Project 52: S’mores!

Date night rolled around again on Thursday.  Nathan’s turn!  He tossed around the idea of going to see Alice, but he ended up deciding that we would watch the Canucks’ worst game ever (how could we have known?) while eating s’mores!

Mmmmmm, the aptly named s’mores… the crunch, the squishy oozy marshmallow layer and the just-starting-to-melt chocolate layer.. They’re pretty much the best thing ever!  Although we didn’t have a campfire in our living room, we made due using the toaster oven.  After a few experiments with over-melted chocolate, we decided that the best method was to broil a marshmallow on top of one graham cracker until beautifully golden.  Top with chocolate followed by the second graham cracker.  Devour.

And of course, with hockey goes beer.  But I wasn’t in much of a beer mood, so I indulged in some apple and berry cider from a local farm – Merridale Estate Cidery.  Pretty, isn’t it?  It’s absolutely delicious, but maybe a tad too sweet when paired with 3 or 4 s’mores! ugh.  I’m always over-indulging.  One day I’ll learn that a little bit can go a long way!

Check out others’ date nights over at Simply Modern Mom.  Tiffany is the creative woman who we have to thank for getting this fabulous date night project started.


About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.

    Yummy Smores……When we do them at home without a fire we use Keebler Fudge Shoppe Cookies (you get the graham cracker and chocolate already together) then you just add marshmallows.
    Sometimes the fun is in trial and error though.

    I have only just learnt about s’mores since reading blogs – why don’t they make it onto America films more often – I can’t believe I have lived this long without them. Can’t wait until BBQ season so will copy your toaster idea!

    Sounds like a good date (nothing better than cider!) xo
