This weekend was intense. And in tents. (Sorry, I had to)
Three teachers and a bunch of parents took about 35 sixth graders camping at Mt. Lassen and it was exhausting but so much fun. I hadn’t camped since 2008 so it was really nice to sleep outside again under beautiful jeffrey pines.
We were only gone 36 hours but we packed a lot into that time, and the highlight was a hike to Bumpass Hell, where there are pots of boiling mud. The entire place reeks of sulfur and it was hot and shade-less, but so cool to see.
I made these cookies to take along on the trip and was grateful to have them in the car, on the trail, and around the campfire (yeah, I kinda ate too many cookies this weekend). It’s a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe, but uses coconut butter (NOT coconut oil!), sweetened shredded coconut, and milk chocolate chips.
