my Kaper Chart back when my Scouts were Brownies....now they are Seniors and they have to figure things out for themselves. I wrote this post about Girl Scout camping a while ago...it reminds me that I should write about Boy Scout camping sometime....I have a Boy Scout, too. Boy Scout camping is similar to Girl Scout camping in that there is plenty of opportunity for a "Lord of the Flies" situations, but Boy Scout camp usually involves more axes and knives, which adds a greater degree of parental angst. But it's fun, too! The adult leader Boy Scout magazine has lots of great info and recipes for camping...check it out.
To make an egg on a stick, here is what you do:
- First, since I know you are using Leave No Trace principles as a good Girl Scout should...you are not using an actual stick but a metal marshmallow roaster stick. That's good, because it makes egg on a stick work even better.
- Use older eggs because fresh eggs are hard to peel. Carefully poke a hole in each end with tip of a pocket knife. Stick the skewer straight through the egg longways through the holes.
- Keeping the stick parallel to the ground (if pointed up or down it will slide), roast it over the coals like a marshmallow, rotating it to cook evenly. You can pull the stick out to check for doneness - hard or soft cooked
- When it is done to your liking, carefully remove from the stick (it will be hot) and when it has cooled enough to touch, peel and eat.
