It was scorching hot today. Hotter than it has been all summer long! Just as I think fall is coming, summer comes back?! I escaped the heat tonight by going to see The Time Traveler’s Wife with Renee. It was good but sad…in any case, I had a good time with a new friend! 🙂
On the weekend, we were invited to a BBQ dinner and hot tub party at Shawn’s mom’s house. The food was delicious and the highlights were Shawn’s discovery of a melon baller and S’Mores!
He was balling like a madman! Here is the end product with some cantaloupes thrown in.
Yum! It was confirmed that melons taste better in ball shapes.
I didn’t get pictures of S’Mores, but this is how it went: Slather some peanut butter on the chocolate side of a milk chocolate digestive cookie then place a giant marshmallow on top. Broil it in the oven for a few minutes until the top is golden brown and crispy, then stack another digestive cookie with peanut butter on the chocolate side. Give it a gentle squish then broil for few more minutes when the marshmallow oozing out in the middle looks somewhat golden and crispy. Remove from the oven and enjoy after letting it cool.
My eyes are about to close but I need to get some more Eclipse reading done! It’s such a teen melodrama but a current guilty pleasure. I’ve started a list of books to read that are of a different genre after this book…and Breaking Dawn. 😛
