Cookin' in the Woods

Sunday May 1st Olivia had a friend sleep over and the weather was blah so my original plan to go on a little hike almost didn't happen. Finally late in the afternoon I figured what the hell. The weather sucked but they were okay with getting wet. 
I packed some cups, hot chocolate packets and a bag of Herb Butter Rice. 


I decided to go back to the Moraine Trail off Brick Kiln Rd because I love this woodsy section and the tree cover afforded me some cover last time I was out here in snow and rain. 
At the first major intersection there is a large tree and a good area that was dry so while I set up and boiled some water Ava and Lilly played with sticks while Liv and Emma continued down to the Pond. 
Once the rice was boiling for a couple minutes I placed that pot in a small thermal bag I had brought for it to continue cooking while I boiled a second pit and made them all some hot chocolate.
I was pretty surprised at how fast it cooked and to be honest if it was just me  I would probably need a smaller pot which would be even faster. 
Before I knew it I saw it was 7pm so we hiked back to our car and headed home. Fun time for our first try.
