Smore Fest 2007

Tonight we had a Smore Fest here at beautiful Martin Creek at Inland Empire Girl's lovely home.

For those of you who have never experienced this lovely tradition, here is what you need.

First, one needs to gather the three main smore ingredients: large, jet puffed marshmallows, graham crackers, and Hershey chocolate bars.

The second essential ingredient is a bed of hot coals to roast the marshmallows on.

And, of course, you need some good roasting sticks to put the marshmallows on so they can be roasted to a perfect golden brown.

Raymond Pert gets some help from Inland Empire Girl in assembling his smore.

Grandma Mary enjoyed her smore.

Kiki Aru and Z2 each had about five or six smores to tide them over. They give Smore Fest 2007 TWO THUMBS UP!!!

Inland Empire Girl's husband JEJ observes the Smorefest, but doesn't partake. His contribution was very important...he made the fire, and produced those perfect marshmallow roasting coals.

When everyone came inside and shared about the yummy smores, Raymond Pert's dog Snug was ready to run outside, grab himself a stick, and make one for himself.

Instead, he just laid down, and listened to Grandma Mary tell him a story before he went to bed.

that's a cute photo of Snug and Grandma Mary! I don't care for marshmallows but I'll eat the chocolate and graham crackers! ;-)

Thanks, Pinehurst. We had a lot of fun.

Janet, you can have this treat in any combination you'd like. My youngest daughter used to just eat the chocolate, but has now graduated to all three ingredients, and loves them.

Toadman and his family sent us a 'parcel' filled with wonderful things, and one was a packet of those honey graham cracker biscuits....... omg they are to die for..... they also send some right proper doodle marshmellows.... but the bestest way to eat the sweet cracker biscuits was spread with marmite before the melted marshmellows.... I thought I had died and gone to heaven....... me bum must of gone up 2 sizes lol
