s'mores...

 I love s'mores... I especially love getting my marshmallows good and black... so the inside is oozing with all that oooy-gooy-marshmallow-goo! Ever since I was a kid, I liked just getting it good & black... watching it catch on fire... hear it sizzle... then having the delight of blowing it out.... gotta love a well toasted marshmallow!!! I always thought it strange when my sister would patiently toast her marshmallow... it was always lightly toasted... never burnt... the light tan of the marshmallow was always picture perfect.... beautiful in fact.... but by the time she had finished one... I was already working on another... to this day... I remember her patience and the beauty of her result.

Well, now that it's Rainee's turn to learn the fine art of making s'mores... she takes after her mommy.... black as black and be... leaving no space untouched.... that's my girl!!! And although she doesn't eat all that she makes... she loves this delightful little treat whenever we have the fire going. It's become a family winter favorite.

This photo is Rainee with her big brother, Austin....sitting by the fire making none other than... s'mores! We had just finished eating Thanksgiving dinner and we were all lazing with our very full tummies by the fire... when Rainee decides she wants to make s'more... and although we were all quite full... we went for it! Rainee & Austin were sitting by the fire making their marshmallows... I love watching them interact... this college student and his little sister...whenever we're all together, I always make sure to get a photo of them together.... so of this was the perfect opportunity to do so with all the s'more making doing on... I love this photo... and although you don't see their faces... it is one of my favorite photos of them together!!! This was such a great moment.... oh and if you're wondering how Austin likes his marshmallows?...?...? perfectly lightly toasted... or... burnt & oooy-gooy???? It would be... burnt & oooy-gooy!!!

What about you??? What kind of marshmallows maker are you... perfectly lightly toasted... or... burnt & oooy-gooy????
