Promises Fulfilled

Posted on May 31, 2010. Filed under: Mommy Moments, The Parenting Thing |

I promised the kids last week that we would have smores sometime during the weekend.  I really thought we’d either be bbqing or have a bonfire.  Unfortunately, the best laid plans….

Friday night – we weree going to grill hamburgers.  But, the hamburger wasn’t thawed so I thought I’d defrost it.  Bad idea if you want to make hamburger patties.  The hamburger doesn’t stick together after you defrost it because it’s basically cooked.  We ordered pizza.  And it was too windy for a bonfire. 

Sat night – after driving home from my parents, it started to rain – hard.  No bonfire.

Sun night – I suppose we could have grilled out, but I hadn’t thawed any hamburgers again 🙂  So, I improvised.  I got out a couple of skewers and roasted the marshmallows over the stove.  Truth be told, they come out a beautiful even brown – way better than a campfire.  I then microwaved the completed smore for 5 seconds to get perfectly puffy and melted chocolate.  ChickenFried had one happy, chocolatey smile.

Punk, watching the production, proclaimed, “Mom, you don’t have to do all that for me.  I’ll just eat the chocolate.”
