rainy day s'mores.

25 October 2010

rainy day s'mores.

let me set the mood:
it’s raining.
your kids are climbing the curtains to entertain themselves.
you’re pretty much bald at this point.
your last nerve says to bribe those monkeys kiddos with chocolate.
enter my rainy day s’mores.

what y'all will need:
½ cup sugar
½ cup butter, softened
1 large egg
1 tea vanilla extract
¾ cup crushed graham crackers
¾ cup all purpose flour
¼ tea salt
1 tea baking powder
3 hershey’s chocolate bars
1 jar marshmallow crème

the making part:
cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
beat in egg and vanilla extract.
add crushed graham crackers, flour, salt & baking powder.
beat until well mixed.

spoon ½ the dough into 8” greased baking dish.
break chocolate into pieces and arrange them over the dough.
spread a layer of marshmallow crème over the chocolate.
add the remaining dough over the marshmallow crème.
{it’s a little tricky & sticky, but oh so worth it. promise.}

bake at 350' for 30 minutes.
cool completely.
cut into bars.
feed your monkeys kiddos.

hope y'all enjoy.

xo, rachel

let me set the scene:
it's 3:38am.
everyone is asleep...well everyone but me & miss lindsey.
it's breastfeeding time. hi-5.

normally when i'm nursing in the wee hours of the morning, i'm on facebook.
{i heart my blackberry.}
i like to try to convince myself that facebook'n it will keep me awake.

well this morning things were a little different.
a fantastic quilt design decided to hit me out of no where.
yep. the most inopportune moment ever.
no paper. no pencil. no laptop.
after all there was a baby...well you know...attached to my body.

what's a girl to do?!?!
well this girl finished feeding the baby & immediately fell back asleep.

i know, i know.
but in my defense, i did sketch it out after i woke up again.

so what's the moral of this story?!?!
it's that inspiration can strike at ANY time.
even at 3:38am while breastfeeding.
