Life Gives You a Heat Wave.....

......bake cookies!

N.H. Woman Bakes Cookies on Dashboard

Quote:
Blistering heat was just what Sandi Fontaine needed to bake cookies for her co-workers _ on the dash of her Toyota Rav4.

With temperatures soaring Wednesday, Fontaine placed two trays of cookie dough on the dashboard, shut the doors and retreated inside to her air conditioned office.

"My husband wanted me to run some errands this morning," said Fontaine, who works at Baldwin and Clarke Corporate Finance. "I said, 'I can't. I'm baking cookies.'"

Fontaine first tested her dashboard oven three years ago. She said anyone can do it; the only requirement is for the outside temperature to be at least 95 degrees, so it will rise to about 200 degrees in the car. Temperatures in the area reached the mid to upper 90s on Wednesday.

"Mrs. Fields has nothing on Sandi," co-worker Brian Champigny said of the cookie company.

Though Thursday was supposed to be cooler, Fontaine said she'll still enjoy the benefits of her culinary effort.

"When you open the door to that car," she said, "it's like, oh my God. It's a wonderful smell."

awesome! I guess there really is a silver lining to all this ridiculous heat we've been having.

(not that I can really complain because it was always this hot and hotter in Mali...every day)

I read that in the paper this morning

Well if you've never been to NH, there really isn't much else to do there Just kidding about that, in case someone flips out or something..

It's been hot as hell, thankfully it cooled off 20+ degrees yesterday afternoon

That's great! Baking cookies in your car! The article didn't say how they turned out or if they were really edible.

ummmm hello..obviously you have never been cow tipping or forking a neighbors lawn or bleaching someone's pool or a kegger up in a mountain or syran warpping a car....HOW RUDE!!

No seriously I live about ten feet away from NH and there is not much to do. Thankfully I live 15min from the ocean and that keeps me sane!!

You forgot doorbell ditch, flaming bags of poo, saran wrapping toilets, short sheeting beds, soaping windows, egging houses, cyphoning gas from cars, putting chocolate bars in laundromat dryers, adding soap to fountains.....just a few more to add to the list!
