I have pulled a good old Christmas disappearing act. And I was being such a diligent poster. Oh well, you’ll have to forgive me.

Just working on the usual holiday madness. I am thisclose to having all the gifts done. Just one more gift to buy, and I’m finishing up the gift knitting. I have what I thought was the last one felting in the washer right now. That is, until Jason saw what I knit for one person, and told me his mom would LOVE one of those. Arg.

The butter is softening right now for the Christmas cookies I plan to bake later, and I have all the gifts sitting out in the living room as a subtle reminder that I need to wrap today LOL. Yesterday I made peanut butter fudge, and will make chocolate fudge later this week. I love my (ok, it’s really Alton’s, but I can call it mine) peanut butter fudge recipe. It’s so easy!!

Terribly fattening, yes, but hard? No way!

1 cup butter, plus more for greasing pan
1 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 pound confectioners’ sugar

Microwave butter and peanut butter for 2 minutes on high. Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes. Add vanilla and confectioners’ sugar to peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon. Pour into a buttered 8 by 8-inch pan lined with waxed paper. Place a second piece of waxed paper on the surface of the fudge and refrigerate until cool. Cut into 1-inch pieces and store in an airtight container for up to a week.

Oh and one more thing:

You have just been hit with a blog snow ball!

(The first one of the winter.)
It’s the start of….. Snow Ball Fight 2005-2006 !!!!

One rule to this game….
You can’t hit someone who has already hit you!

Now… go out there and get as many people as you
can, before they get you!

I got you first! and you can’t get me back!

We do not stop playing because we grow old; we grow
old because we stop playing.
