National Marshmallow Toasting Day

Saturday, August 30, 2014

National Marshmallow Toasting Day

Date When Celebrated : Always on August 30th

Origin: Unknown

During eleven out of the twelve months of the year, we enjoy a wide range of holidays. When we get to August, there is a major shortage of big holidays to celebrate. Perhaps that is why many Europeans take the month of August off for vacation.

Perhaps it as just as well that there are no big holidays to compete with National Marshmallow Toasting Day. After all, how could any holiday compare with this day!?!

Enjoy today or tonight by a campfire or bonfire, toasting a big, soft, sticky and sweet marshmallow, or two, or three, orů.. Summer would not be the same without a campfire and this great campfire treat. Summer is short. Summer is good. Let's enjoy it while it is still here. Toast a marshmallow and forget about everything else.

And, don't forget to make a few S'mores. The recipe is below.

S'mores Recipe:

Chocolate candy bar
Honey Graham Crackers

Break off a square of Graham cracker
Add a piece of Chocolate.
Toast a big marshmallow over the campfire.
Add the hot marshmallow.
Top it with another graham Cracker.
Eat , savor and enjoy!
Note: You can make S'mores in the microwave. Just put them together and pop them into the microwave on high for 15 to 20 seconds.

    Ordinarily I don't care for marshmallows, but maybe today . . . in honor of the day!

Have a great weekend.

    Love marshmallows all year long. I used to use them in my Christmas baking.....

But they are so high in sugar, I seldom have them anymore..... (sigh)

    I have been asked how I come up with these days. It started when my oldest son was born. My wife's aunt started a savings account for him. She would give money for each holiday she could find for the month. I thought this was a great idea, and continue this tradition with my grandkids. Thanks to the internet, I am finding more days to celebrate!
