Here’s a topic close to my heart:  the over-exuberant new parent.  If you don’t have kids yet, take some advice from those of us that are ancient.  You have to show up EVERY day.  There is no gadget that will make parenting easier, so don’t let these well-intentioned inventions take your money.  Some of them are silly, some of them are gross.  All of them are unnecessary.

S’Mores. Enough Said.

The MSN Lifestyle page presented an article about “10 Fun (Inexpensive!) Outdoor Date Ideas.”  This caught my eye because, here in Arizona, outdoors is relative.  With hot summer nights less than 2 months away, we have to get out while the getting in good.

Forgetting for a moment that I just jumped on the soapbox of better national nutrition, idea #3 completely appealed to me:  S’mores.  The MSN blurb referred to them as, “the sweetest sandwich known to man,” and I couldn’t agree more.  There are lots of imitations out there, but nothing beats the real roasted marshmallows and gooey genuine milk chocolate concoction.

Now I am – ahem – NOT advocating that s’mores become a regular part of anyone’s diet.  But if it has been more than a year since you had the real deal, treat yourself and your loved ones.  They are extraordinary, if only once a year.
