My First Culinary Award!

July 20, 2008

Scout Camp provided many new experiences this past week, even for me! On Friday, the last day of camp, there was a Dutch Oven Cobbler Cook Off, something that they do each year. I have never cooked in a Dutch Oven...how hard could it be ...right?? Before we went to camp on Wednesday we stopped and got all the necessary items for the competition. Remember, I have never cooked in a Dutch Oven, neither has The Farmer, or anyone else that was with us. We heard through the grapevine that the secret ingredient was cinnamon and so we made sure to take some. Our cobbler was Dublan Peach Cobbler with lots of butter (I think that is why we won) and a little cinnamon. The other troops that we competed against were so kind to give us little tips and help us through the cook off. It was alot of fun! We placed first in the Dutch Oven Cobbler Cook Off! And for me that made scout camp worth while:)
Here is "Team Dublan". The Farmer and Little Rooster. Scout Camp was a great success...we left with tons of merit badges, a car load of dirty boys, and some really tired leaders!
