All's aflame in my kitchen!

Camping with the scouts 
Oct. 2, 2012 1:49 pm 
What a weekend that was!!  The sea scouts hooked up with the boy scouts for quite the get together! We took the boys out on the boats and even though we were only able to get 3 boats in the water (we took 5) and it took way to long to get them out on the water, all in all it was quite a success!!  Because my sea scouts are all girls we of course made sure to camp in a different site than the boys.  especially with all of them being between the ages of 10 and 14, the same as my girls.   After a long day of sailing we went to the boys camp and ate a great dinner of fresh fruit and Mexican food.  Those boy scouts sure are hooked up with the gear!! My mouth was watering not only from their food but their kitchen set up.  The funniest part is when the boys were trying to get their campfire started, even with lighter fluid and matches they could not get any flames.  My daughter (a sea scout) walked over and within 1 min got a roaring fire going!   Not only were they bested by a Sea Scout, but a girl too!! The boys were quite impressed.  All the girls got to exchange digits with some of the boys, there was much flirting going on, it was quite cute to watch. after we headed back to our camps by the boats, the girls all crashed into oblivion.  I was not far behind them, I'm just glad our camp was two miles from the boy scouts or I would not have been able to get any sleep.  The next morning at dawn i was up and cooking breakfast! Still highly envious of the Boys Scouts cooking gear, I brought out my own and made pancakes, eggs and bacon. Then went back out on the water, this is when the real sailing began! It was a great time, even with all of our initial difficulties with the boats.
Oh, and the BBQ'd oreo's, next time I think ill try something other than skewers, maybe tongs, as most of them fell into the fire.

About Me
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook and bake. I think my most favorite thing to bake is bread. All kinds. This is usually a winter event, summers here get to be 110* and I can usually raise my bread outside. However there is nothing like raising bread by the fireplace.
My cooking tragedies
I was trying to make this Thai dish one night, I started out fine, (at this time I was living in a small apartment with a 2 burner stove), As i kept adding the ingredients (was meant to serve 4 so it said) I had to keep moving everything into bigger and bigger pots. Soon I had this bubbling mess of peanut-butter and chicken spilling over the sides of my biggest pot running down the stove onto the floor. My little apt began to smell like burning peanut butter and garlic. I eventually gave up as I ran out of kitchen and pots in which to cook this gooey peanut buttery mess. It tasted awful and I and my apt smelled for days.
