Makeshift campfire and movie night

Saturday, March 15, 2014
Weekends that Andrew is off are so awesome. The fact that he works every other weekend makes us look forward to and enjoy the weekends he doesn't all the more. Andrew played golf yesterday afternoon with some guys and so Perry and I wound up eating a quick dinner with Ann and Gary and Andrew grabbed something when he got home.

We made up for the haphazardness of dinner with dessert though. There was this recipe I saw on Pinterest last week for "indoor s'mores." Anyone that knows me knows that I love smores. Alot. And the fact that I now know how to make them without a firepit and sticks is a dangerous thing.

It was so easy though and wonderfully yummy. You literally just toss some chocolate chips and marshmallows in a cast iron skillet (ok maybe you arrange the marshmallows in pretty circles if you are like me) and bake it until the marshmallows are toasty. Then you use graham crackers as dippers and voila. I'll put the recipe at the end of this post.

Andrew and I constantly disagree on chocolate. His favorite is white chocolate and my favorite is dark chocolate. I didn't have any white chocolate chips laying around (because I don't like them) so we compromised with a skillet divided down the middle of milk and dark chocolate.

We don't have any little cast iron skillets so we used our regular sized one (that was Andrew's grandmothers) which made way more smores than two people could or should consume. I am thinking this will be making an appearance for dessert next time we host lifegroup.

After dessert we nestled into the living room and watched Wreck It Ralph on DVD. I had not seen the movie before and it was so cute. And now I feel much more informed when Kate talks about Vanellope and glitches.

Indoor S'mores Recipe:
1. Preheat oven to 450
2. In a cast iron skillet, add layer of chocolate chips (white, dark, milk, whatever your fancy)
3. Snip large marshmallows in half and top the chocolate chips with them.
4. Bake in oven 7-9 minutes, or until the marshmallows turn golden brown.
5. Serve with graham crackers for scooping.
