#Scouts #Cubs #Beavers #Supper
The ingredients were simple enough,
Taters in the embers of some dying beechwood
Corned beef, Some Carrots and a very big onion
Butter for frying, and some stock cubes for flavour
The Metallic billy can protected by the finest washing liquid
as flames licked the sides of the can
As the potatoes softened, the onions went see-through
hiding amongst the beef
and as the bubbles rose bringing the feast together
chef prepared his serving spoons – as it was served in tin mugs
in the other can ? usually tea but not that night
as chocolate buns were served for afters – with hot cocoa.
Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Ventures all headed for bed after Campfire – with Smiles on their faces.
They said “Ban Soap at Camp”….but this rule didn’t apply to the cookware….as the recepticles enjoyed a dip in the bubbliest of alfresco baths and a scrub getting rid of charcoaled washing liquid
