Food Day Friday: s'mores in the livingroom

Thanks to the camping episodes of Olivia and Ni Hao Kai-Lan, Daughter has been talking about all things camping more and more often (except for her EXTREME need to sleep only in her bed, I think she'd have a great time)

Husband and I got the kids a 4 person tent for Christmas and it's currently in our back yard. The kids LOVE it. Husband keeps telling the kids that he's going to build a campfire in our yard. And I keep telling everyone, "no, we are not building a fire in our yard. You can use the grill if you want a campfire." kill joy mom. That's me.

Last Friday, Husband and Daughter were talking about camping so I gathered some supplies and called Daughter into the living room. (poor Son, he'd been asleep for an hour by this time. He misses all the late night fun.)

Our roaring campfire.
(or two pumpkin spiced candles I got on clearance after Thanksgiving)

our s'mores ingredients. Nutella, marshmallows and graham crackers. Plus, kabob sticks (the nutella was a perfect substitute for chocolate bar!)

Daughter loved roasting and blowing her marshmallow. But what she loved best was shoving "raw" marshmallows in her mouth!
I can't tell you how many times I said, "when the mallows flaming, you stick it on the chocolate and cover it with the other end." Ah, How to Make a s'more 101. Thanks, The Sandlot. I still love you.

Daughter took some pictures with her camera too. I'll post her perspective tomorrow.

Fun! :) Lauren has been on a camping "kick" as well. I blame Bubble Guppies. Followed closely by Olivia and Kai Lan. Thanks, Nick Jr. Ha! Anyway, I hadn't thought of doing s'mores inside. And the nutella is a great idea!! Lauren would LOVE this!!

oh, I forgot about the Bubble Guppies episode. We've been talking a lot about that flashlight stealing Moon Bear. (sigh)
