Cubbie helps do chores, her naughty pup needs taken in hand. Mishka helps.
Mokie want me to make candies for Christmas. I usually make fudge as it is Poppie favorite, but that is usually all the candy I make. Boy and I made a batch of fudge at Thankgiving Time for them and we have the stuff to make another for them. Mokie wanted divinity, and I have never made it, my mom has always but it was never something I made. We got out mom's recipe and Cubbie and I did our best. Mokie had seen her aunt Baby Sister make it so had some advice on what she thought we should do. We did our best and for a first try it turned out quite well. The next batch, which Cubbie and I will be making today, I will quit beating it just a tad earlier and it should be perfect. Bug wouldn't even try the first batch he said didn't think the first batch of anything would be that good, too funny. Mokie and the kids took the candy home with them to share with Son.
The girls and I will be making our traditionaly family sugar cookies later tonight, I will probably make them with Cubbie today and the girls will just decorate them but we will see. I plan on making some peanut butter bon bon, that will be a first too, but we think we can do a good job anyway. I have to make more fudge for Poppie so lots of candy making today. I will make pies and cheesecake on friday afternoon. Have to take Poppie to the Dr on Friday morning and finish my last minute shopping. Coffee is here so time to start my day........... tomorrow.
