Before I officially turn the page, this mom is toasting the end of summer with a S’mores Martini this weekend! I have made a few s’mores this summer for the kids and now it’s time for mom to kick back, reflect a bit and get ready to turn the page and prep for fall. It’s been a VERY busy summer with a few unexpected twists and turns at our homestead, some fab and some not so much, but that is the story of life. The not so good included my niece having emergency surgery, my brother developing Lyme’s disease that came with an infection around his heart combined with chronic mono and news that my dad’s cancer has come back. Yup, that’s the bad stuff we all come across at various times in our lives. On a good note, I have three amazing kids, at times like these we all remember to appreciate every day and the people who are a part of our lives, my kids have had a fabulous summer for the most part and some pretty cool new experiences, we shared many times with friends, vacationed as a family, I enjoyed my travels with the Price Chopper Kids Cooking Club and I often just took moments to enjoy what was around us.
I have to say that I am very excited that the forecast for the Labor Day weekend is looking sunny with only a chance of scattered showers in the northeast, because I am kicking and screaming that summer is coming to an end and want to savor every last ounce. I guess that is the sign, that at the end of the day, it was a good summer when you aren’t wishing away the season you are in. I hope your summer was a good one, your Labor Day weekend is relaxing and I look forward to sharing from my counters this fall with all who stop by for our regular dose of what’s cooking, my travels with the Price Chopper Kids Cooking Club, what’s happening and the chaos that often surrounds our days….
- 1 cup low fat milk
- 4 oz. marshamallow flavored vodka
- 3 oz. Godiva Chocolate liquer
- 2 tablespoons of Hershey's chocolate syrup
- Add all of the ingredients along with a 1/2 cup crushed ice into a shaker & shake it up. Depending on glass size, this recipe should make three martinis. Add a drizzle of chocolate to the top. Rub the edge of each glass with the marshmallow vodka and dip them in crushed graham crackers and serve.
- I have been using the S'moreables Gluten Free Graham Crackers by Kinnikinnick Foods as the ground graham cracker around the edge of the glass.
