After finishing the English Toffee and Candied Nuts, I officially closed my kitchen until Christmas morning! Everything is crossed off my list.
I decided to put the "sweetest" thing in my life right now in the middle of all my Sweets! Tristan is 6 months, and looks so much like his mommy and our oldest daughter. It's like looking at baby Jill.
Our family has been enjoying my Mother's English Toffee for as long as I can remember. After her passing in 1991 I took the torch and have been making it every year. You can tell from the recipe it's been around a long time.
The sun was shinning so it's was the perfect day to make the toffee. I made it one year when it was raining...and it would not set up. But today it turned out perfect.
The recipe makes enough for each family to have a small can, and the rest we will enjoy Christmas Day.
I will open the Kitchen Christmas morning to make my Stuffing. (My daughter is doing the Turkey) and the pumpkin pie for Kaleb (home from college) and the 4 layer Chocolate Torte with chocolate mousse filling and whipped cream frosting.
Now for that coffee and dive into my new John Grisham book, The Street Lawyer. My kitchen doesn't get closed down very often, but I'm ready for my comfy rocker.
