National S'mores Day

I was just about ready to go to work this morning when somebody pointed out to me that it's National S'mores Day. A day to celebrate the mashing of marshmallow and chocolate, and if you feel like it a couple of graham wafers too. Obviously my place of employment will be closed today to honor this most important of holidays, so I'm glad that I didn't bother to get dressed yet (Ummm...sorry. Try and wipe that visual from your mind.)

There may be some proportion problems here...

S'mores have been one of my kids favorite treats for as long as I can remember, which makes no sense at all considering they're generally considered a campfire treat, and we're not well known for our camping abilities.

Look at us roughing it! (Ummm...Ignore the restaurant behind us...)

We're not going to let a little "outdoors" come between us and our favorite dessert though, so we've started finding ways to simplify the process. Didn't think you could simplify S'mores did you? Well you can. For starters, did you know that they have perfectly packaged kits, just ready for you to work with?

Or you could go for a step simpler...

That might be taking it a little too far though. A lot of the fun of S'mores is roasting the marshmallow yourself. So what I want is to roast my own marshmallow, without any of the outdoor experience. That can be done right?

Bingo! Now we've got it. "Waiter...Bring us a plate of S'mores every 15 minutes until somebody passes out. Then bring one every 10 minutes."

Enjoy your National S'mores Day, and feel free to tell your boss that I said you didn't have to go in to work today.

This post is a part of Photo Friday at Delicious Baby and Friday Daydreamin at R We There Yet Mom. If you didn't get here from one of those sites, you should really go check them out. There's people there who make their S'mores outside. They probably even know how to make a campfire and everything! Showoffs.
