Not only has the
Anyway, it has largely been one of those weeks were all the little things make it feel like the world is tumbling down. I need a vacation...or some chocolate. We don't usually have marshmallows in the house, because I don't allow the kids to have artificial colors and even the white ones usually have Blue 1 in them, but I found some marshmallows at a dollar store the other day that didn't, so they've been my salvation. I've been making microwave s'mores--one of only two things microwaves are good for in my opinion (the other defrosting when you forget to get something out to thaw properly). They are quick, easy, and cheap at about $.22 each (based on my most recent purchase of the ingredients at the store on the corner of the trailer park, which I'm sure is way overpriced!).
1 graham cracker
1 tiny piece of chocolate (a regular candy bar has 12)
Put half the graham cracker on a microwave safe plate. Break the chocolate piece into 4 smaller pieces and arrange on the plate. Place marshmallow on top. Microwave until the marshmallow starts puffing up, about 5 seconds. Watch carefully, since if you let it go too long, it will explode and that will be no fun at all! Remove from microwave and top with other half of the graham cracker.
