S'mores with the family...

Hey friends. Still busy working on this month's Papertrey projects. Thought I would share a fun evening with you we had a while back. S'mores with the family. Jordan and I packed up a vintage picnic basket......
.....full of S'mores ingredients. Walmart had all three items displayed together. Clever marketing. We sure dumped everything into our cart.
Oh yes. Come to mama. I have to admit, I like to toast my own marshmallows though. Slow and easy so that the entire marshmallow is gooey inside. Then toast the outside so it's all brown and a little bit crispy. Yummo!
We gathered around my folks' porch with our family and a few friends. Dad got his fire pit. He had it all ready by the time we got there.
And the S'mores vanished just like a perfect sunset.
Good times. Great memories. Have you made S'mores lately????? And have you tried my S'mores Puffs? Oh my. Come to mama again. You must try these. And don't forget...you can click on my recipe label at the end of this post and see all my recipes I've posted on the blog. I think I need to add some more, don't you? I'll try to work on that....

Hope you have a sticky sweet day, friends! I think I'll head to an auction today....which means show and tell this week for you guys. Stay tuned!

Thank you ,Michelle for always so generously sharing your creations and yummy recipes with your blog readers! We love you for it! (I have started keeping a 2 liter Fresca and Cranberry Juice Cocktail in my pantry as well as limes in the fridge for your awesome and refreshing drink recipe!)

What a fun post, Michelle! Since going gluten free we can't have the graham crackers anymore, so our new favorite is to toast marshmallows (over a candle, usually!!) and sandwich them between 2 layers of chcoclate. Works for me!! :-)

Oh, and btw, I like mine soft and gooey inside and burned beyond recognition outside. I can't wait long enough for the pretty brown color. I just light them on fire one side at a time! LOL!!

Thanks for the explanation of what S'mores are. Sometimes things can get alittle lost in translation. Certainly looks like an interesting treat. Looking forward to your PTI contributions -always fantastic.

OOOH! I need to try Smores Puffs! YUM! Thanks for sharing! Have you seen the new HUGE JUMBO marshmallows yet? I saw them at Walmart the other day - they are almost as big as my fist!
