A sweet memory. When I was growing up, my grandfather Sam had us convinced that there was a chocolate tree growing in the metal cabinet that was his kitchen's pantry. I remember examining the shelves with my brother and cousin to see if we could find the branches. That's because Grandpa always brought us Hershey bars.
GB, the chest freezer you speak of had a similar enchantment. Whenever we would visit your parents, your mom would go down to the basement and pull magic out of that chest... little squares of lemon deliciousness or chocolatey goodness, magical cookie bars or other undoubtedly sinful pleasures. Uncle G was convinced that your mother single handedly supported the sugar producers of the world. If we were really lucky, we would show up not long after some occasion that had her making multiple desserts that got stowed in the freezer and had to be eaten.
Oh my. I need a piece of chocolate.
