Five Famous Holiday Fireplaces

Five Famous Holiday Fireplaces

It’s December which means the holiday season is officially in full swing here at Aqua Quip. We think that nothing says “Happy Holidays” quite like a roaring Regency Fireplace and Hollywood has historically agreed! Check out some famous holiday Fireplaces from your favorite festive films and be amazed at the coziness a fireplace, insert, and stove provides.

 

WHEN YOU’VE GOT THE WHOLE PLACE TO YOURSELF

Macaulay Culkin’s character Kevin Mccallister might have been a bit surprised, at first, to find himself home alone on Christmas Eve, but he very quickly took advantage of the solitude and his lovely hearth, pictured above, played no small part in the festivities. There’s something to be said about a little holiday alone time, especially when it’s paired with a roaring Regency Fireplace, but hopefully your Christmas doesn’t end up being crashed by two brazen burglars like Kevin’s was.

 

PROOF THAT FIREPLACES ARE MAGICAL

Okay, maybe Harry Potter isn’t necessarily a series of “Holiday” films and books, but they totally had some Christmas scenes and the Great Hall’s fireplace is nothing to cast Aqua Eructo at! Thankfully in the real world you don’t have to worry about trolls, hippogriffs, and He Who Must Not Be Named and even better a Regency Fireplace from Aqua Quip is WAY more magical!

 

WARNING, FIREPLACES MAY CAUSE HEART GROWTH OF 300%

Here at Aqua Quip, we don’t condone hiding in your Regency Fireplace, unless of course your intent is to ruin Christmas for Whoville, or get severe burns. If you consider yourself a pretty grumpy person, especially around the holidays, you might consider warming up your personality with a new fireplace from Aqua Quip! It worked for the Grinch who can now often be found lounging in front of a roaring fire, happy that the Holidays are upon us.

 

AVOID BEING FROZEN THIS WINTER

Parents who’ve seen Frozen 100s of times have likely grown tired of the verbose snowman Olaf. Thankfully, Regency Fireplaces are perfectly designed to combat uncanny creatures made of snow and ice! Pictured above is Olaf’s last moments before succumbing to the warm glow of what must be a Regency Heater-Rated fireplace.

 

FACE YOUR FAMILY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

While we may not be able to replicate the in-your-face look that Tim Allen’s above hearth has, a Regency Fireplace from Aqua Quip has plenty of options to make a statement to your friends and family this holiday season. With dozens of color, face, and fill options to choose from, make Aqua Quip your only stop this Winter for your heating needs.

 

GMG’s Pellet Baked Blackberry Crisp

GMG’s Pellet Baked Blackberry Crisp

In honor of National BBQ Month we wanted to

take an opportunity to share with some wise words of wisdom from our friends at Green Mountain Grills.

Did you know, that “you can cook anything in your pellet grill that you can cook in your oven”?

Here is GMG’s take on a Seattle Summer Classic!

Pellet Baked Blackberry Crisp

cobbler

Topping: Combine 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 teaspoon of baking powder in a small bowl. Beat an egg in a separate bowl. Make a depression in the center of the dry mix and pour the egg into it. Fold gently until the topping mixture is crumbly.

Filling: Mix ¾ cup of sugar and 3 tablespoons of corn starch in a small bowl. Put 6 cups of fresh or frozen blackberries (or boysenberries) in a large bowl and sprinkle with the sugar/corn starch mix. Toss gently

to evenly coat the berries.

Grease a square 8″ or 9″ pan with butter. Put the berries in it and sprinkle the topping over evenly. Melt a stick of butter and drizzle it evenly over the topping.

Bake this at 375° for 45 minutes. I predict that unless you utterly disdain dessert, you will have a second helping of this, especially if you serve it with vanilla ice cream . . .

grill oysters
If you can find large, fat oysters, you can place the oysters directly on the grill grates. It’s best to wear long, sturdy BBQ gloves so you can handle the oysters by hand instead of using tongs, spoons or spatula. However, if the oysters are small and flat, you’ll run the risk of spilling its valuable, flavorful juices as well as the garlic-butter sauce. You can do what I’ve done, which is to place the oysters on a bed of rock salt or rice in a small pan — and then placing the entire pan inside the grill or under a broiler. This steadies the oysters and prevents them from wobbling.

If you are a shuckmeister
Shuck the oysters, spoon a little sauce in each oyster. Place oysters on a very hot, preheated grill, cover and cook for 5-6 minutes or until the edges of oysters curl slightly.

If you can’t shuck
Place the oysters, cup side up on a very hot, preheated grill, cover and cook for 1 minute. The oysters should now be slightly open. Quickly remove the oysters. Hold an oyster with an oven mitt

and use a shucking knife (or a clean screwdriver if you don’t have one) to pry open the oyster. It should easily open. Spoon sauce into each oyster and return oysters to the grill. Cover and grill 4-5 minutes.

Today was the first day at the Seattle

Home Show and the first experience we all had with Swimming for Charity. As explained in an earlier article, BECU, the Seattle Home Show and Aqua Quip teamed up with Habitat for Humanity and with Swim Spas from Hydropool we set up a booth at the Seattle Home Show where anyone could (and still can) sign up to swim for up to 60 minutes at a time. See more about the project here.

The first day was a huge success. Together we managed to raise $4,088 – thanks to the participants, their friends and families and all the generous attendees who all chipped in. This is much more than we anticipated. 6 participants signed up and every swimmer swam the full 60 minutes! What an incredible achievement! This is a hard workout and we want to thank every participant for their contribution and hard work.

We want to share just a few stories from today, hopefully inspiring even more participation for this exciting way of donating time and money to a charitable cause. Danielle, 13 years old and a supreme swimmer had gone out on her own prior to her appointment and gathered pledges for donations that added up to $300! This was on top of the $600 we would contribute on her behalf. Everyone at the show were so amazed at this girls dedication that they chipped in and made sure Danielle’s donation for swimming was rounded up to exactly $1,000.

These two ladies stuck around all day so they could both swim! And it looks like they were so excited about the experience of swimming in a swim spa that they might get one of their own!

2013-02-16 17.36.33

We can’t wait for tomorrow and another day of swimming and donating. There are still slots left to fill – sign up now! Or if you want to donate to the cause you can do so on their website. Remember to note that you are donating to “Swim for Charity”.
