I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day. By the title of today’s post I think you know that my heart was filled with happiness.
After a Nordstrom trip with my sister and Billy (it is a miracle that I walked out of that place without spending a dime especially considering the white ceramic Michael Kors watch was on sale) we started on dinner.
Okay, more like they started on dinner while we…..
got to work ‘testing’ the appetizer that I made. Recipe to come later today, it was heavenly. And no, it had nothing to do with the twinkies on the counter. Those are the leftovers from the trip.
Um, it snowed here yesterday, that is why I am wearing a coat. Luckily it warmed up in time for us to get our barbeque on.
We used our water cooker (cooked for six hours) to make the steaks and then seared them on the grill. I think I have reached my iron quota for the next 3 months.
I truly believe that homemade fries are better than restaurant ones. We used rosemary, garlic and olive oil to season them.
Corn on the cob season deserves a holiday of its own. It needs to be celebrated especially when cooked on the bbq.
You can guess what happened next, but first my dream pillow. Can you imagine waking up on a ginormous marshmallow pillow every morning? Billy said it wouldn’t last 4 minutes in my hands and then I would be left without a pillow but he knows deep down that I would just steal his.
Oh yes we did.
I think mine deserves a 10 out of 10. It takes years of s’mores making, candy consuming and simple physics and equations to make the perfect s’more.
My BIL needs some practice.
Never again will I use the ‘normal’ size marshmallow for s’mores. Get the ginormous ones that are as big as the graham cracker and you won’t regret it. Next up……peanut butter cup on that sucker. Just because we are best friends I won’t copyright this idea of mine so that you to can enjoy the best thing you will ever eat.

Any s’mores tricks/recipes for the perfect s’more? What other things do you roast?
-At girls camp when I was a teenager, my favorite thing to roast was Starbursts. I dare you to try it.
Soft, hard, fluffy or flat pillow?
-We have down pillows that are soft and they are almost as good to me as a marshmallow pillow. During college I slept without a pillow because for a semester at BYU Hawaii I didn’t have one and so I just got used to it.
Favorite sides at a BBQ?
-Corn on the cob, watermelon, grilled pineapple and vinegar cole-slaw….not the creamy kind.
