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…..

Thank goodness you've got the stove, or whatever would you have done? :-)

Sorry to hear about Pinecrest (or not to hear about Pinecrest, as the case may be). But hey, you've got Cora, and that has got to be some consolation prize.

No Canada for me, either. Instead I get to pack and move. So. Not. Fun.
