Bonfire with Gourmet S'mores


Italian Beef Sandwiches

One of my favorite spring/summer/fall things to do is to have a bonfire. On a nice cool evening, a cozy fire and S'MORES!!

I am a bit of a pyro so it's no surprise I like a bonfire and the same goes for S'mores since I like sweet treats.

I came across a S'mores gourmet menu and now I definitely need to have a bonfire soon.

I am having a bit of a hard time deciding which to try first. I think a sampler platter of each sounds quite amazing. A gourmet S'mores smorgasbord sounds like a great plan to me! Sarah are you in?

Sarah and I made a trip to the greenhouses so we could start our planting fun. We checked out Holter's and Carol's. Gardening and flower beds/pots are one of my summer highlights.

Both of these greenhouses are beyond amazing and very helpful. Holter's and Carol's had so much to choose from. They were a slice of paradise in this crazy world. I definitely recommend a visit to check them out; you won't be disappointed!

I'm sure once we get the items we bought planted there will be a few more trips to see if we can do a little more damage.

Italian Beef Sandwiches


1 2.5 pound boneless beef chuck pot roast, trimmed of fat

1 teaspoon garlic pepper seasoning

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 14.5 ounce can beef broth

1 0.5 ounce envelope Italian dry salad dressing mix

2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning, crushed

1 12 ounce jar pepperoncini salad peppers, drained and stems removed

8 hoagie buns or kaiser rolls, split and toasted

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


If necessary, cut meat to fit into a 3-1/2 or 4-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle meat with garlic pepper seasoning; rub in with your fingers. In a 4-quart Dutch oven heat oil over medium heat. Cook meat in hot oil until browned on all sides.

Place meat in a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. In a medium bowl whisk together broth, salad dressing mix, and Italian seasoning. Pour over meat in cooker. Top with peppers.

Cover and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours or on high for 5 to 6 hours. Transfer meat to a cutting board. Shred meat using two forks. Pour cooking liquid through a strainer, reserving peppers. Skim fat from cooking liquid. Return beef and peppers to slow cooker. Add enough of the liquid to moisten meat.

To serve, use a slotted spoon to spoon shredded meat and peppers into buns; sprinkle with cheese.

Joke of the Week

A woman was out golfing one day when she hit her ball into the woods. She went into the woods to look for it and found a frog in a trap. The frog said to her, "If you release me from this trap, I will grant you 3 wishes."

The woman freed the frog.

The frog said, "Thank you, but I failed to mention that there was a condition to your wishes that whatever you wish for, your husband will get 10 times more or better!"

The woman said, "That would be okay."

For her first wish, she wanted to be the most beautiful woman in the world.

The frog warned her, "You do realize that this wish will also make your husband the most handsome man in the world, an Adonis, that women will flock to."

The woman replied, "That will be okay because I will be the most beautiful woman and he will only have eyes for me." So, KAZAM she's the most beautiful woman in the world!

For her second wish, she wanted to be the richest woman in the world. The frog said, "That will make your husband the richest man in the world and he will be ten times richer than you."

The woman said, "That will be okay because what's mine is his and what's his is mine."

So, KAZAM she's the richest woman in the world!

The frog then inquired about her third wish, and she answered. "I'd like a mild heart attack."

Moral of the story: Women are clever. Don't mess with them!

Attention female readers: This is the end of the joke for you. Stop here and continue feeling good!

Male readers: Please keep reading.

The man had a heart attack ten times milder than his wife!!!

Moral of the story: Women are really dumb but think they're really smart!

Let them continue to think that way and just enjoy the show!

PS: If you are a woman and are still reading this; it only goes to show that women never listen!!!
