Wife won't let me cook in the fire place. Will yours?

I had to go outside and make me a fireplace in the back.. I did this using cotton string. Spin it and it will spin for a while. This is chickens and Cornish hens. It was a lot of fun. I hope your spouse will let you do this indoors..

      1. This is why I remain unmarried. Not worth the risks.

        1. What's this whole "let" thing? What will your wife do if you cook in the fireplace? Kill you? Die? Inquiring minds want to know. As you can tell, "let" plays NO part in our relationship :)

            I agree that "let" suggests issues, but sometimes, frequently during family holidays, less is more than enough. An intimate dinner afterwards with a steak and who knows what else could be magical. Or not.

              OP is referring to Thanksgiving. At least not that s/he mentioned.

                I realize that OP was referring to Thanksgiving. He has a history of going for the spectacular and (as far as we know) achieving it. Sometimes, with large gatherings, enough is enough. Or not.

                  Ah, I see. I thought s/he was referring to a dinner for a family.

                Depends on whether she'll 'let' him or not. LOL

                We are hosting Thanksgiving, as we always do. I am doing the vast majority of the cooking, starting tomorrow. We have overnight guests for 11 days.

                My husband suggested having people over for a party on Wednesday night. I told him I would divorce him. And I would.

                We are going out Wednesday night.

                  See? That's what "let" means! I'm with you, Janet :)
