S’mores!

I thought we should do a shout out to our recent crazy weather and power outages.  What’s more fun than roasting marshmallows over the fire our in our case the gas stove, on a cold and stormy winters night. 

Ingredients:

Graham crackers

Chocolate bar

Marshmallows

Directions:

Over a fire, or stove melt the marshmallows on a heat proof stick.  Smash your melted marshmallow and a piece of chocolate in between two graham crackers.

ENJOY!

Learning Corner:

Take some time during the night and play a family game, or have each member of the family tell a story.

This is a super easy, but fun snack that all kids love to eat.  Make it for a family movie night and then sit back and enjoy time together.

Ingredients:

1 large soup pot with lid

1-2 tablespoons oil

1/2-3/4 cup popcorn kernels

Directions:

Heat oil over medium to medium high heat on your stove, once oil is hot added your popcorn kernels. Cover the pot with a lid, it there is a glass one your kids can watch the popcorn as it pops.  Shake the pot lightly from side to side so the kernels don’t burn.  Once they start popping slow your shaking down, and wait until the popping slows down to 1-2 pops every few seconds. Remove from heat.  Add butter, salt or even cheese to your popcorn. 

ENJOY!

Learning Corner:
