For this week’s Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge, the theme is things that are hot. This campfire made some yummy smores last summer.
This is a mix of spicy peppers that I pickled and canned last fall. Jalapeños, 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!
Another campfire for smores from last summer. I guess that’s all I do in the warm months.
Marshmallows again. I really didn’t think I ate them that often.
(You could totally toast a marshmallow here if you had to.)
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.
I certainly ate too many smores tonight. I can’t help myself around smores and a campfire. Burnt marshmallow is my favorite. It’s so rare that I get the chance to toast marshmallows that I just go nuts. It’s not like I can put one of these things on the wooden balcony of my apartment.
Backyards are awesome.
