What is ecologics? The new fancy term I just coined.
Doing things that are good for you, your family, your neighborhood, and your planet at large, whether it be in regards to food, health, exercise, or using the resources around us in a smart and environmentally friendly way.
And surprise, surprise, many times it is also beneficial economically too.

Outdoorsy Peach Cobbler
Beware, I have discovered the amazing, multi-purpose dutch oven! You can use it for anything, it will last forever, and you can let it do all the work. Yes this sounds a little like an informercial, but man these things are pretty cool.
During our last bbq, we let our peach cobbler cook in the coals and just as it got dark; dessert was ready! If you want to try it, this is what you'll need:
Peach Cobbler a la dutch oven
- 1 bbq or campfire
- 4 cups of sliced peaches
- 1.5 cups flour
- 2.5 cup milk
- 1.5 cups sugar
- 1 stick butter
Warm your dutch oven by covering it with hot coals. Melt in the butter first then mix in all the other ingredients, stirring well. Add the peaches last so they don't all stick to the bottom.
We just started our barbecue and let our mixture sit on some hot coals, adding more as the evening went on and the burgers were cooking. Once the bbq was free, we transfered the dutch oven directly into the bbq pit and let it cook for a little over an hour.
It does look like our dessert survived a thermonuclear blast, but I promise you it was quite lovely. More to come on the oh-so-great dutch oven, thanks Michaella!
