An American Classic - English Style
It has been a great week, races on Wednesday for my birthday. Thursday we ran errands and met up with some old friends. Saturday, a couple of friends came over and they got the bicycles in working order and we grilled out. Hamburgers and hot dogs (and mini kabobs) with grilled vegetable pasta salad and corn on the cob. yummy. Felt like home (until we had to put the patio heater on in May to keep warm while on the back deck)! After our meal, we started a fire in the fireplace and went for a walk. The house was cozy and warm when we got back and perfect for my All-American dessert... S'mores! Since Hershey's chocolate is hard to come by, and other bars tend to be too thick for the marshmallows to melt we improvised with an English classic to replace the graham crackers and chocolate bar, chocolate covered digestives. These are a cookie (biscuit) of sorts that many English dip into their tea. I not being a tea drinker have come up with the best use for them. Sandwich around roasted marshmallows!! The thin layer of chocolate melted between the two cookies. An excellent blend of two classics! For my American friends who are interested, I know many stores carry them in the international foods department.
