Last summer at camp the boy scouts cocked out of doors. We had to cook stew, cocoa,pudding,and pork. I cooked the cocoa gnc pudding and my buddy cooked the pork and stew. When we were about through we sat down and ate our dinners. The cocoa was still cooking so we ate it later. When we were ready to drink it, it was still very hot and I burned my tongue,so I gave the rest away. When you cook out of doors it is nec- -essnry to put the fire out and cover the ashes before leaving. Any left over food a long or buried. Robert Fett,8A.
