they can. (g)>
I agree with Cheryl. IMHO the Scouts learn more by
doing than just watching. It would be MUCH more
educational for them to help in preparing the meal,
and to taste it. I'm wondering how many troops
actually give cooking lessons?
One of my best memories of being a SM was the weeks it
took my Scouts practicing to flip a pancake without a
spatula to actually learn to do it without losing the
pancake off of the pan and into the dirt. We had some
pretty comical experiences, but every one of them got
pretty good at it. This was a requirement for one of
the local Klondike Derby games, so it was necessary
for them to learn it.
Thanks for bringing back good memories.
