Let's rehash this theme once s'more

Especially today, of all days -- National S'Mores Day -- it seems fitting to give a bit more thought to our brilliant idea of the gourmet S'More shack.

We are heartened to learn that "gourmet" is an adjective previously applied to S'Mores, as this cookbook testifies. There are some great ideas in here, I'm guessing, based on the table of contents. I'm partial to the "EXTREME" category.

Of course, one of the key problems to overcome in implementing our plan is how to cook indoors -- or have patrons cook indoors -- without earning the ire of the fire chief. Others have considered the problem. Look, for example, at this hibachi set-up from the "home chef" website. It's lovely to look at, but as we noted, this sort of thing lacks the "kampfire kum-ba-ya" factor.

So there's the latest on the idea that is destined to turn all of us into philanthropists. Input and responses welcome...

The Dishwasher Reveal

Here it is, friends, the footage you've been waiting for.

The reveal went exactly according to script, with Mom gushing about the contextually appropriate 'artwork' Mia had hastily painted that morning. She completely missed the new dishwasher. It took a couple heavy-handed hints from Mia and Deb before she caught on. Dad was a little faster on the uptake, but only a little.

Thanks again to everyone's part -- especially Dr. Phil!
