Many years ago, when I was a second grader, during our study of dinosaurs, we were all given the assignment to bring in an ingredient to make Dinosaur Stew.
I remember this clearly, and remember thinking how good the stew was.
So this month, while my cub scouts were learning about dinosaurs I decided they should have the same experience.
I made the recipe ahead of time at home, since it takes a few hours to cook in the crock pot, but I had my scouts prepare another batch during den meeting. When they were done compiling the ingredients, we enjoyed the prepared stew.
It was highly successful, and I thought you might enjoy it too.
Here's the recipe:
by 2nd grade teacher Dashel Watkins
2 or 3 seaweed roots (chopped carrots)
chopped club moss (chopped celery)
white sand and volcano ashes (salt, pepper and oregano)
1 can red swamp water (tomato soup)
3 stegosaurus eggs (diced potaotes)
ground brontosaurus (hamburger)
Brown the brontosaurus, add all other ingredients, cook in crockpot or stew pot.
I doubled the recipe and ended up with a second batch that the scouts made. We enjoyed it again for dinner the next night.
My cub on the left is on his second bowl here, while Mark was polishing off his stew. I hope your family enjoys it too.
