Johnna replied to me with:
<<< Think more like Boy Scout omelets... or Boy Scout campfire
cooking. Don't think Sunday brunch at the best restaurant in town.
Think in the woods with 12 year olds. To them it's an omelet.

Okay. I think it was several messages after the one I replied to  
where the "Boy Scout" adjective appeared in connection with these  
"omelettes". In 9 years in the Boy Scouts, 12 if you include Cub  
Scouts, though, I don't ever remember cooking anything in plastic  
bags in water. In foil packs, but not plastic bags. We always cooked  
scrambled eggs and bacon in a skillet over the fire or on a few times  
on sticks.  Of course I can also remember picking spilled bacon out  
of the embers/off of logs and putting it back in the skillet for  
further cooking. :-) I didn't do many omelets, and they didn't always  
turn out that well, until after discussions on this list and some  
hands-on teaching at Pennsic by Phlip.
