homemade marshmallow ghosts

homemade marshmallow ghosts

It still amazes me how just  “life” can be so busy. Much has been going on. Luc turned one {will share the few pictures I took of our french inspired brunch, soon},  Jeff has been working ALOT, I am Reed’s class’ room mom and there always seems to be some extra food item I need to recreate so Reed can share in the class activity, halloween costume  making or embelishing, if you will, several doctor’s appointments and some health concerns of others that are weighing hard on my heart.  Some days, I tell you I am just plain weary.

I am behind on my chores, but I’d rather share these cute marshmallow ghosts with you.

This past weekend Jeff went away on a much needed guys weekend in Michigan for a friend’s 40th birthday. He has been working soooooooooooooo much and really hasn’t had much guy-bonding since we moved here. I decided the weekend was going to be all about indulgence for me and the boys. Indulging in a loose schedule, breakfast for dinner, fun things to do together and snuggly naps together on the sofa. It was an enjoyable weekend! :) One of the things Reed & I did together Sunday morning {while Luc napped} was make homemade marshmallow ghosts. Have you ever made homemade marshmallows? Warning, once you eat homemade, there is no going back to store bought! They are easy and so worth it. I have been wanting to make them for-ever, but when we thought Reed had a slight corn allergy {that was later negated} I was forced to find a corn syrup free version. I continue to make this corn syrup free version because who really needs to eat that stuff anyway if you can avoid it?

This is the second recipe I tried, and it’s perfect! I discovered it from Jennifer Rizzo.

I am working on getting Instagram up on the blog. So many times, I have wished I had it to capture just a quick update with y’all.

Have a great week!
