Its 75 degrees outside and dady still wanted to lite the fireplace. Its so hot in here, but the ambiance surpasses the heat. I'm not complaining one bit. We are having a nice day and about to have xmas dinner. What's on the menu. We are having Kalua pork, corn on the cob stuffing (from the box) and zucchini, potato salad, white rice and that's it. For dessert we will have apple pie and French vanilla ice cream.
