There is one thing we control outside. We cannot control the weather, nor guarantee our friends will have fun outside. The food is where we have ultimate dominion. At the last Thursday night lecture, and following Saturday overnight camp out we showcased some of our favorite taste bud recipes.
We demonstrated the strengths and limitations of cooking over wood, liquid fuel, and isobutane. Each heat source has its unique abilities and ideal cooking situations. The foods that we sampled were fresh local fish – fish tacos, egg omelet salsa wraps, baked apples and banana foster, spicy chicken with rice and baked corn bread, and s’mores. The dehydrated foods were spicy noodles, ice-cream, and key lime pie. With all of this eating we needed to stay well hydrated. And we did by making espresso, tea, a hot toddy, and some hot coco.
