August 30 is National Marshmallow Toasting Day.. Who knew there was a Day for Toasting marshmallows.
Most people have many memories for sitting around a camp fire and toasting Marshmallows. Taking the time to toast them just right. Or simply setting them on fire and blowing until you can blow no more.
So for one of the last weekends before school starts have a family night that you can (safely and with in the laws of where you live, check to see if there is a fire ban, or if you need a permit etc.) Have a fire in a fire pit, or BBQ. Make some good family memories and talk about when you were a kid and your memories of toasting marshmallows. You know having to go find the right toasting stick in the woods, just big enough, just green enough and how you were able to use a pocket knife to take off the bark and make it into a point. Now days we can just go a buy toasting sticks at any store that sells camping supplies. Which we do own and we do use.
Enjoy this great day tonight by a campfire or bonfire, toasting a big, soft, sticky and sweet marshmallow, or two, or three, or….. Summer would not be the same without a campfire and this great campfire treat. Summer is short. Summer is good. Let's enjoy it while it is still here. Toast a marshmallow and forget about everything else.
And, don't forget to make a few S'mores.
