"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Cook Dinner for Seven

The project:
Cook dinner for seven at camp.

About half an hour? (We're camping. Who keeps track?)

Why bother?When we camp, Dad and I usually coordinate our menus. This trip, an aunt and uncle were also along. While we weren't able to get super coordinated with them ahead of time, our meal included plenty to feed the whole troop.

Worth it?
It's just such a pleasant, social thing to share a meal. Coordinating the table was a bit of a stressor for me since our tiny table fits about 4, and I hadn't really thought that far ahead! But Dad pulled a table out of nowhere, and everyone contributed something to the meal, the table setting or the conversation.
