Gett'n The Fire Started ~ S'more, Please!

We do s'mores on Monday nights with the guests. 
And we take every opportunity to be sure everyone learns a thing or two. 
So we use a bow drill.
Nature Boy is having LuLu help him this time.   

Look! Smoke! 

The friction of the cottonwood creates an ember.

The ember goes in the basket of inner bark and dried grass.

They blow. It lights. 
Ok, after a few tries. 
But it works. They did it! 

And we all have s'mores!
Now I want you all to go have yourself a nice camp fire with made with a bow drill. 
I'm sure you can do it! 

Or you can have s'mores the way we do it the rest of the week:
Put one half of a graham cracker on a paper plate.
Put a piece of chocolate on the cracker.
Put a marshmallow on the chocolate. 
Put the plate in the microwave. 
Cook for about 15 seconds.
Top with other half of the Graham cracker. 

And that's how this City Girl makes S'mores!
Your welcome!
