1 Tbsp Cooking Oil
1 Cookie Sheet
A hot frickin city

If you are in Europe, you can go to any of the cities marked yellow below:


Always check your cooking temperature first:


Lightly grease your cookie sheet with oil, and place it on a level surface outside around noon. NOTE: You do NOT need a grill. I did place mine next to one, but only to make him feel impotent:
