We have yet to go camping this year. It’s sad. I love the woodsy smells, the quiet vigil as the sun goes down over a calm lake, the waking up early because there is a bird squawking outside of your tent and you want to throw your shoe at it. I mean the bird songs singing you to sleep and chirp of chipmunks as they rummage through your snacks and shoes you left outside of the tent. I mean the wildlife and food wonderfully cooked over an open fire.
Even though we haven’t made it anywhere rustic, we still get our fix for campfire food at home. Smores have been the quickest and most delicious.
You only need three basic ingredients to make you start smelling pine needles and swatting imaginary mosquitoes: graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows. I threw in some strawberries to switch it up.
These will definitely help you with your campfire fix. For more fun, melt the mallows over an open candle flame. Watch for cat tails and curious noses if doing it on the coffee table.
