PANETTONE AND TOFFEE
Trader Joe's had single servings of the Italian Panettone Classica. The label says "A perfect little panettone to eat all on your own, (or share if you must) HaHa. I did share mine with my dearest, but he doesn't have quite the love of it I do. He had not tasted it, and I didn't want to buy the large one if he didn't like it. (However, I could eat a large one by myself) I thought my little "baker" would enjoy a piece too. He looks so cute sitting on my counter. I just love him.
I've been fighting a cold the past few days, but feel so much better today I decided to get my chocolate grated for my toffee and get a batch made for Christmas.
Saturday is a "Girls Day Out" shopping trip with my daughters and granddaughters at the outlets in Carlsbad down by San Diego. We did it last year at it was so much fun we decided it would be a good Christmas tradition.
This afternoon we have our Christmas Party at the Clubhouse for the residents of Villa Ramona. I hear the menu is tamales, rice, beans and lots of side dishes and desserts. All catered so the residents can just come and enjoy.
In the count down to Christmas I want to keep my heart and mind focus on the REASON FOR THE SEASON. The incredible GIFT that began in a manger and was finalized on the cross.
