how do you eat? put it in your mouth and chew, silly.  The kitchen is one of my favorite rooms in life.  the island kitchen is no exception.  We stock the pantry with food from the local grocer. Mostly dry goods that don’t need to be refrigerated.  Peanut butter and honey is a good meal.  Things are chips, pretzels, and granola, we are naturalists aren’t we.  it’s a lot like camping food, refrigeration is hard so there is not a lot of cooking but when we do cook we go all out.

Jess and her mom supplied the grill and solar oven which reflects the sun’s heat over and over to reach temps of 300 degrees.  water is brought in from the visitor center each day because the lake water is gross.

one fun challenge was the curves of the walls making it hard to hang things.  Jess came up with this cool condiment hanger and this is my dish cradle. All this together makes our killer island kitchen.
