Yesterday I posted that our pre-lit tree had a couple of strings of lights go out and we had to buy a couple of short strings to take their place. AD thinks this is the last year for this particular tree but I just hate having to buy another one. Maybe if there are a bunch left over after Christmas and I can get one on the cheap then it won't be so bad.
Anyhow, I kind of got sidetracked from doing any decorating. I've been meaning to do a post about marshmallows for awhile now and I started playing with the ones I had in the pantry.
Mini marshmallows are great for hot chocolate or to top off a sweet potato casserole.
Regular sized marshmallows are great for roasting and making Smores. They also come in handy to disguise dog pills so the dog in question will take their medicine - unless of course you have a dog like our Smoke who can smell medicine a mile away and will turn his nose up at anything trying to harbor it.
Then there are the ginormous Giant Roasters that Campfire brand marshmallows are putting out. Have you seen them in the stores? If you toast them just right they get soft all the way to the middle - and the middle is a long way in on these puppies.
There seems to be an abundance of "flavored" marshmallows on the market now - chocolate, strawberry, caramel and these French Vanilla ones. Now maybe it's just me but other than the chocolate ones, I can't tell that any of them taste any different than regular marshmallows.
So this is what I did yesterday - well, not the whole day - but I sure had fun creating snowmen from the marshmallows. I like playing with my food.
