Dutch Oven Cooking
This week, we had a skill session on cooking with Dutch ovens. After tent inspections were finished (around 7:30), we fell in for the opening flag ceremony, put on by the Dragons. Some Cub Scouts were visiting, and introduced themselves to the troop. Then we began the skill session. Ryan Z. and David D. taught us how to cook a few types of cobbler in a Dutch oven. Delicious! Then Mr. Zink took us outside to demonstrate putting coals on the Dutch ovens. Then we went inside for one of those classic, crazy games of dodgeball. We had a fairly long game, and then fell in and circled up. Mr. Smotherman announced that four Scouts had passed boards of review, and then Mr. Todd gave his Scoutmaster Minute. Afterward, Mrs. Haught gave out eagerly awaited popcorn prizes. For once, though, when the meeting was over, it just wasn’t quite over. Everyone had to get some of that delicious apple, cherry, and peach cobbler. Ask just about anyone, and they’ll say it was amazing. Yum!
