I think I totally jinx myself when I say that there will be a Friday post. Mostly because then there isn’t. And tonight wasn’t looking so good for follow-through, but I’m making it just under the wire.
Earlier this week, on a night that we foraged in the refrigerator and fashioned dinner from leftovers, Nick and I made dessert. What better way to use the extra time? And having someone else deal with the stickiness of a recipe that calls for a jar of marshmallow fluff totally didn’t color my willingness to let him help. At all. Swear.
Graham crackers. Butter. Chocolate. Marshmallow fluff. I’m not sure you can go wrong. Except if it adds up to much sweetness, and I’ve got to be honest, I thought it did the first night. I had half of a piece and wasn’t interested beyond that. The kids ate all theirs. And the next night. And the next night. I went back and had another piece, and while I still think it’s really sweet, I warmed up to it much more, which is how it ended up here. Apparently it took me four days to like it.
Excuse the picture. Eleven pm at night. On the stove. With the stove overhead light. Doesn’t really spell the natural lighting you need for pictures. But it was either that or no photo or no post. So I went the sub-par photo route and hope to distract you with more fun, much more excellent photos below.
This weekend? Boston bound, baby! No post Sunday, but I’ll be back here Monday night. Promise.

When Mystic sees a good sunset, he’ll sometimes text me the picture. This one I spotted tonight with my very own peepers. I could seriously spend hours looking at the sky, sunset or not. Except, you know, it doesn’t really pay the bills. So a quick glance here and there works wonders.
