Carla, Nels and Allison are very much into Dutch Oven cooking as well. It's a cast iron pot that was used by many of the pioneers. It is put on hot coals and the hot coals are placed on the lid too, it acts as an oven. You can cook all sorts of things in there, breads, tarts, stews, whole chicken. We enjoyed some delicious experiments of Carla's for the upcoming competitions.
While we were there Nels was in recovery from his hip surgery
Carla is also a great quilter, and has a quilting machine which she pre programmes with patterns and it stitches them for her. Marcelo has since set his heart on the idea that I too will become a quilter one day. I don't know when that day will be, but my domestic prowess in the field of sewing has never been developed and has only ever extending to mending buttons and sewing holes. If I had one of those quilting machines though, I may consider it more seriously.
How grateful we are to the Anderson Family, for their hospitality and making us feel like they are family we have always known. We hope they will join us for the up coming family reunion.
