Dessert by fire...
Last night we had some friends over and after supper we had what I have dubbed, a "S'more gas bord!"
There was more than your regulation graham crackers, Hershey bars and marshmallows...(though they made a delicious appearance!) there were shortbread cookies and Almond Joy bars and Ritz crackers and other little chocolates with gooey caramel centers and more. Marshmallows were carefully and lovingly toasted over the open flames them smooshed happily between more yum with the sweet melted chocolate.
They tasted like summer and sticky joy on our tongues.
During the many cold Maine days, a fire in the wood stove keeps us comfortable with its soul-satisfying warmth. During warm weather, dancing flames in the fire ring smudge the bugs away, perfumes the air with its unmistakeable fragrance, and is a brilliant sign of celebration. Also a dandy place to create the signature dessert that embodies the sticky joys of summer.
