But I think it's unfair that swimming lessons and such carry, the same wieght as cruises, Hawaii, Europe and a tennis court etc.

I that sort of thing just shows how canted towards teenagers this quiz is. I mean, having your own phone line when you're 14? Big deal. When you're 40? Not so much.

I think you shouldn't even have to count swimming lessons. Riding lessons, sure... (which I confess, I did have). But swimming - not so much with the 'spoiled' idea.

I think I would also only count your 'own phone line' if you have an EXTRA one that you don't have to share, or something. Having a phone is pretty much basic functioning in most budgeting schemas. (even though, yes, i know there are people who don't have one)

    Should work wonderfully vegan - the only reason I went with lard over shortening is that neither of us on this trip are supposed to be eating soy, and soy oil was ingredient #1 on the vegetable…

    That looks great. The opposite of what I'm trying to do the next time I make bannock (gluten's fine, dairy isn't) but now I'm inspired.

    The trick is that it requires either an oven or an actual camp fire. We might be able to take it to the singing fire - one can make the packets up in advance, then rotate them through the irons.

    That fire-roasted sweet bannock sounds amazing. Is this a thing we could try at KG?

    I don't know about you, but this is all part of my general scheme to be someone my teenaged self would have thought was cool. Or maybe become Batman. Either is good.
