RED ROBIN – YUUMMMM

As you may or may not know, your Scouts have been practicing cooking all this month. Hopefully they have been offering to show off their skills at home? Have they offered to cook breakfast on Saturday morning or even a dinner or two? I would HIGHLY recommend you ask them to do it.

Even though they might have looked at cooking somewhat grudgingly in the past, I can assure you that almost EVERY boy I have encountered in the troop, has enjoyed the experience when it came their turn to cook. And it didn’t even matter WHAT they were cooking. Having to take responsibility for feeding other people, and showing those same people that they can do the job and do it well, is something that all young boys relish (whether or not they admit this is another matter).

Another GREAT thing about cooking, especially on campouts, is simply the fellowship and bonding that goes on between the boys ( Ok, they probably enjoy making a mess too!!) But there really is nothing like hanging out with people you like being with and performing a common task that everyone else will benefit from.

If you haven’t asked your Scout to do this already, pick a day and ask him to plan a meal and cook it with him. You’ll be surprised how eagerly he’ll want to help, and how much fun you have doing it with him – OR consider asking him to help with the upcoming Thanksgiving meal. I’ll bet he’ll be glad to join you.

We were really lucky this past Monday when we had a friend of a friend , who also happens to be a manager at Red Robin, come in to talk to the Scouts about food preparation and safety and even brought a few samples to show the boys how Red Robin makes such a tasty burger. They even learned the special Red Robin “Wrap”. Thanks Katie!!

FINALLY:

The next Scout meeting (in the PMC) on November 22nd will be the final one involving cooking and it will be our Troop Feast. Each patrol has a meal they need to prepare for all of their members and a few extras. They can each invite one extra person to enjoy their handiwork. Lets see if they can get one “Non” Scout to come join us!

 Next up –

Eagle Cave is fast approaching on January 28th. Mark your calendars now, cause you wont want to miss it! (Look at the blog post from last year,)
