Breakfast in Bed (in an indirect way)

Postby KBS » Tue May 05, 2009 2:03 pm

Folks are always talking about keeping toasty warm while camping. My son's scoutmaster learnt me a neat trick. Take along an extra dutch oven and some potatoes. (That's potatoes with an "e" for any Republicans keeping track.) While your fire is dancing merrily about, keeping you company, wrap some potatoes in foil (whole, unpealed) and put them in the dutch oven. Put the dutch oven in the fire (I think that part is obvious). In a couple of hours, just about bedtime, take the potatoes to bed with you. Keeps you nice and warm, and guess what? You'll have some hash browns or fried tater cubes for breakfast. Don't forget the ketchup.

Your walking on a slippery slope, there. First it's potatoes, and then rutabagas, and before, who knows what vegetables you'll be sleeping with.

Rick Santorim tried to warn us, but some just wouldn't listen. :no:

CD ;) :D

Well, I see your point if one is vegetably confused, but I am most definitely attracted only to potatoes.

P.S. Now if we can just figure out how to keep beer cold in the summer and use it for airconditioning at the same time? :thinking:
Why hasn't anyone found a dead bigfoot? When was the last time you found a dead deer, bear, coyote, fox, squirrel, etc. that died in the woods.........Hmmm.

Yeah, I feel the same way about onions. I sometimes buy them when I already have some at home. Perhaps we should seek help.

In the old days they used to sleep with bricks.
The impossable just takes longer & cost more.

I bet you got this straight out of "Little Women". The book, not the movie. They put a hot potato in their muff to keep the hands warm on the way to school, and then had lunch later. In bed, they used a warmed brick -- maybe cuz they didn't need potatoes twice a day. :)
