I love you S'more...

Today a yummy smell took me on a stroll down memory lane.Funny how that happens out of the blue. I was remembering how obsessed my kids were with S'Mores. When Travis was in high school he would make them almost every night. We bought skewers and he would roast his marshmallow over the gas flame on our stove....add it to the graham cracker layered with chocolate,enjoy and repeat.He was on such a kick with that dessert for months!
That Christmas I bought him the cutest ornament that was a S'more snowman and wrote on the bottom "Just when you think we couldn't love you more..we love you S'more"

Maybe when we see them this weekend I will pack up the stuff and have a good ole fashioned S'more party! I love to almost burn my marshmallow and remove that yummy crusty layer, then roast it again and get it really gooey. I first learned how to make them when I was in Girl Scouts where I also learned how to make a "sit upon" and a "slip knot" Somehow those things never got revisited like that yummy S'more did.

You're right, s'mores are the greatest! They bring back wonderful memories of fun around the campfire. Have you ever tried banana boats? We hadn't until this year at Newport. Take a banana and split it down the middle lengthwise, then fill it with marshmallows, chocolate chips, nuts, caramel, cherries, whatever you like. Then wrap it up in tin foil and put it back on the fire for a few minutes. Fabulous! You can make them at home in the oven too, then there is no sand involved (my preferred method!)

Mmmmm! My mouth is watering just reading about them. I love to burn my marshmallows, catch them on fire, blow out the flames, eat off the crusty burnt outter layer, then put the melty middle in the s'more. Yummy. We all need s'more dessert in our lives.
