I made s'mores treats and boiled some corn to contribute to tonight's meal @ the parent casa.

S'mores treats:

4 tbsp butter
1 tbsp vanilla
1- 16oz box golden grahams
1 bag mini marshmallows
1- 12oz bag chocolate chips
1/4 cup milk

Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add vanilla, stir until smooth. Pour in the marshmallows, stirring until melted and smooth, coating the spoon. Gradually add the cereal, stirring to coat the cereal fairly evenly. Pour mixture into a greased large baking dish, press out evenly. While it settles, use the microwave to heat the chocolate (in a microwave-safe bowl). Heat one minute at a time, stir between heating. Once smooth, add the milk and microwave for 30 seconds more, then whisk until incorporated and smooth. Pour over cereal mixture, then let cool until just set. These are a bit more fun than the usual krispy treats.

The corn I did utilized a delicious product I'd never tried: Wiley's Corn Boil. It is delicious! It made 6 ears of supermarket corn sweet and tasty. Definitely suggest it! :)

Baby bro Patrick created a remoulade sauce to top the crab cakes my mother made, and it was super good.


* 1/2 cup mayonnaise
* 2 Tablespoons grated onion
* 1/2 cup cocktail sauce
* 2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
* 1 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce

Combine all ingredients and chill.

A very tasty dinner, indeed!
