Building a Non-Camping Campfire

This is a task very few have attempted and accomplished and I happen to be one of those people.In order to do such a thing we first need to examine our environment.Let’s start here,we have a gas stove but no gas so it can’t be used.Next we check our oil tank in the basement-shit it’s empty so no hot water.OK let.s take a look at the laundry area and what do we find,nothing,no washer,no dryer so no clothes washing.The only functioning usefull item is a microwave.So now desire,motivation,creativity creeps into your being,you can feel gallons of blood racing to your loins,we are off and running to the great outdoors to start building

First we clean out the grill which has nothing in it of any value.Then we go into the woods and gather up little pieces of wood,then a little bit bigger pieces,and bigger and bigger until we have what a splendid supply of fuel for our campfire.Next we crumple up some paper,tear up pieces of cardboard,and place them carefully into the grill.On top of this go the pieces of wood we have gathered,small ones first and proceed to the biggest pieces.One match if you are careful will start the show as the flames slowly gain intensity and give off heat.Now we are ready.Install the cooking surface,put on chicken legs and green bell peppers and watch them sizzle.As an appitizer take english muffins and put them next to the chicken and cook them to a golden brown.They will be the first off the grill so spread some grape jelly on them and eat them while the other food continues to cook.Just about ready now so enjoy your chicken and peppers!I did,that was my supper today.Try it it’s cool!Love and inspiration to all.
