Hello Yummy Treats, Goodbye Diet

It was a making day today. I made all of our little family's favorite and traditional holiday treats:

a batch of Chex Party Mix,

a pan of English Toffee,

a double batch of Samurai Knitter's Toffee Shortbread (new last year and so delicious they're dangerous),

and Eggnog flavor (regular spritz recipe with 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg sifted into the flour) "Pooping Dog" spritz cookies with Red Hot eyes and mini chocolate chip poops.

I am making things with yarn too. I'm crocheting hexagons with all the leftover yarn I can dig up. I plan to attach them not in a straight line and leave the tails on the edges for fringe. It's going to be sort of like a scarf I saw in a mall store window, but when I went back to see the scarf it was gone and the store wasn't open so I couldn't go in and see if they still had one, so I'm just guessing, but I'm having fun and not buying any new yarn to do it. That's a good thing; I have too much yarn.

I'm glad to see photo proof of the toffee. I'm not sure I want to be anywhere without toffee on Christmas. See you real soon!

What makes you think there'll be any left when you get here on Wednesday?

Love, Mom

Heh heh heh. Another one lured to the dark side. (We have cookies here!)
