Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

That's s'more

The ShadowLands' lucky US readers will be waking up to National S'more Day, August 10. Popular in North America, a s'more (short for some more) is a traditional campfire treat consisting of a roasted marshmallow and a slab of chocolate sandwiched between two graham crackers.

The closest Australian equivalent might be a twisty, which consists of mixture of damper (unleavened bread), wrapped around a green stick and cooked on hot coals. A delight served with butter and golden syrup (placed in the hole where the stick was), and a few crunchy bits of bark, ash and insects to taste.

Hi Margos
My mum put on a stack of weight when she got her first microwave oven.
Milk coffee and things like you mentioned. Take a half a small kid's block of chocolate, a marshmallow and one arnotts morning coffee biscuit. Place the bikkie on the bottom, then the choccie then the marshmallow.
nuke it for 5 seconds I think (enough to make the choc soft and the marshmallow melt a bit) and you make a sandwich with a second bikkie.
Probably a good thing you can't get the little kids chocolate blocks any more, mum'd be the size of a house!

Mmmh - sounds like fair approximation for any Aussies wanting to take part in the celebrations. Thanks kae.
