Marshmallow Cookies and Cream Hot Cocoa

I decided to put my own spin on it and add some marshmallow extract and marshmallow ice cream topping. One of my favorite combos happens to be Oreo and Marshmallow.

Considering the varied commitments pulling us all in different directions, the consistency of this enterprise strikes me as a small miracle. My friend Val facilitates this miracle. She’s a planner, that Val, and without her, these summer jaunts to neighboring islands would never — despite our best intentions — occur. I, for one, have a hard time thinking about planning a single camping trip amid the darkness of a cold, damp Pacific Northwest winter, but not Val. Aside from the actual coordination of dates, I haven’t thought much about our camping plans for the summer.
