MarshBerries

Oh my goodness! It's been almost a week since my last post. It has been sort of hectic at my full time job and when I get home in the afternoons, I'm ready to rest. I'm also busy catching up on some crochet and also spending some quality time with my husband. I'm still suffering ear problems and vertigo. My blogging has been put behind. I'm gonna try and do better.

This past weekend I had some time to enjoy my patio before the much needed rain set in. I made a little tiny table top fire pit. (But not for the heat).
 
This was an experiment. I needed a gel fuel can in the center but I thought I'd try some tea lights before I go purchase a can. It didn't make a great fire pit but it did make a nice candle. Hahahah.
 
Next time I'll do it right. Meanwhile, with the tea lights I was still able to pull off some marshmellow roasting. I didn't make smores because my hips said no and my hips don't lie. 
 
I dipped some strawberries in marshmellow cream and toasted them over the large fire pit. Haha. It worked once I caught them on fire and let them char. 
 
These little boogers are delicious and I'd go as far to say they are healthy. I did a couple over the stove fire in the house later and they were just as good. The marshmellow cream hardens to a soft candy shell that will not stick to your fingers and gives a light crunch when bit into it. This is my new favorite way of eating strawberries. I even gave them a name. "Marshberries". 
Its better than chocolate if you ask me. 

This week I'm working on loosing eight lbs I have gained since Christmas. No problem. Im just going to go back to strickly Nutrisystem and I bet it will be gone by the weekend. Wish me luck on that. I want to keep that 50lb loss though I think I could actually use a couple added lbs. Im just afraid the weight will keep adding on if I dont watch out. I caught myself lately snacking on chips and sweets more ofern than I should. I blame it all on not really feeling good. 

Summers coming.

  5. What a great idea, I've roasted marshmallows before but adding the berries is something that looks very tasty.

  6. Lovely work. I can tell you that my wife is having vertigo as well. I'm wondering if it's allergy driven.
    Take care.
