Celebrate with the Hedgehogs ~ National S'mores Day

Come celebrate with the hedghogs for
National S'mores Day!

Summer isn't summer without s'mores!
I'm long retired from my days in an elementary classroom,
but if I were still teaching, I'd have a small teepee set up
for a quiet reading spot that would include a couple of these big, soft pillows fom MacKenzie-Childs.  
I predict such a reading corner would be in high demand for those students looking for some quiet solitude.  

Sadie doesn't read, 

but she agrees this cute MacKenzie-Childs pillow is a 
perfect soft addition for lounging.

It was also the springboard for setting a dessert tray to 
celebrate the day with s'mores and an afternoon cup of expresso.

Too hot for a campfire, so I'm serving these delicious bites
 of chocolate with roasted marshmallows ~ S'mores Tiny Pies.

Do you see those cute little hedgehogs?
Chocolate is toxic to dogs, so
I added a safe little treat for our Sadie girl.
Trader Joe's Organic Honey Hedgehog Cookies
are for people, but a bite or two is safe for Sadie.

The petite cup and saucer was a antique shop find  
last fall when I visited Kansas City.
It's the perfect size for an expresso, but mostly it was the rim of words that name different animals that intrigued me.
This teacher loving heart couldn't resist it!

S'mores is the contraction of "some more"!
As a young  Girl Scout, camping always ended 
with these gooey chocolate treats.
As an adult, campfires are no longer a frequent occurance 
in my life, but I never turn down a chance to indulge 
in a s'more of any variety.

S'mores Tiny Pies, 
chocolate custard baked in a graham cracker crust and topped with homemade marshmallows roasted to perfection.

What is your favorite way to eat s'mores?
