I worked so hard yesterday that today I decided to "play." I have never, before, baked a loaf of bread over a fire, but my son sent me a link to a YouTube video on how to do that, so I had to try it! I also made a wonderful beef stew over the fire. I really love cooking over a fire outdoors. It is so versatile. The bread got a little too done on the outside, but it was still delicious. Next time, I'll hang the Dutch oven not quite so close to the fire. By the way, HERE is the link to that video. I used my own bread recipe, but followed his method for baking.
Here is the bread...
Here is the stew, right before I stirred in the pint of beef chunks. You can see that it is simmering there next to the fire.
It was a wonderful meal and so much fun to cook!
Now, I think I'll do the dishes and then read a book. We are having sweet corn from the garden for supper.
