Today's theme is Death By Chocolate. Actually, that would be today's dessert. Traditions help make this job special. One of the LeConte Crew traditions is to sit down every Sunday and have a "family meal" together. It is our time to take a breather and enjoy our family time. It makes me laugh to watch the crew as they look over the menu for Sunday lunch. I hear them say "ooo.....death by chocolate", "oh man, that is going to be so good", "I love Sunday lunch", those are just a few of the comments I heard this morning. I quickly learned that if there was a certain type of food I was craving, I had better learn to cook it. Chris and I have attended cooking school in almost every country we have visited. If we want pizza, we have to a make it. If we want Thai, we have to make it. Indian, Mexian, Cajun, Cambodian, are just a few of the cook books you will find in my arsenal. It will be different when we get off the mountain and plug in the ice cream maker instead of hand churning it. It might not taste as good, though.
Today is a great day to be heading up the mountain. The high yesterday was 67º with a low of 50º. It is sunny and warm on the north side of the mountain. It is going to be a good day to take a stroll and work off dessert.
