NATIONAL LAZY DAY

Today there will not be much information regarding this annually celebrated holiday as we do not feel like doing any research.  Actually we do not feel like doing anything at all today, other than lay out on the hammocks with a couple of good books and a tall glass of lemonade or iced tea, as it is National Lazy Day and we choose to be lazy other than telling you that this holiday is celebrated each year on August 10 and the creator and origin of National Lazy Day, an “unofficial” national holiday could not be found.

Have a great day!

NATIONAL S’MORES DAY

The most popular campfire treat is celebrated each year on August 10 as it is National S’mores Day.  This delicious, sticky and gooey treat is loved by millions across the United States.

S’mores consists of a roasted marshmallow with a layer of chocolate bar sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker.

The origin of this tasty snack is credited to the entrepreneur Alec Barnum, however the first recorded version of the recipe can be found in the 1927 publication of Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.   Even though the Girl Scouts were not the first ones to make s’mores, Girl Scout groups describe them in their reports as early as 1925.  Earlier recipes used the name “Some Mores” and it is unclear when the name was shortened to “S’mores”.

Today there are many variations to the original s’more such as:  spread peanut butter on the graham crackers before adding the other ingredients, use peanut butter cup candy bars in place of the chocolate bar or use other candy bars, use marshmallow cream instead of roasted marshmallows and etc.

Following is a “tried and true” S’more Bar recipe for you to make, enjoy and share with your friends and family.
