Had a very nice weekend. While elsewhere in the country Jack Frost is starting to nip at everyone's gardens, here it is forcasted to be 80*f for most of the week. We had a Scout Camporee at one of our kind-of lakes. Being a new group my Sea Scouts hooked
up one of our pretty boats and gave lessons on rigging and tying knots. The girls tired hard to recruit the up and coming boy scouts to join our adventure crew, at present we only have 3 girls and one boy who just got his eagle and wants to go adventuring.
The day was filled with Scottish games and fun. My scouts went up against four scouts who are twice their size in tug of war, they were surprised when the girls almost pulled them down! HA! Never underestimate the strength of a sea scouts! The boy scouts
won at the end however when the girls team had the rope pulled out of their anchors hands. They had a great time!
After the games were done it was time to eat! I pulled out the burners and set up the fires, put a pot on to boil and made some awesome goolosh! It was gobbled up by everyone! even the neighboring scouts came over to have a taste. This is a simple recipe that I've played
with over the last few years. First, I browned up 2lbs of ground turkey meat, 1/2 lbs of sage ground sausage. When that was cooked added 1 can each of kidney beans, corn, diced tomatoes with chile, mushrooms and a pinch (or two)of garlic salt. All combined
with macaroni noodles and a jar of pasta sauce simmered until all flavors combined.
Campers went to bed full and happy, and my scout neighbors walked away with a new recipe to add to their collection. We have our next camporee in april. It will be fun to see if any my goolosh is added to their cookout!
