I am currently (much to my husband's chagrin) watching White Christmas, you know, the Bing Crosby movie....it is never officially the Christmas season in my book until I have watched White Christmas.
Today, my Brother in law made dozens of batches of hard candy (it may be rock candy or stained glass candy to you), 4 double batches of chocolate fudge, 4 double batches of peanut butter fudge, a double batch of his Great Grandmother's peanut butter fudge (can we say LOADED with peanut butter), and 3 different kinds of truffles...all with my sister in law's and my help. (I am sure my english teacher would have something to say about the grammar in that last sentence)
everything turned out great until we tried to dip the truffles....needless to say the chocolate because over cooked and the moisture went out of it and it was no longer dippable...
I have most of my shopping done. just a few little things to get, mainly for Little Man's stocking...and hubby's gift....he'll probably get a lump of coal this year...
