a whole lot of frame work. Safety first, right? Check back on Saturday to see the after results – it’ll be worth it! Then you can say goodbye to Benny the Boler before.

Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you again soon.

Recipe: Egg Tostada

Egg Tostada: 3ten.ca

Egg tostada – so good and pretty easy to make. Take your breakfast up a notch and wow that special someone in your life. Let’s get cooking!

Ingredients

  • 4 corn tortillas and 4 free run eggs
  • 1 cup of black bean dip
  • 1/4 cup of feta and cilantro
  • 1/2 cup of green onions and red pepper
  • 1 ripe avocado

First, make the bean dip if you haven’t already. Such a great recipe.

Next, set the oven to 350 degrees on bake. While it’s warming up crumble the feta, and chop the cilantro, green onions and red pepper. Then neatly slice the avocado.

Egg Tostada: 3ten.ca

Place the 4 corn tortillas on a rack and bake for 5-9 minutes, until they’re toasty and crips, but not burnt.

Top with the bean dip and then mix together the feta, cilantro, green onion, and red pepper. Place neatly on half of the corn tortilla.

Egg Tostada: 3ten.ca

Get out a skillet and fry 4 eggs, sunny side up. I use grape seed oil since it has a high smoking point. Also, you can use a ring mold to cut your eggs or just to rustic and leave them.

Egg Tostada: 3ten.ca

Top the corn tortilla with an egg and you’re done!

These are so good and pretty easy to make, you just need to be sure you’re guests are ready to eat.
