Chefs, Marshmallow Fluff, and S'meeps, Oh, My!

We've had such a fun few days!

On Thursday, Aunt Karen joined us for lunch. She gave the girls a belated Christmas gift...aprons, chef's hats, and pot holders. They have had SO much fun! "I'm a chef! I'm a chef!" they keep exclaiming. And this mommy can hardly stand the cuteness.

We've had some beautiful weather lately, but it's been pretty windy. It's finally perfect for the girls to weather these light puffer jackets I bought at the end of last season. I can hardly stand the cuteness here, either...and I can't resist calling the girls "my marshmallow fluff". They, of course, think that's pretty hilarious, too.

And on Sunday night, I employed yet another Pinterest find...S'mores made with Peeps. Aunt Karen and Aunt Shanda and I embarked on this endeavor together, and Karen immediately coined the term "S'meeps". I think it's a keeper.

While we toyed with the idea of starting up the fire pit, I didn't know how Peeps would respond to open flame. We instead relied on Shanda's toaster oven.

Here are the pink bunny Peeps, nice and toasty...

Carefully place toasted Peep on its chocolate / graham cracker bed.

Tuck him in, nice and tight.

And enjoy the ooey-gooey goodness!

As our sugar high began to kick in, we turned "S'meeps" into a verb, and then an adjective. "S'meeping is fun!" "You're a great S'meeper!" "These are S'meep-alicious!"


I'm linking up with Cheryl at Twinfatuation today. My sweet baby girls, in all their marshmallow fluffiness...and some pretty great sugar-loving friends who appreciate some good, old-fashioned silliness...that Makes My Monday!

ok woman, you need to share the link to your pinterest profile so I can follow your boards. I spent the whole weekend thinking of the yogurt melts and then you hit me with marshmallows on Monday... I'm so salivating it's not even funny

Cheryl Lage said...

You always Make My Monday. Thanks for playing along!

They are the CUTEST little things in their chef outfits! And, they remind me of mine in their pink and purple jackets. Some of our friends tell them apart because 'Cam is the pink twin and Gray is the purple one'. They've staked those colors as their own, and there are TONS of clothes that don't match, but coordinate with one pink and one purple. :)

I am not a fan of peeps, but I love s'mores - I think I might like your smeeps. :)
