We wish you a merry Christmas!

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

We have been making all kinds of treats the last few days… like peanut butter fudge, chocolate almond toffee, chex mix, cinnamon white chocolate pretzels, nutella no bake cookies AND

Emelia cooked dinner last night and used a recipe she learned in home-ec for a pancake topping called dutch honey.  Here’s the recipe:

Dutch Honey

1 c. sugar

1 c. corn syrup

1 c. heavy cream

1 t. vanilla

bring to boil and serve over pancake or waffles.

Emelia said that her teacher’s family calls this heaven on a plate 🙂 … it was pretty yummy.

The first batch of toffee is more like caramel with chocolate and almonds and I actually prefer it to the later two successful batches of toffee!  I now have requests for peanut butter cookies with the hershey kisses and peanut brittle.

Today we spent a great day at Bass Pro with Izzy’s two classmates and their families.  Our mission: to see Santa!  It was really a great day that ended with a delicious lunch at Toby Keith’s.

It’s the downhill slide into Christmas… Bailey’s play is over (Zombie Prom – was GREAT btw!), two more school days, all is wrapped… Just a few more fun things to do before we celebrate and then start a new year.

Merry Christmas with ? love ? from the Pettigrew Family!
