I was (almost) as if I went 11 years back in time last weekend as I went camping with my friends. You see, the last time we all went camping it was the summer before I went away to collage. For me at least, this trip included a lot less drinking and a lot more exercise (not necessarily on purpose), reading and the addition of some new friends/twins/honorary sisters.
As you would assume, the S'more making process was the most exciting part of the whole weekend. This was a little bit challenging due to the glutenous nature of graham crackers. My first attempt at G-free s'mores used pecan Nut Thins in place of the graham crackers and it worked pretty well.
These however are a bit smaller than your usual graham cracker and it allowed me to only use 2 Hershey's chocolate squares instead of the preferred 4 - but I survived.
On the second night of S'more making things got a little wild. I forwent the Hershey's all together and the Nut Thins as well and went for a giant marshmallow (Thanks Amanda!) and 1/3 Snickers on a skewer. YES! This was it!
|Sorry for the crappy photo quality - I think I was too high on life at this moment to care.|
The Snickers didn't just melt like I thought it would - it actually started to caramelize the chocolate on the outside. YES. This was IT.
All in all it was a great weekend.
I got to live it up in my ultra personal tiny tent. Special Thanks to Jamie and Liam for helping me put it up.
|Yeah, that is a duck blanket lining my floor.|
And I got to display my latest String-Of-Things in the food shelter.
NOTE: All of this sugar consumption was OK since earlier in the day Jamie and I were mislead by an incredibly deceptive trail sign that led to us (and Pixel) getting a great workout. If you are ever in Brookville, Indiana and a crummy wooden sign promises you a beach for a mere 1.5 mile hike - don't believe it.
