Before I get a bunch of comments about how the saying really goes (especially from all of you who know how I usually butcher sayings), let me explain. During the process of building the water filters and the fuel-efficient stoves, we needed to clean and oil the forms every morning. It was an extremely important task because the oil would keep the concrete from sticking to the form when we removed them. We used vegetable oil. As we became faster and more efficient in our “oiling” task, I made one of my typical saying blunders and thought “cooking with oil” was an appropriate summary of our fast process : )
Flying home late this evening! I will share more photos and fun stories next week!
