I’ve posted about Bewiched before, specifically their soups. I’m just glad I work nearby (about 100 feet nearby) so I can always swing through for a cup. or a bowl. Or a quart. Or maybe two. Yum. This was perfect. Go there, quick, before they run out.

I’ve been craving S’mores ever since I saw a recipe for S’mores cookies in Martha Stewart Magazine while getting a pedicure last week. The recipe was simple. Take a homemade marshmellow, sandwich it between two chocolate dipped graham crackers and then dip the whole darn thing back in the chocolate. Simple enough, except for the homemade marshmellows. I tried making them once, and it didn’t go well. I certainly didn’t want to try it again. And after hitting two co-ops, I finally found a package of vegan marshmellows that I thought would work.

Here comes the lazy part. It was 9pm on teh 4th of July and I really wanted a S’more. Daughter was asleep, Husband and I were hanging out, and while he offered to start a fire in teh fire pit, I didn’t feel it was worth it for just one S’more, right? I was right. Instead I stuck two marshmellow’s in the microwave for about 45 seconds and Poof! Perfect!

I added a couple graham crackers and some dark chocolate from my Ikea runs, and Poof! Yum. A S’more. A very lazy S’more.

There’s something about a BLT that makes it just perfect for a hot summer day. Crisp bacon, soft lettuce (from my garden), juicy tomatoes (not yet from my garden, but soon), and toasted bread with a smear of Mayo. I can’t have a sandwich without the crunch of potato chips, and ripples are the best.

Speaking of lettuce, my crop is growing beautifully. Like, almost, too beautifully. If you need lettuce and live in the area please stop by and pick some. It’s out back near the alley. Looks like lettuce, it’s green, help yourself. Seriously.

What’s your favorite summer sandwich, and how is your garden doing?

Well, I promised. And a promise is a promise. So here goes.

I’m changing things up. This blog, The Write Ingredients, is going back to it’s roots. It’s going back to Food. All about eating food, and cooking food, and exploring ingredients, local (and not-so-local) goodies, and chocolate. Because you have to have chocolate.

But, but, you say. But what about all the sewing and drawing and art fairs and all that stuff? Well, that’s moving to a new home. (This is where the drumroll comes in…). I’d like to introduce you to…

It’s my new blog which will host my creative endeavors, including paper goods, sewing fun, design (graphic and otherwise) and my dreams. I’m still working on the details, and the Etsy shop, but it’s all coming soon. (Like next week if I can get my %$$^ together).

So hang tight, add it to your reader, and I’ll see you after the 4th. Happy Celebrating!
