Hostess with the most-est. . .
My 19 year old came out to help with the candy making. We had issues of course. I wasn't running on all "cylinders" and she hadn't worked with candy for a year. We were a bit rusty at it, but after one batch, turned on a Christmas movie to take a break.
We made buckeyes, mint chocolate covered crackers (mock mint girl scout cookies) and I made another batch of salted caramel fudge. The guys at Hubby's work were begging for the fudge.
A plate of goodies went to work with Hubby this morning.
It rained all day Thursday. Cloudy, dreary, and cold. It's wet and cold today, and I have no plans to bake one iota. It's a house cleaning day.
You may see a blurp or two in my posts from now on. It'll start to get crazy busy.
