Microwaved Marshmallows

We decided not to go camping over Memorial Day weekend because we had several days of rain and cold weather.  See our posts from the past several days about this adventure to get filled in.  We usually plan a big meal for at least one evening while camping, so as not to miss out on anything, even though we stayed home, we still had our big meal.  We had barbecued chicken, corn on the cob, and baked potatoes.  Yum! It was all very good.

 We are substitute camping however, so we have to finish the meal off with something we would have camping…. S’mores.  How can this be done without a campfire?  Oh, the conveniences of home.  The good ole’ microwave oven was put into use.  If you have never cooked a marshmallow in a microwave oven, I dare you to try it.  The marshmallow puffs up very large and gets very gooey.  Through some experimentation, we came up with a time of about 15 seconds for the most delicious s’more.  It melts the chocolate perfectly and makes a nice gooey mess.  So, the next time, you need to do some substitute camping, try a microwaved s’more.  You will be glad you did.

We had our big meal with some friends that were supposed to go camping with us; and we were blessed to have Carol’s Mom and Brother come down from Kalispell for the weekend.  Friends, Family, and good Food for a fun Camp IN.  You can’t beat it.
