Brenda Photo Challenge: SWEETS

Strawberry flavored marshmallows that have been hanging around all summer. I'm thinking that one of the kids bought these and didn't like them or else there wouldn't have been any around to take a shot of.

I just bought a mixed bag of candies yesterday and hid them away as best I could so that the kids would have a treat when they came home from school. I'll probably have to hide them several times so they'll last a few days.

Now this is my favorite kind of sweet, we shucked a whole bunch of sweet corn last month. I think we put about 200 ears in the freezer.

The sweet and lovely Miz Tegan is our hostess for today's Photo Challenge. Thank you, young lady, for doing this for us!

You'd think this would be an easy one for me what with all these chillins overrunning the house most days, but it was one of the most difficult. In this house, anything remotely sweet lasts about as long as a fart in a whirlwind, no joke! I didn't think you'd want to see photos of the half chewed wad of bubble gum that got tossed into my ashtray, or the nutty buddy ice cream cone that was mostly eaten before it ended up in the trash,,, You didn't, did you?

My first thought was "eww strawberry marshmallows." But then it turned to, "hrm, I wonder what those would be like for s'mores?" LOL

Sharon Ellery said...

Sweets don't last long in our house either, but even after all this time the DH hasn't realised this, He wandered out of the study last night wanting some of those M & M's - they had been eaten days ago ....LOL
