Campfires, Marshmallows and Fried Potatoes

Good morning, dear ones! I’m still basking in the glow of two marvy days spent with my folks, brother and sis-in-law.  It was SO good to be with them.

I started my Saturday morning with comfort food: fried potatoes with sausage, caramelized onions and ripe cherry tomatoes.

Saturday night my ever-present pain decided to give me a reprieve – hooray! – so I was able to go out for dinner where Dad treated us all to fabulous German food: Schnitzel, red cabbage, fried potatoes, steaks, spaetzel. Mmm, everything was marvelous.

Then we went back to Mum and Dad’s place and Mum built a fire outside and we all huddled close telling stories and roasting marshmallows and laughing ourselves sick. We had such a great time and parted that night with squeezy hugs and resolutions to get campfires in all our backyards. They really are the most wonderful things.

Chaya - I am glad you had a reprieve from the pain. It would be nice if it would go away, completely.

Each food you mentioned, in this post, I adore. I think, I should have been invited along. I would have behaved, Krista.

I love that last photo. No, I love all your photos but that last one is magical.

Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella - That last picture is so gorgeous! You know I’ve never roasted marshmallows on sticks? I feel like I should! 😀

Joanne - I’m so glad you were better enough to be able to spend time with the family! I hear the prospect of campfires and marshmallows are curative. As is laughter and love 😛 The best medicines.

Meeta - campfires, family and good food – it could not get better!

Krista - We can see your smoke billowing over the border where I live, Val! I can only imagine how bad it is near you. I hope you get drenching rains very soon and can have REAL camp fires again. 🙂

Krista - You’re so welcome, Velva. 🙂 It was such a happy night with my family. 🙂

bellini valli - Campfires bring back such wonderful memories. Sigh. This time of year with all the forest fires here in BC they are banned. Roasting marshmallows over the Coleman stove and sitting around the citronella candle just doesn’t give you the same atmosphere:D

Velva - Comfort food, bon fire, roasted marshmallows, stories that make you laugh yourself silly-all makes for a perfect evening. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Krista - I completely agree, Elra! 🙂

elra - Food taste much more delicious at the camp ground I think.

Krista - I wondered where you’d gone, Duchess! 🙂 Sounds like a fabulous getaway. 🙂

Duchess - Oh man, just got back from a week vacay at the beach in the Hamptons and I already miss the toasted marshmallows!
