Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent." Today we are studying the letter "S" as in S'mores. I love S'mores...don't you?
A while back (maybe a year ago) I stumbled across a recipe for You're Killin' Me Smalls (my son tells me that's a line from a movie) on someones blog. Basically, these were S'more cupcakes. It isn't a blog that I have saved, so I had to go do a google search in order to find it again so I could give credit where credit is due. The blog is Lessons Of A Newlywed, but I don't know the author's name.
Anyway, I decided to finally bake them for this week's Alphabe-Thursday post. Bake and test. The sacrifices I make for Alphabe-Thursday. I baked them this morning and immediately ate two of them for you. They were very good although I would make a couple of minor changes next time.
You can find the complete recipe here.
The main ingredients are French Vanilla cake mix, graham cracker crumbs, Hershey's Kisses and Marshmallow Creme. Before baking you push a Hersey's Kiss into each cupcake.
While I was making these I caught Shelby stealing dog treats. Zoom opened the cabinet and Shelby managed to get the cover off of her treats. I don't know how many she got before I noticed, but I took this picture after I put the cover back on. Afterwards I secured the cabinet doors with a rubber band. I need to buy another child proof latch. We used to have one on this cabinet until it broke.
Meanwhile, I don't get online a whole lot these days. I've been trying to get things done around here that have been left for too long. Last Fall we got a new backdoor and although it was primed it needed to be painted. I noticed some mold on the woodwork around the door, so I bleached it and then painted the trim and door. That was a good chunk of two days.
I've also been getting some things done around the yard. Our backyard has a lot of shade. I came up with this idea for a mobile vegetable garden. Every couple of hours I go out and move the wagon as the sun goes across the sky. I'm trying to give these little buggers six hours of sun a day. I'm not sure I can keep this up when the weather turns hot, but I'll try. I actually took this picture a few days ago and they've all grown since then! I've got a tomato plant, two tomatillo plants, and two jalapeno plants. Blackie is keeping her eye on them for me.
Now head over to Ms. Jenny's blog so you can visit some more Alphabe-Thursday posts.
