It's National S'Mores Day!
We're here to celebrate another sweet, sweet Friday. I'm delighted to celebrate National S'Mores Day. So glad one of my favorite treats has it own happy day.
I don't make s'mores very much any more, but growing up it was one of my favorite treats. We had a charcoal grill in our backyard and after the hot dogs and hamburgers were cooked, my mother would bring out Hershey bars, marshmallows and graham crackers. Then the fun would really begin. For anyone unfamiliar with the s'mores, making them was almost as much fun as eating them. I would toast the marshmallow very carefully, trying to achieve an all-around medium brown toasting. That happened rarely and more often the marshmallow was burned or fell off the stick into the charcoal. My hands would be sticky from taking the marshmallow off the stick, but that was part of the fun. The toasted marshmallow was gently put on a graham cracker, topped by a square of a Hershey bar. A graham cracker topped the sweet sandwich and there was a perfect summer moment. Perfect!
My good friends at Hershey's and Walmart sponsored a Bondfire Suite at BlogHer, and was it fun! I loved the experience at last year's BlogHer and couldn't wait to return. It was equal fun this year, though I missed the Mr. Goodbars -- one of my favorite candies -- this year. But that was only a momentary longing and I was very happy with the classic Hershey bar s'more.
The Sweet Suite!
I've so enjoyed remembering summer evenings long ago and I am smiling at the memories. Thanks Hershey's and Walmart for the Bondfire Suite. Is anyone else as big a s'mores fan as I am?
Wishes for a sweet, sweet Saturday!
