One of my favorite story that will be in the next volumn of my cookbook, to be called.... "More Stories from the Cooking School of Hard Knocks !" is the one about dry ice. We used dry ice to cool wedding cakes and other goodies that had to be delivered far away. Then when we got back to the shop we had fun playing with the ice. Empty pots on the stove smoking. I would walk in and, knowing that I had turned off the heat and the pot shoild be empty. My helpers would hide, I would freak and the laughter would start as I realize that I had been joked at. My favorite dry ice story though was when, on a very HOT day in Texas I put a few chips in the half drunk and ever present Diet Coke from the golden arches. I then put it on the hood of my truck, ran into the ladies shoe store next to our shop yellilng - "Hey Y'all... it is so hot out that my Diet Coke is boiling!" Three ladies bolted to see it and I ran out the back door! I thought it was funny !
