As this is, after all, a magic snow globe there is also a nice pond for anybody that wants to try skating. There is a nice fire pit (always at the perfect marshmallow melting temp) as well as a cache of milk choc and graham crackers for smore's. Several containers with hot drinks are also available. Just to keep it interesting, once everybody is safely seated, the globe will shake and it will snow.
I hope there is room for goingsledding ? Good idea, Adds Chillie , with all the fixingm, and BBoston Bean Chower , itsserved like Bosten Clam Chower - the shellfish, fo and the real one, and also the l fire is just right for melting , cheese to dip, squares of bread on ssticks too.
I know how to say it, just can 't spell it, also if someone like a tosted sandwitch , there are ssandwithch makers, to make them t over the flames, pizza , pie, and tosted you 'add what you like' .
Or a stone pizza overn? Or fixing for a real case hot dog and a stick or holder on a stick for more then one? Notes I am drawing off many Family , Girl Scout -Stepping StoneCamping , for this , For I For I know how to use one, if needed I can give a good 'how to' use one, if needed later on, my fingers are getting cold, and I have a early morning meeting, and I need to and do a little recalling on that trip, LOL sourly , that was week of fun, glad I learned how to use one before I when t on that trip. ue

I'm sure there is room for sledding.

I've never heard of "Boston Bean Chowder", also never heard of "Boston Clam Chowder". There is "New England style Clam Chowder" which is made with cream - or there is "Rhode Island Clam Chowder" which has a clear broth. This may be something new to me!

I do like a grilled hot dog. Have not had one in ages.

I'll try all of those - once. My latest successsful experimental cooking was meat loaf in a muffin pan - great for individual servings as I live on my own. We won't mention some vegan hamburgers I bought that had the appearance, texture and flavour of cobblestones. They finished up in the worm farm. I'm sure I could make something much more tasty out of quinoa, kumara (sweet potato) and mushrooms.

Good for you and the meatloaf. It is one of the very few main dishes I can actually do fairly well. I make it with hamburg (minced beef?) an egg, a small 8 ounce jar of spaghetti sauce and enough Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix to give it texture. I put it in a loaf pan as there are 2 of us. The stuffing mix comes in a bag and is really just seasoned, dry, small chunks of bread, normally used to stuff either a chicken or turkey.

I have never eaten anything vegan and your description makes me not want to. For some reason whenever I see Vegan I think Vogon from Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy and then I say "Nope, none of that!"

I did have a recipe for Boston Baked Beans that I liked, and it was good for taking to group picnics in a haybox - basically a carton full of crumpled newspaper with the casserole dish full of beans inside to keep warm. Unlike New Zealand baked beans, which are in a tomato sauce the Boston Baked beans used molasses. I don't have the recipe any more so I can't remember what else was in it.

The cobblestone veganburgers were bought in a packet. I do cook vegan sometimes but a lot of the meat-substitute vegan food that you buy is grossly over-processed and I'd rather have my food as near to the garden that produced it as possible.

Probably tofu, Ginny. It's made out of soyabeans, looks like a dense cheese and has very little flavour until it's added in cooking. I'd rather have the mushrooms.

Plops down in a nice cool corner, with Dragons Dawn, & an ice cold soda. It's been a LONG week. Time to chill out.

Good idea. I'll join you with a cold glass of cranberry juice and my latest sewing - a dragon this time. Definitely not a Pern one. When it's done you'll see it on FB.

It's hovering around the 30c mark here and that's just a bit too warm for me. *Grabs some mittens, a toque and a jacket and into the snow globe.* Much better. Hangs a Do Not Disturb sign on the back of a lounge chair, leans back sipping hot choc with Baileys and watches the stars.

I can't get in FB. For those of us that don't have FB, could you show it in here as well?

Perhaps you could ask someone to help you set up a FB account? I cannot show pictures here as I only access this site through my Nook tablet and I am not at all sure how to move pictures around on it or load them from the tablet to this site. I'm afraid FB is the only place I have for sharing pictures.
