S'mores on a Stick

It's summertime!  That means sun, fun, and s'mores!  We were invited to a "Very Merry Unbrithday" party this week, and needed to bring a fancy treat to share.  Little Guy loves s'mores, but they're not exactly a fancy - or tidy type of treat for boys and girls who are dressed their best.  I came across a picture of s'mores  on a stick and thought, "Perfect!"

The recipe is pretty self explanatory, but for those of you who like a step by step, here you go:

You'll need:

chocolate chips
graham crackers
marshmallows
lollipop sticks
a graham cracker masher (we used Little Guy's brute strength, but you'll have to settle for your own elbow grease or a food processor)
parchment paper
baking cups (optional)
Melt chocolate.

Dip your sticks into the melted chocolate and then insert into marshmallows. This will help keep the sticks stuck in the marshmallows.

Now, you can either dip your marshmallows into the melted chocolate to coat, or use a spatula to spread the chocolate (I found the second option to be much easier - my marshmallows kept getting stuck in the chocolate when I tried the dip method).

Finish up by dipping the chocolate covered marshmallows into the graham cracker crumbs and placing on parchment paper to harden.

We placed our S.O.S.'s on festive baking cups before traying them up for the party.

P.S. The kiddos gobbled them up at the tea party!  Score!

This is My Work


I just finished reading Gap Creek by Robert Morgan.  I'd read it before, years ago, and something compelled me to find it and read it again.
The tagline is "The Story of a Marriage," but it's much more than that.  It's a story of struggle, of coming of age, of hardships, of loss, and of life.  When I came upon the scene where the main character goes into labor, I thought, "Here it is.  This is what I was meant to find by rereading this book."

This is my work, I thought.  This is the work only I can do.  This is work meant for me from the beginning of time.  And this is work leading through me in an endless chain of people all the way to the end of time.  Other women have done their work down the course of the years, and now it's my turn .  There's nothing to do but take hold of the pain and wrestle with it.  It was not a choice to give in.

Not only in labor, but as a mother, as a wife, and as a woman this applies to me.

To all of us.

We are all here to do our work.

It may not always be pleasant - at times even painful, but it is ours, nonetheless and our only choice is to take hold of it.

I've found that much more often than not, the reward overshadows the struggle.



Weekending


 
 
This weekend (the first weekend of summer vacation for us) was filled with play. Filled with relaxation and with nature.  Filled with a ten dollar styrofoam airplane that has brought much joy to our little family.   
This weekend was filled with love.  

*How was your weekend?
