365 Project – 137: Marshmallows: rare, medium-rare, or well-done? (May 15, 2012)

Shutter Speed: 1/40, Aperture: F/16, ISO: 400

We were rushing out the door for last weekend’s last minute camping trip and, ugh…I forgot the s’mores! Fortunately, our camping friends were prepared with that oh so essential camping staple so there was no meltdown at that “s’more trigger moment”; you know, when the sun goes down, the temps cool a bit, the campfire is cracking, and those sticks the kids carved to a perfect point are ready for roasting some hot dogs and marshmallows.  It’s such a challenge for the young kids to perfectly toast those marshmallows. Inevitably someone cries because theirs is engulfed in flames and blackened or someone else drops theirs in the sand so they have to start all—over—a—gain! 😦 At 6 years old, my daughter, for the first time, did NOT complain about her burned marshmallow and she did NOT ask anyone to roast her the perfectly browned marshmallow. She smushed that burned, gooey mallow in between her graham crackers, messily devoured her s’more, then announced that she actually likes them burned. Awww…our daughter is growing up. LOL  For me, I like mine “just right”, browned all the way around, not charred, medium-rare…like I take my steaks.   I probably would pout over a burned marshmallow and want to start all—over—a—gain!  😉

      Nora appears to have some sort of chocolate allergy, to maybe milk chocolate? Not sure yet but, we substituted the chocolate with peanut butter and that was soooo yummy!


The good, the bad, the ugly...I can take it. Talk at me! :)
