More Smoke ~ Thunder ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Monopoly ~ Unusual Animal Friends ~ Sliced Steak on Teriyaki Noodles ~ Bridey Murphy ~ S'mores

Good 63ºsmokey smokey morning.

Yesterday smokey all day. Heated to 100º. A little after 10pm there was a super quick thunder storm that moved through... high winds, hard rain (could have been hail... loud enough!), and thunder. Not enough rain to wet anything.

Breakfast yesterday was a Schwans breakfast pizza...

Scrambled eggs, bacon, white gravy, cheddar and mozzarella cheese in a crispy deep dish crust, and since it was rice pudding day I had some of that too...

Happy Throw Back Thursday...

My friend Jennifer called last night to tell me her cat, Bridey Murphy had died. So so sad. Bridey was only about 10 or 11 years old.

You will be missed Bridey! Sweet cat!!

National S'mores Day

S'mores are a favorite campsite treat for young and old kids. If you're at a campfire, chances are, there's S'mores. Sticky and gooey, and loaded with sugar and carbs, S'mores are nothing short of delicious. Who was the first person to create S'mores? We don't know. But, we're all sure glad they did!
National S'mores Day celebrates this tasty summer treat. It's appropriately observed in August...campfire prime time. Don't limit your consumption of S'mores to the campfire. They are popular with kids year round, and can be baked in the oven, or microwave.

The origin of S'mores dates back to the 1920's. It's believed the recipe was created by the Campfire Girls. Girl Scouts soon discovered it, and found it to be chocolaty delicious.  Before long, S'mores became a campfire staple for everyone. S'more folklore suggests that S'mores got its name right by the campfire. After eating one, young kids chanted "gimme some more!"
