The temperature is hovering around freezing here today, with wind gusting from 20 km/hr to 50 km/hr. There are snow flurries and ice pellets in our forecast all day too. The little Adventure Kiddos and I have colds, and one of them is toilet training to boot, so we're sticking close to home today. After they ate their lunch, we headed outside to the backyard for some fresh air, hoping that the wet stuff would hold off. While they played, I made myself some lunch using my East German Kocher, 775ml Seagull pot with improvised lid, an old broken BIC lighter, and a windscreen made from a cut-up aluminum foil roasting pan from the dollar store. I used some old Coghlans fuel tablets that have been hiding in my son's backpack for goodness knows how long. They worked just fine to boil water for simple ramen. Today was beef flavour with horseradish added for heat more flavour. I love this little stove.
