Things That Are Hot: Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge

Campfire for smores
For this week’s Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge, the theme is things that are hot. This campfire made some yummy smores last summer.

Canned spicy peppers
This is a mix of spicy peppers that I pickled and canned last fall. JalapeƱos, Scotch Bonnets, and some others that a friend grew but couldn’t remember the name. They sure were hot when I was cutting them up!

Toasting a marshmallow
Another campfire for smores from last summer. I guess that’s all I do in the warm months.

Two mugs of hot cocoa with marshmallows
Marshmallows again. I really didn’t think I ate them that often.

Smores for Lunch

Toasting a marshmallow

I had this awesome spot set up that would perfectly toast the marshmallows. Like a little kiln in the fire pit. I’m usually to impatient to toast them, and I plunge them straight into the flames until they are charred and molten balls of goo. I love the burnt marshmallow taste, but I can also appreciate the subtlety of a perfectly golden toasting.

The phone rang–an important call from the doctor. Then the looming rain finally started coming down and took out the coals.

Oh well, smores for lunch wasn’t the best idea anyway.

Summer is indeed just about over.
