Ya know LP, that fireplace is going to be mighty messy when you "light" all that chocolate cordwood. Heeheehee.

Hey, anyone bringing waterskis? And did anyone invite Goodweed? He's the resident campfire aficionado.

Okay, okay...I will explain so that you will all not be afraid to each the peppermint patties!

In the winter I got an incredible deal from the local "factory" where they produce some very fine chocolate. I got five 5 pound baking bars of Bittersweet (2), Semisweet (2), Milk and White chocolate. I needed a safe cool place to keep it.

We have a fireplace in our townhouse that we are not allowed (by law) to use as a fireplace. It is pristine inside and blocked off. I wrapped my chocolate in several layers of food grade plastic, stuck it in a garbage bag, put it in an airtight plastic container in another garbage bag and put it in the fireplace. I checked it often and it was safe and sound.

After two weddings, it is getting depleted, but still great - while the stuff in my cupboard is looking a little sad from the heat.

Do you still want those peppermints Uncle B?

I will shoot off an engraved invitation to Goodweed right away.

As for water skis, sorry, not my thing. But I was thinking I might do some kayaking!
