Hippos and Divinity.

18 Dec

When I was in college, one of my sorority sisters just LOVED Hippopatamusses…Hippopatami? She loved them! So whenever Christmas rolls around and I hear this song it makes me think of Sharon!

 

In the baking / candy making arena, I’ve had two failed attempts at divinity. It’s very frustrating since it’s the same recipe I’ve used my whole life! I think my candy thermometer is off so will try a new one (after buying more supplies!). I hate to think of trying a new recipe but that might be my next step if Try Number Three doesn’t work out!

Holiday Singalong – Day 2!!

Maybe about 5-6 inches?

So last night we got a big ol’ snow storm (well, a medium ol’ snow storm anyway!). And I also got the tree up and after a VERY much delayed start to my holiday celebrating/baking/decorating I am FINALLY jumping right on it.

After shoveling out today (or, maybe I had someone do it for me…) I ran a couple of errands and now it’s time to settle in and let the smell of chocolate and butter and sugar and nuts and all kinds of other goodies take over the house for the next week.

And when I do my Christmas baking, I like to crank some really random music. Today’s selection includes:

On the “menu” for today is some quick and easy fudge, some not so quick and easy divinity (that I have been wanting to make for the last year at least!) and mixing up some cranberry noel cookies – I first made these a few years ago and they have become a favorite of mine for sure! They are most excellent with coffee any time of day!!

Today’s apron is a favorite from my college roommate –

As you can see, I am not terribly consistent with my apron ironing…

So what do you have left to do to get ready for Christmas??!
