Fri PM /
• Friday Night
• Appropriate snacks include breakfast bars, granola bars, power bars, GORP, etc.
• Use quick & easy meals when time is short (i.e., climbing/hiking/skiing/sledding that day, packing up to return home).
Suggestions include cold cereal & milk, oatmeal, etc.
• Regular meals can be bacon & eggs, egg/cheese/muffin sandwiches, pancakes (instant/pourable).
• Hot cocoa is always good.
• EASY is best – instant soup (e.g., Ramen), deli or PB&J sandwiches, powdered drink mix, etc.
• Additional high-energy snacks like GORP help you stay warm in cold weather.
• Good patrol meals are usually single-item entrees that require cooperation/teamwork – stew, chili, American chop suey,
spaghetti, stir-fry, etc.
• Precooked / parboiled meat saves time and mess if conditions permit.
• Open fire cooking can be hot dogs or burgers, Dutch oven (e.g., stew, chili, cobbler), or foil-pouch meals (ground beef or
precooked sausage with potatoes, onions, carrots, etc.)
• Dehydrated “backpacking” meals are very convenient when needed, but somewhat expensive.
• Remember to bring this form with you on the trip.
• You are responsible for obtaining all needed food items for the trip.
• We have a Troop 1 charge set up at Collelas Market. Your parent may sign.
• If you shop at another store, all receipts must be turned in to the Treasurer for reimbursement.
• Only items on the approved menu may be purchased with Troop funds. Stay within the stated budget.
• Remember to bring ICE (from home or purchased) as needed.
• Please try to include any donated food items or condiments from home to help defray the cost.
• Consider sharing condiments and spices with other patrols.
• Scouts may bring their own snacks; however, soda is not allowed.
• Avoid single serving items like juice boxes and individual cereal boxes – they are too expensive and environmentally unsound.
Instead, scouts should agree on items that can be shared – powdered drinks, regular-size boxed cereal, etc.
