Gourmet S'Mores

After watching Chopped, my daughter challenged me with the following four ingredients: Graham Crackers, strawberries, hazelnut wafer cookies and ghost peeps.  Gourmet S’mores was the obvious choice.

 

My nephew is getting married in a few weeks.  I had the privilege of giving the shower for his fiancé. It was fun and memorable.  We used a black and white theme to be classy and and we made the food ourselves.  Thank goodness for Wendy and Patty’s decorating skills and for Ken’s cooking skills (even if he was offended that he wasn’t invited to the all girl shower – sorry Ken)  It was a wonderful day.  My favorite part was the game where we made bridal dresses from TP, paper towels and kleenex.  All teams had something special – bouquets, hats, etc… But the special dress was a reenactment of the 1920’s dress of Craig’s great great grandmother. Unfortunately, I don’t have a great pic of it but take my word for it -it was spectacular.

The chickens are amazing!  They are sweet and friendly.  They follow me around the yard while I’m gardening. They are very prolific layers, especially the CinnamonQueens.  All in all I think having chickens is a VERY positive experience.
