Solar S'mores

This really isn’t so much a post as it is, “I need to go to bed and these are the photos I have on hand”. For snack the other day we were given graham crackers, marshmallow creme, and chocolate chips. We could have just eaten them separately, or had crunchy bits in a s’more-type sandwich, […]
