1st Annual Roast and Toast

Ok. So I have come to the realization that wherever these two boys are's trouble. Trouble in so many ways. Just thought that I would get that out there before I decided to proceed.

We decided to have a Roast and Toast. Definition would be that we wanted to roast and toast unusual things. Edible, of course, but unusual. After a trip to the grocery store (and $65 later :/),
we mamaged to purchase a whole schlew of things that could be easily roasted with the fire's glowing warmth. Yet, somehow, we felt that mountain pies were a must. Behold, the finest mountain pies to ever grace your computer's screen.
First off, we are all well aware that it is imperative to butter the outside pieces of bread before placing them in the mountain pie maker. Well, we though spray butter would be ridiculously effective (and 0 calories a squirt). However, after an 1/8 of an inch of pure ash on out mountain pies, spray butter was out, and real butter was in. I'm just warning you for your future spray butter ventures...don't do it.

The second mountain pie, pizza edition. We have discovered something heavenly. Have you ever been to Carraba's? You know, that delicious Italian restaurant that has heavenly foccacia and dipping oil with spices. Well, I have found the spices. Thanks to Jeff Crossgrove for enlightening me about this subject. Go to Weis, purchase the McCormick Italian Seasoning Grinder. Place it on absolutely everything you eat. It will change your life.

Jared decided that instead of letting the second mountain pie to become ash again, that keeping an eye on it wouldn't be a bad idea. I, on the other hand, was so paranoid about it burning again....that I just opened it up every 24 seconds. But, it paid off......scroll down a little more

Oh, no, keep going. (This is Jared's mountain pie fail)

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, mountain pie heaven. Do you see how perfectly golden those edges are. Sourdough bread kissed with light mayo, Italian Seasoning, fat free cheese, and brown sugar ham. I want to eat these in heaven one day....and be the envy of all mountain pie rookies.

And then, the fun started. Carmelized Swedish Fish anyone? Jared made me do it.

But the mother of all concoctions that we attempted was this. Swedish Fish Fire Jelly.
It sucks.
