How to Make Your Husband Happy

Scene: On the couch, watching a little television after you've eaten a yummy homemade Cinco de Mayo mexican meal. The immense amount of cheese and carbohydrates have not satisfied your hunger. Something even more sugary and unhealthy is required.

As you walk into the kitchen to begin your search, husband asks, "Hey honey, could you toss me a Swiss Cake Roll?". You scoff at your husband's deep love for Little Debbie Snacks, even though you secretly wish you had an Oatmeal Cream Pie in the pantry.

As you look for a Swiss Cake Roll, you have to move the box of graham crackers out of the way. Lightbulb moment: GRAHAM CRACKERS. Check. MARSHMALLOWS. Check. HERSHEY BAR. Check. SMORES!!!!! Holla!!!!!

No need for a campfire. You have a microwave.

Unwrap graham crackers. Get out two little plates and place graham cracker on each. One for you, one for husband. Open Hershey's bar. Eat three of those little pre-divided rectangular nuggets of heaven. Okay, eat four... you know, just to make it even. We all have our cross we must bear.

Break off a "square" of chocolate and place it on graham cracker. Oops! You didn't break the chocolate evenly! Simple solution: just place smaller amount of chocolate on husband's graham cracker. Place the bigger one on your graham cracker. And then, break off the part that is left over on the chocolate bar, you know, just to make it even. We all have our cross we must bear.

Open Jet-puffed marshmallows. Eat 2. Okay, eat 3. Place one marshmallow on piece of chocolate. Place plates in microwave.

Set time for 20 seconds. Stand in front of the microwave and watch the marshmallow gooey goodness rise up and explode over the chocolate. Take plates out of microwave.

"Whatcha doin babe?" asks husband.

"Making you something so much better than a Swiss Cake Roll!" you reply.

Place remaining Graham cracker on top.

Bring plate to husband.

"Is this a smore?!?" he asks.


"Oh my gosh babe"

"I hope you like it"

"Oh my gosh, this is soooooo good. You should do this every night!!!"

"Good, I'm glad you like it!"

"This is so messy!"

"Haha, you're making quite the mess!"

"It's all over my face, and I don't even care. Seriously I just got melted chocolate on my jeans, and I don't even care"

"Okay sweety"

"Babe, you've gotta eat one of these"

"Oh, alright...... I guess I'll eat one too. I had made this second one for you, but I guess I will eat it"

"It's so good!"

"Good honey...."


  1. I L-O-V-E microwave s'mores! Yumm-mee! My roommate in college and I used to make them all the time. I haven't had one in a long time, but I think it's time...

    Thanks for your prayers!

    Love ya!

  2. Ha! That is hilarious! I totally used to make smores at home, too, except I'd actually roast the marshmallows over the flame on our gas stove.

  3. That is funny!!
    I love the part about getting it on the jeans - LOL!
    Have a great day!

  4. There may not be anything better than a smore! :)

    Y'all take care!

  5. So, when I come over (you know, because you live in Houston now) we should make smores in the microwave. I've never done that before. :)

  6. I just laughed so hard I may have wet myself. There is a very big possibility I wet myself.

    You make me laugh.

    And i'm jealous of Lindsee.

    She gets to go eat smores with you...not fair!

    Love you!
