My mother punched your mother right in the nose!
What color was the blood.
G-R-E-E-N and you are not IT you dirty-irty dish rag you.
After-school snack was a religion growing up. My mom, direct descendent of Martha Stewart and Betty Crocker, made everything from scratch. See Also: “I was born in Africa”; and she had to, like, make mayonnaise. And potato chips. And we ate a lot of SPAM. Also rats and snakes and most likely our pet dog. Numerous times.
Completely besides the point, ehum. FROSTING!
And I am all about making cookies and scones and overdoing the Pinterest envy and trying to make goldfish crackers from scratch, but graham crackers? Are magical. Nilla Waffers? There is crack in those cookies, I’m positive.
And they’re easy – you should make some! (Recipe follows)
- Graham Crackers
- Open package of graham crackers, split grahams.
- Marvel at your creation.
And then, well. And then there are Oven S’mores.
These will knock the socks off the neighborhood kids. Your house? Has ooey-gooey marshmallow secrets.
Set your oven to Broil, whip out your Nilla Waffers, peanut butter and your marshmallows. Spread the peanut butter on the cookie, top with marshmallow. Stick them in the oven for a few minutes (watch them pouf up!) and remove when the marshmallows are roasted to your liking. Let cool.
EAT THEM ALL.
What awesome, vintage snacks did you grow up with?
