Cub Scout Camping

Thursday, March 19, 2009


B10 and Hubby are going camping for two nights - it's for the older Cub Scouts, their first introduction to what will be Boy Scout Camping. They'll be gone Friday-Sunday, while CW and GO and I will have a special weekend, just the three of us.

I put B10 in charge of all the food for the weekend (2 breakfasts, 1 lunch, 1 dinner, snacks). He planned the menu, made a grocery shopping list, did all the grocery shopping himself - then prepared the food.

For breakfast he boiled eggs, premade toast and selected bacon for his meat. He also made sure to have hot chocolate and Hubby's favorite oatmeal.

For lunch he selected hot dogs, chips and salsa and raw carrots.

For dinner, he created silver turtles. This involved cutting the veggies, slicing the raw meat and adding the seasonings to the packets that would cook on the fire.

He also packed his own bag - and learned a valuable lesson in needing jackets, even when Spring looks like it's just around the corner!
