This One's For You
The plan was simple. I would pack up a box of graham crackers, a bag of marshmallows and a bar of Hershey's chocolate and send it to Miss Pickering, along with a recipe for smores. I knew she and the Hound would think they were awful (ly good).
Then the temperatures dropped in England and she started talking about rain and jumpers, (sweaters to us on this side of the pond) and I started to worry, was it too cold, did she or didn't she have a grill, or whatever they call it in England. I dropped the whole idea.
But tonight GG wandered off in search of dessert and created a brilliant new smore. She toasted the marshmallow per usual BUT then she sandwiched it between 2 chocolate McVities digestives ("Tasty wheat cookies, half coated in chocolate").
An American classic updated for the lady and the hound. A little black dress with a brooch from Chanel, a pair of jeans with an Hermes scarf, a ball gown and wellies. German girl, putting the chic back in camping.
