Iowa’s weird Winter weather continued this week with above normal temperatures. It was capped off by a high Friday afternoon of 75 degrees. It’s confusing my plants.
My friends didn’t seem to mind. Many took the opportunity to get outside to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Some even had backyard fires.
There’s nothing quite like sitting around a campfire with good friends and a cold beverage. They are the perfect ingredients for a great time and great conversations.
The other thing I love about campfires is that sooner or later you get around to making s’mores. S’mores are awesome!
It’s hard to beat the gooey, marshmallow, chocolate, graham cracker combination.
If you’re a s’mores fan like me maybe next time you can step up your game by trying some new s’mores recipe ideas. Some of these I’ve tried. Others just sound good to me and are worth trying once.
