The whole point of a rocket stove is to have a way to cook with very little fuel should you find yourself without power and a regular means of cooking. Of course, I had to try it out, and my little punks were right in the middle of it!
So here is the rocket stove with the fire going!
It only takes a few sticks to make a lot of heat.
Our water is heating up, and we are excited
to cook up some mac n cheese!
Let's hear it for boiling water: Ooooh! Ahhhh!
In goes the macaroni.
(Or "mac-a-moi-ya" as one of my punks used to call it!
Then we drained the macaroni and made the cheese sauce.
I know, the excitement is almost too much!
Believe it or not, they were very excited
that we made lunch outside, on our rocket stove.
Yeah, I'm a cool mom.
Or just take a big ol' bite!
Atleast I know we can live on mac n cheese if necessary!
