toasty

A cool, but comfortable breeze came through at night. It was good sleeping weather this evening, but we were not ready for bed yet. Presently, a crackling campfire warmed our shins and faces. Mmmm... toasty. We had extra chairs set up, and every one was filled as friends enjoyed each others' company.

.

A controversy broke out about how to properly roast a marshmallow. One liked it slow and easy... golden brown all over the outside with a gooey center.

.

But another simply thrust it into the flames and immediately charred the entire surface... and liked it that way.

.

How do you like 'em?

I don't like 'em. But. I love to watch the grandsons toast them. The last time they were over and we had a nice fire cooking, we didn't have any marshmallows, but we did have some Easter peeps, and so they toasted them.

Looked horrible to see these small animals been roasted (not really), but the grandsons said they were really good.

They get too hot and then I get my fingers burnt. But I could get used to them.
But I won't be going camping for a long time....

Guess what, Mr. Dave. I had one just like that.

Well said, nAncY!!

That's funny, Sandman. I'll have to try roasting beeps some time. At least it's less cleanup than microwave peep wars!

So now I have this funny image in my head Shammy, of a person holding the marshmallow in their bare hands, trying to roast the marshmallow. Half the fun is trying to determine when it's the right temp for consumption. Since I was born and raised in Chicago, I really enjoy camping as a diversion from daily life, but I won't try to convince you that you need to go camping.

You are your mother's child, Mrrr! Your treatment of marshmallows is barbaric.

There were a few people who joined us, but didn't eat anything. Mommanator, I wonder if they also need to watch their blood sugar.
