once upon a time, i was born. 23 years later, i had s'mores for the very first time. i can't think of a particular reason for why i never made them before this weekend; the opportunity just never came. if it had, i would have been all over it. my college roommate made them in our dorm room and i had a s'mores brownie once, but never the real thing.
so my dad built a fire and taught me the art of roasting (not scorching) the marshmallows
and i tried very hard not to hold it against him that it took so long to do this.
