Boy Scouts Finally Rip A Page From Girl Scout Handbook To Make Some Dough

Decades ago, fed up with our scout troop always asking mothers to make baked goods for fundraising, I set up a soft-pretzel-making class in the basement kitchen of the local church that hosted their meetings. Each scout went home with detailed, diagramed recipes, and instructions to make a dozen, wrap each tightly in foil to freeze, and then bring to our famous early morning canoe race Memorial Day weekend. There, they reheated them on barbecues, offered mustard as a side, and made a small fortune among the chilled and appreciative crowds. The boys’ moms were shocked at how well the boys took control of the process, and the boys were proud of their ‘macho’ products, and their mastery of kitchen skills.
