"Scouting forces you to deal with your discomfort. It trains you to do the thing you don't want to do. And over time, I realized it does something else, too. It trains you to like it.

Cunningham Falls Campout (Oct 2010 - Photo Set 2)

Chicken Tortilla Dinner in a Dutch Oven.

Notice how everyone gave it a BIG THUMBS UP, except for that strange Scout in the center. By the way, who is he?

And, the Scouts made a new friend later on that evening.
No, he did not end up in next morning's breakfast.

Cunningham Falls State Park - Oct 2010 Campout

Sunday Morning Breakfast - Hashbrown Omlet
(or at least that is what I call it).

Everyone liked it. A couple of lessons learned from cooking this meal:

1. More coals are needed than the recipe calls from. Probably about 35 or so.

2. Cook the hashbrowns and onions first.

3. We used "brown and serve sausages" and pre-cooked bacon. A HUGE time saver.

4. More seasoning is needed - pepper and salt. Hot sauce is an option.

5. Feeds 8 to 10 normal people or 7-8 hungry Scouts.
