Very nice. Hang around for a while.   mjb.
I'm seriously considering just getting a couple packs of corned beef and throwing them in the crock pot for tomorrow morning's meal in the park. I could also boil some potatoes and throw them in to rewarm in the morning.  Hmm...   mjb.
And I bet you might have some fresh baked bread of the proper variety as well.
