I just wanted to share my not so brilliant discovery …

A few years ago, in Tennessee, I visited Bass Pro Shop for the very first time.

I love gadgets … especially for cooking … camping too.

I found this S’mores Maker … it was hard to fit in the suitcase and on the plane … in fact I was surprised that the TSA didn’t question it … but I had to have it!  We camp every summer with two other families where we all break out our new camping gadgets, games, cocktails, etc.

Well, the truth is, we like making s’mores the old-fashioned way … with the marshmallows on the fork.

We do like to grill asparagus … so here is my brilliant discovery …

Just drizzle the asparagus with a little olive oil, salt and pepper … grill one side for 5 minutes … flip it over and grill for 5 more minutes.

I knew that I really needed this gadget … I just didn’t realize how I would use it!

Do you have any other suggestions for my s’mores maker?
