Suburban S’mores

I’m not going to get a vacation this year. No Pinecrest Lake in my summer plans. Even though we bought a new tent, it will not have a chance to leave its box until next year. So I had a bit of a pity party.

I was making homemade graham crackers for my sweet little Cora, who is coming to visit from England.

As I was making them I got to thinking how good they would be in s’mores.

So as soon as they came out of the oven I started in making homemade marshmallows.

And when those were cooling, I went down to the store and bought some Hershey’s Special Dark bars. So that’s how I spent my Sunday, by making by hand the goodies for s’mores.

Of course, we ran into one small problem: no campfire. And we don’t own a fire pit, portable or in-ground. I guess we could have built a fire in the fireplace, but when its 80 degrees in the house, that’s not such a good idea.

So we did what any good suburban camper would do, we fired up the 6-burner BlueStar range, got out our skewers, turned on the overhead fan and roasted some of those marshmallows!

MMMM, good…..
