I'm not sure how things are elsewhere, but in the USA we like our purchased eggs to look clean.

When an egg is mechanically washed, a protective layer called the cuticle is removed. This makes an egg more susceptible to bacterial invasion. Consequently, it is recommended in this country that eggs be kept in the refrigerator until used.

If we did not wash our eggs until just before we cracked them open, we could keep them un-refrigerated and they would have a longer shelf life.

Ulibelle, whipped cream should not come out of a can. Danimal is trained in the culinary arts, so I'm pretty sure he owns a whisk. Insist that he use it.

Could Suzie be Angela? ;)

Only if Suzie had already figured out that Calvin was armed and dangerous behind that snowman, and Suzie was ready to retaliate with an even bigger pile of snowballs behind a nearby tree.

One of my cousins is an Eagle Scout. He was required to do a community service project. He organized work parties to clear an over-grown trail in the Sierra foothills. He and his team worked many days on this project.

The son of a family friend also was required to do a community service project to become an Eagle Scout. He organized the construction of special playground equipment in a park. The equipment was intended to be used by all children, but it was designed to be especially inclusive for children with special physical needs. The Eagle Scout raised funds to pay a contractor to make sure the structures built were safe, but the Eagle Scout did all the planning and project management himself, and he and a team of helpers did much of the construction work.

It is not easy to become an Eagle Scout these days and I am so impressed with both of these young men and the service they have provided to their communities.

I don't know if there is a girl scout equivalent of Eagle Scout, but I sure hope there is!

Vic, you got me curious about current merit badge requirements, so I googled the cooking badge.

Looks like many things have changed since you were 12, and for the better I would say. A merit badge in cooking now requires more than just cooking on a camping trip. There are requirements for food safety knowledge and there is an emphasis placed on health and nutrition, which is certainly important!

I'm pretty impressed with what scouts have to accomplish these days to get this badge.

Cooking My breakfast over a brick stove outdoors at 6000' in altitude.

Wow! High altitude cooking is tricky stuff. Boiling water isn't the same temperature up there and anything baked in an oven needs some adjustments.

Years ago I made a friend's wedding cake in a cabin at Lake Tahoe (also around 6000 ft. of altitude). The cakes all came out fine, but thank goodness for whipped cream frosting! It hides lots of imperfections, and it tastes good too. What you can't hide with frosting, you can always hide with some strategically placed wrapped bundles of spray-free flowers.

I've made 5 wedding cakes in my life - a practice cake which I fed to my family, a cake for my friend Annemarie and her husband Rob, a cake for my friend Louis and his wife Colleen, a cake for my friend Linde and her husband Bob and a cake for my friend Maryellen and her husband Mario. All four couples are still happily married and they all have beautiful children. (I'm sure all that is because of the cakes...)

Vic, did your merit badge requirements include any regular cooking, or were the requirements only for camp-cooking?

Wiggo, I had the pleasure of visiting your lovely country once. It was an amazing trip! I didn't see any echidnas though.

My mom taught Me, and I have a merit badge in cooking too, those aren't just handed out, one has to earn that.

Awesome! I think that all young people should learn some basic cooking skills.

Vic, what did you have to master in order to earn your merit badge?

Eric and I received this book yesterday as an early holiday present from a family member. It is hilarious! It is a must-have if you are a Star Trek (TOS) fan who likes cats.
