    HI, I just came to your blog from PW… anyway I saw your smores and I have to tell you to try this…

    Ritz Cracker
    Kraft Caramel
    Ritz Cracker

    I don’t buy graham crackers anymore and I turned into a Ritz smore snob. Even if we don’t have the caramel I still have my smores with Ritz rather than graham.

    Try it!

  15. cathy – welcome! and I can’t wait to give this a try – VERY intriguing and it sounds delish…thanks!

    and thanks to everyone for posting menus…you guys are the best!
