Can you believe it’s Valentine’s Day already?
Crazy, right? It seems like we were just ringing in the New Year. Next thing you know, I’ll be asking if you can believe it’s Halloween. Weird.
Anyway, Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. It’s a Wednesday. And since it’s still a working day, I’ll be working…. and then going to church.
Very exciting, I know.
Jay and I don’t really do much for Valentine’s Day. And we don’t have children so there’s none of those little things that we have to send to school with them.
However, we do have a potluck sorta thing at our church. Ok. It’s not sorta a potluck — it is a potluck.
Our Pastor’s wife is amazing and she always plans such fun things to accompany the meals. For the Valentine’s meal, she’s coordinated a variety of things — like a King an Queen crowning and a dessert competition.
I’m not always a kitchen person but this year, I had something in mind that I had to try!
Granted, it didn’t beat out the Death by Chocolate but it did take second place!
And I’m pretty darn please with that considering I only dirtied one bowl and spent less than 30 minutes in the kitchen.
I love you S'more than Fudge Bars
A taste of summer perfect for anytime

Okay, so I put that into what seems like a lot of steps but I promise it’s not really as bad as all that.
I really don’t like spending my time in the kitchen but I hate not having clear cut directions more.
Anywho, if you’re curious about how I got those nice toasty looking marshmallows, I used a little torch. It was fun!
I’ll leave you along now so you can go and whip up this totally delicious treat before tomorrow! Enjoy!!
