It was finally time for a bonfire night and S'MORES!

I may be a bit of a pyro. (Don't ask Kyle his opinion on that statement!) I really like the look of flames and then you add chocolate and it is a double win for me.

The weather has been a bit on the cooler side lately with just a bit of rain. (Way too much rain in my opinion!) So we thought it was the perfect time to have a bonfire. The kids agreed it was a good idea too.

It is quite amazing to have everyone in agreement at one time! Needless to say, it was the perfect night for a few flames.

The fire was lit and S'mores' making was underway. Needless to say, I didn't get past the marshmallows this time. I'm not sure why, but I just wanted roasted marshmallows and lots of them. I was to the point of being full on marshmallows and having a sugar rush while watching flames. A perfect evening for me. Family, food and flames!

Ariah had found a new "S'more" to try. It looked quite yummy. This S'more consisted of a sugar cone loaded up with chocolate and marshmallows. Next you wrap it in tinfoil and roast it.

Ariah had a bit of an issue with the first one. She "maybe" lost it in the fire. Brandon to the rescue and he made one for her. Once the mission was accomplished it sure did look good!

I will definitely save room to try a sugar cone S'more during our next bonfire.

Sarah received a snap of our fire and shortly we had visitors. They enjoy bonfires too!

We might need to wait a bit since the weather has decided to get a bit warm for a bit. We all know that can change in a quick hurry in this area!

Shipwreck Dinner


1 pound lean ground beef

1 (7.25 ounce) package macaroni and cheese mix

1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

1 cup milk

1 cup frozen peas

1 cup frozen corn

1 teaspoon seasoned salt or to taste

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided


Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes.

Stir pasta and cheese mixture from the macaroni and cheese package into the beef. Add tomatoes, milk, peas, and corn to the beef mixture; stir. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, place a cover on the skillet and cook at a simmer until the noodles are tender, about 12 minutes.

Season the dish with seasoned salt. Stir about half of the Cheddar cheese into dish to melt. Top with remaining cheese.

Joke of the Week

A blonde woman goes to a bank in New York before going on vacation and asks for a loan of $5,000.

The banker asks, "Okay, miss, is there anything you would like to use as collateral?"

The woman says, "Yes, of course. I'll use my Rolls Royce."

The banker, stunned, asks, "A $250,000 Rolls Royce? Really?"

The woman is absolutely positive. She hands over the keys, as the bankers and loan officers mock her. They check her credentials, make sure she is the title owner. Everything checks out. They park it for two weeks in the underground car park.

When she comes back, she pays off the $5,000 loan as well as the $15.41 interest.

The loan officer says, "Miss, we are very appreciative of your business with us, but I have one question. We looked you up and found out that you are a multi-millionaire. Why would you want to borrow $5,000?" She replies, "Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only $15.41?"
