For everyone who says "I'll start doing (whatever they're putting off doing) as soon as I get a (whatever piece of gear/equipment they're using as a reason to not do whatever they're putting off doing)", the excuses have hereby been invalidated. Now I just need to get better at applying this lesson to myself...

 When Kerry hears the phrase, “it can’t be done” she sets forth to prove “it can be done”!

This is apparently a $75 lunch - subsidized  $45 by the event - eaten in a few short minutes before my tempering demo lunch and learn.

 Well it would be hard to complain about the selection that is for certain. 

 

Notice she tried to fool us by posting some pictures twice.

Sounds like San Francisco hotel prices to me. Such an incredibly high cost of living city.

Kerry once again making bath tub meltaway.. She picked up a new New Zealand product. It is coconut oil and avocado oil.  This one was flavored with lemon and turmeric.  Of course, Kerry immediately thought  Meltaway. Back to the room we go. With chocolate left over and milk chocolate donated from FFS, she proceeded.  After mixing, she was forced to use ice water bath in the sink to chill, as she had sold her EZtemper and it was gone. Batch was a tiny bit lumpy, but not bad. Set up overnight at room temp.  She is cutting now to take back to show and give the guy the finished product.
