Mike ~ Desktop Wallpapers ~ Dr. Joe & Denise ~ Cop Hater ~ Michael Phelps ~ S'mores

 Good 50ยบ clear sunny morning.

Breakfast... low fat plain Greek yogurt, pineapple, blueberries, honey, and a hard boiled egg that WOULD NOT peel!!!!

Another exciting day here at the homestead... watering and then cleaned out a bunch of stuff from the carport. More to do, but a good start. Mike came over and moved a bunch of wood and logs from down in front of the barn. Dude was thrilled and as Mike drove back and forth, Dude ran along with him. Then Mike trimmed some trees down by my gate....

The burn pile is growing!!

August 10th
National S'mores Day

The Girl Scouts popularized S'mores long ago (the first published recipe is in the Girl Scouts 1927 handbook), it has been a happy tradition around the campfire. A stick, a marshmallow, a square of chocolate, and two graham crackers get you a delicious chocolate marshmallow sandwich. The heat of the toasted marshmallow melts the chocolate a bit and the melted quality is oh so much tastier than the ingredients in their natural state.
