Wasn't that stuff called "Hobo stew" or something like that? From my
son's Scout days I recall taking some hamburger, cut up potatoes, cut up
carrots and (for the daring) some onion, wrapping it up in several layers
of foil and putting it by the hot coals. By the time dinner came around,
many people were so hungry that they ate theirs a little bit underdone.

What do we know? Would they let us in Girl Scouts? Of course, not. I
think that I'd like one--a smore, not a Girl Scout--with peanut butter,
though. In Boy Scouts, all we had was bacon flambe and lacy eggs, although
the crunchy raw potatoes, onions, and carrots served over greasy raw
hamburger half-baked in a wad of aluminum foil under smoldering coals was
always something to look forward to. What was the name of that dish? Mr.
Food should do a special program on it.
