Cooking is fun, but baking is my favorite. I use a pot oven to bake over the fire. It’s basically just a very large pot with a lid. Fill the pot with about an inch deep layer of sand. Place a couple of empty tuna cans in the sand to prop up any pan you are baking with, place the pot over the fire, and your oven is ready! The fire heats up the sand and the sand heats everything in the pot evenly just like an oven. This makes baking breads and cookies and all those other sweet things I love so much possible!
There is still much to learn and I’ll soon have a full month to do it during my village living phase of training. Thank you very much for your prayers about the village living placement. I’m excited to head out in about a week. More to come on my village living assignment in later posts!
