Thank you for coming to my house the other night to make dinner for a sister in the ward. I'm sure her husband was very grateful he didn't have to cook when she came home with their new baby. Like the evil superstore says "Good works". (Just another example of the philosophies of men mingled with the Real Stuff).
Thank you also for not openly gagging at the appalling condition of my stovetop drip pans. I appreciate that you refrained from calling ch!ld protective services and the he@lth department after seeing how disgusting they were.
I am happy to report the following:They are now scrubbed spotlessly clean. (If only Jenni's tag wanted pictures of my drip pans. I would be happy to comply. I'm still screwing up my courage to do the rest of her tag. Maybe for Halloween -- the pictures would be frightful.)
But, back to Good Food Friday.
Today, in honor of my labors, I am sharing another family recipe, complete with pictures.
This is a little something my mom taught me (thanks Mom!).

Though it is sometimes entertaining make a burnt offering of your marshmallow over a campfire, I don't recommend you try Flaming Death while inside. And of course, take all appropriate precautions, wear appropriate personal protective safety equipment, and just plain be smart when cooking.
One other option:
When Peeps Marshmallow Wonders of Creation are available in grocery stores, it is sometimes fun to roast them on a stick. The heat does beautiful things to the sugary coating. Mmmmmmmm.
Give it a try!
