This is my cooking station at Long Lake, where we camped for the weekend. It is a comfortable way to cook, sitting down, and swiveling around to reach stove, cupboards, pantry and cooler. The cutting board serves as my counter, and food-handling gloves keep my hands clean.
The day was coming to a close, with just a few more hours of sunshine. Once the sun sets on the eastern Washington prairie the temperature drops considerably, falling to 32 degrees at night.
Hearty fare throughout the weekend: Fried soba noodle stir-fry; pineapple pancakes; chorizo sausage, eggs, fried polenta and stir-fried vegetables; fruit, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Making morning coffee at 5:30 a.m - everything had a layer of frost.
