It was a good weekend to end my first week back at school.
I went on a leader training weekend to Scoutshire Woods,one of the dearest places to my heart in this world. I have been a Girl Scout leader for 10 years & it was the single best thing I have ever done for my daughter.We have shared stories & experiences in a way that would not have happened otherwise. I have a relationship with her friends that I treasure & it helps that I know who she runs with now that she is older. Not just KNOW, but I have slept in a tent with!
Anyway, all the leaders went off this weekend
I learned some amazing things! I can cook an omelett in a plastic bag, a cake in a cardboard box, a muffin in an orange and a chicken with a bucket & a broom handle!!
chicken...rub your whole raw chicken with spices of your chosing.
get a dowel and drive it into the ground with a mallet. it should be about a foot sticking up.
put your chicken on the end of your dowel, put a bucket over the chicken, put charcoal on heavy duty foil on ground around dowel
done in 45 minutes
tender, smokey & good...also a whole lot of fun to see the chicken with its little legs sticking out!
clean out orange peel & eat orange
mix muffin mix as package directs
pour into orange
put orange top on put on coals & cook until mix oozes from under orange top
test with straw for doneness
nothing to clean up! great for kids! they can each make their own! you put 2 eggs in a plastic FREEZER bag, add your cheese, butter, onions, peppers, whatever anyone wants to put in their omelett, then mash it to break the yolks, each person writes their name on it, place it in a pot of boiling water, watch for desired degree of doneness...TAADAA! It even comes out looking a perfect omelett shape!
