Just wait until next year, when I have two of my grandkids visiting. We will be making our outdoor fort, complete with snow chairs, snow beds, and a snow dining table from which we will sip hot cocoa from our warm mugs. There is nothing quite like eating or drinking hot food from a snow table. It's something that everyone should get to experience.
You should have seen some of the kooky ways we heated food while ice fishing, as a teen with my best buds. Sometimes it got very primitive, but always tasted great, and helped warm us up.
My biggest meal ever came after a day long snowmobile safari with a club my parents belonged to. I was eighteen at the time, and weighed less than 100 lbs. 3 plates of beans coupled with 19 hot dogs were eaten in one sitting, with a big mug of hot cocoa of course.
A day in the cold, working, sure builds up your teenage appetite.
