Hello, pals! Happy about-to-be-the weekend!

It’s Friday and I’m doing the Friday dance. It’s kinda like the Carlton, but without Tom Jones. And WITH ‘NSYNC! I’m singing, “Will You Be My girlfriend [Boyfriend]” to JT. ♥

Also? I found out that you DO NOT make-up your own lyrics when singing Santa songs around the kids. Lemme tell you…

You would not believe the tantrums that happened here when I decided to sing Jingle Bells my way. I mean, it’s not MY way.  You know the one:

Crashing through the roof

In a one-horse open tree

Busting out I go

Laughing all the WHEEEEEE!

Then I continued;

Jingle Bells Grandma smells…

As soon as I said, “Grandma smells”, my older one LOST IT! She started crying and asking me, “How could you say that about BABA (Grandma)?? I LOVE HER! She’s YOUR MOM!!!”.

Um. WHY didn’t I just stick with the good ol’, “Batman smells”??

You guys, I tried SO HARD to keep a straight face, but I couldn’t. I laughed as she cried. I tried explaining to her that it was a parody song, but she wasn’t having it. I WISH I was smart enough to get it all on video.

Now we can discuss Toffee and all its glory! All it takes is a whisk, some sugar, and lots o’ butter. Chocolate and Coffee, for good measure. Almonds and Pretzels, too.

Can I be honest? I am ALL about the Christmas desserts, but not all about Christmas Cookies.
I can’t believe I just said that out loud. It’s just my truth. Don’t be mad.

This thick, crunchy, chewy and oh-so-sweet Almond Toffee is my kind of Christmas-food.

It’s simple, it’s festive – delicious, of course – and it doesn’t require a candy thermometer. phewwww!

It’s about time we get down to it, wouldn’t you say? GO clock-out of work (do people still literally “clock-out”?) and pick up some shugah and buttah on your way home.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Come back tomorrow – I have something special for YOU!

XO

ENJOY!

  1. Love it – I do that too but the result? My kids now sing some songs in my version. Ooopsie…no cookies in your house but I am sure everyone is quite happy with this fantastic toffee around. yum

  2. I love salt/sweet combos and I LOVE LOVE LOVE that I wouldn’t have to mess w/ a candy thermometer because, ummm, well, I don’t own one! I’m definitely making some sort of version of this TODAY!

  3. Little kids just don’t appreciate their parents’ humour especially when it comes to their grandmoms (whether it’s Nana or Baba or Oma). As to the candy or cookies for Xmas, I still haven’t started making any of them but toffee topped with white chocolate and candy canes or cranberries are calling to me.
