STORIES of TROOP 175

Camping and Events

Food for Thought

Many people think that young boys have NO idea about cooking; much less how to plan a meal, put a recipe together, and then to actually cook! Well that could not be farther from the truth for the Scouts of Troop 175 in Niles ( I’m certain their Moms, girlfriends and future wives will be glad to know this!)

You see, at this past weeks ‘Troop Feast’ they showed everyone what they’ve learned over the last few years about cooking – and they did an awesome job as well!

.

Yes that is actually a shot of 2 – count em 2 – of the elusive High School Scouts! Yes they are still very active in the troop as they should be. However, I wonder what brought them out in such numbers this wonderful evening??   hhhhhmmmmmmmmmmm……maybe a bunch of other, younger scouts making FOOD??!!!

The amazing thing is that they choose to cook some really difficult items. It wasn’t just boiling water and cooking eggs, but their culinary skills ran the gamut from eggs and bacon to a pumpkin pie! I was waiting for Beef Wellington and a Souffle, but their choices were just as good!

That looks like a like some seriously specialized cooking going on there (ok, that is Ramen noodles one of them is making, but the other ones is baking a CAKE!!!).

They certainly enjoyed eating it all:

I also think this was one of our larger turnouts of late and they had lots of fun:

They even cleaned up the room spotless!!!

 I must say that their parents seem to have taught them well!!! (Nah, it must be the Scouting program!!)

I have asked them to make a meal for their families and report back. I’m sure they will not disappoint!!
