This week gluten-free graham crackers were on sale. Yesterday I had an idea: why not introduce the boys to the childhood fun known as S’mores?
Now, if you aren’t familiar with a S’more, it’s usually made at campfires. You roast some marshmallows, and then grab two graham crackers. You make a sandwich out of the marshmallows, a chunk of chocolate, and the graham crackers.
We didn’t have a campfire. We used a microwave, mini chocolate chips from Enjoy Life, mini marshmallows, and our on-sale graham crackers. It became a practice in dexterity as the boys tried to get the mini chips and marshmallows to stay on top. Then the big question was, would Mommy explode the marshmallows in the microwave, instead of just melt them? (No!)
However, the ultimate question was, would Dr. J actually EAT them? Why, you may ask?
They are new.
They are sticky. He does not like sticky things.
He likes to eat one thing at a time, not mixed.
Here you can see him trying to figure out how to eat it without getting messy:
Here you can see Meatball enjoying his first S’more:
And, here you can see two brothers enjoying a childhood rite of passage of sorts:
The verdict? Dr. J said, “They’re a bit too sweet.”
That’s ok! He ATE it! He ate it WITHOUT crying or arguing!
That’s an accomplishment in my book!
And yes, do you see that box in the background behind Meatball’s chair? Read about my love-hate relationship with boxes here!
