I suppose this holiday would make a lot more sense for the ‘normal’ Americans who are camping on their final hoorah of summer with a blazing log in the camp fire. However, at the boring Buchert mansion we have to improvise! And the improvisational process did not yield quite as tasty of results as one would expect in the real scenario. Let’s just say that marshmallows fresh out of the freezer don’t cook so evenly and mom shouting “Don’t catch your hair on fire” isn’t very relaxing. My life-long theory that we don’t need any part of the ‘smores’ but the marshmallow has been proved true! Ahh, simplicity.
