Like many others in North America at the moment we’re in the midst of a drought and in the countryside this also means fire bans. We’ve had a fire ban in our area for at least a couple of weeks and after a brief, punishing downpour (the wrong kind for vegetable gardens) the other day, we’re back into the status quo: long, hot days with no rain.
Not to be cheated out of a campfire, we recently used our little Trangia stove for roasting marshmallows on our back deck and making s’mores. The boys thought this was pretty swell.
I’m missing this boy, who is due back from a Scouting jamboree early next week.
We could not find graham crackers anywhere when this whim took us, so we used a sort of digestive biscuit instead. Nobody complained!
