Steve and Cathy had us up for an outside dinner Friday night 09/04/20 of chili and corn bread that she cooked over an open fire.
Though it was nice sitting outside by the fire for awhile, it didn't take long after the sun began to drop over the tree line that we all got bundled up, and moved closer to the fire.
We all took turns feeding the fire as the huge cast iron pot hanging from a tripod bubbled away. I hadn't done anything like this since I was a Boy Scout! Loved it!
As we ate dinner, Sue put the pan of apple crisp she had baked on the ledge of the fire pit to let it heat up. Man, was that good too! What a feast we had — maybe not quite a primitive as they did it in the 16th and 17th centuries, but close enough.
And who would have thought that you could make corn bread over an open fire like that: I always thought that corn bread came from the specialty bread aisle at the store. Amazing.....
