How to make flatbread?

I was going through recipes to make flatbread on my outdoor rocket stove when I realized that many of you have recipes unique to your own countries that might be easy and simple to make. If you have any recipes you want to share, I would be very grateful. I have spent today planting and freezing for winter. Now I want to cook. Any help is appreciated. I do store many different types of grains and grind them as I use them so I'm optimistic that I can use some of your ideas. Thank you. Shirl

Breast feeding

Katrina, I don't know a lot about Solar but do know a fair amount about passive solar/building to make spaces retain heat and cool. I also know a fair amount about food storage and organic gardening.

I agree with your concerns about breast feeding. My own son almost died at 5 months from infant botulism...a toxin that got into his system and destroyed every muscle until he could rebuild them all. Had I not been breast feeding, he would have died because the breast milk helped his immune system function long enough to see a problem and get help. That was 25 years ago but we are still part of a huge study on botulism and they see a correlation between sudden infant death (unexplained infant deaths) and botulism.

Let me know how I can help....maybe with your questions and my ability to get information, we can help each other. What are these women using to cook on and is that what is causing the fires? Could they cook outdoors on a rocket stove or with a solar oven?

Sending love and peace,
