Life Lesson Monday

Marshmallow lessons:

If the recipe says to use a stand mixer, they know what they're talking about. It might seem noble to be the stand mixer, but it gets really old once you've been standing for 10 minutes.

If you make homemade marshmallows, substituting yourself for a stand mixer, be prepared to stand there, mixing, for about half an hour. You will probably look like a jar of marshmallow creme exploded on you when you're done.

Try not to be too upset when your beautiful, tasty marshmallows turn back into sloppy sludge the next day.

Marshmallows are way more gratifying if you pronounce them "smarshmallows" or even "schmarshmallows."

A cup of cocoa and schmarshmallows is very comforting in the evening.

Blackened marshmallows will give you cancer. Or at least that's what I heard. lol

If you catch your marshmallows on fire, don't fling them around to put out the flame.

For reasons unbeknownst unto me, marshmallows toast better, and taste better, when you have the perfect roasting stick.

It's okay to eat 15 marshmallows in one sitting.

... Have you ever played chubby bunny? I just realized I haven't played that in a long time.


  1. I never knew you could make your own marshmallows! That's so awesome. :D Also, burnt marshmallows are the bestest! Also, lots of kids have died playing chubby bunny by choking to death on the marshmallows, true story. Don't do eeet!

  2. Woah.
    Guess I won't be playing that any more. :P
    3 people have asked me "what the heck is chubby bunny?"
    lol I thought it was common knowledge.


YAY! I'm so glad you're leaving a comment. ^.^
