For the Love of S’mores

It was a 45 minute wait at 3 p.m. I had to keep the girls entertained some how!

We have a gas fire pit in the backyard and the girls favorite summertime treat (besides popsicles) is s’mores. We either make the traditional version with Graham Crackers, Marshmallows, and Hersey Bars…or we make these:

We made these simple s'mores

Easy s’mores

I am thinking we may need to try something new. Something exciting. Something different. The girls are traditionalist. Me, I need experimentation.

Love Pinterest…

Do you need to try something new this summer? Check out my Pinterest S’mores Love Board.

I am really liking the S’mores Buffet for our next barbeque; and the S’mores Bars (no fire required).

Ooooh, what about smearing the new Mocha Cappuccino spread from Jif on Graham Crackers and smashing a gooey marshmallow in the middle? Just thinking…

Summer Favorite: Cherries

summer fruit

Every year I look forward to summer, not because summer is my favorite season; far from it, it’s my 3rd favorite. Summer means it’s CHERRY SEASON!

Cherries also remind of my childhood. How many hot summer days did my little sister and I climb the cherry tree in our backyard and pluck the sweet fruit from the branches, popping them in our mouths?

Besides, cherries are a “super fruit” that is rich in antioxidants and vitamins. Just the other day I heard on The Doctors that cherries aid in losing weight. One cup is only 87 calories, and 3 grams of fiber. (Who couldn’t use more fiber in their diet?) Eating cherries has been shown to reduce the risk of diabetes and aid in the prevention of  memory loss, and much more.

All that is even more reason to eat up this summer! We buy 2-3 large cartons at Costco a week. Yes, eat that many in the summer!
