Sweet memories.......

 I grew up in rural Vermont on a horse farm.  My sister's and I played in "the woods" daily with such imaginations....... we played "kitchen", in the caves, we stripped leaves off of ferns as we walked by. 


                                  ********* Such sweet memories.******** 

 We were mostly vegetarian  (we did have the occasional steak in summer and turkey at Thanksgiving) eating out of the three gardens my mom labored over.  She made fresh bread and how we longed for the white bread the neighbors had!  One Christmas my grandmother (Mum) made candy for us and my sister's and I had thought we had died and gone to heaven! 


                               I make it for my girls and they feel the same way.........










Chocolate Buttercrunch



On another note..........

We had a hoarfrost the other night.....it was so beautiful.  The thick fog in the freezing temperatures made for some very icy trees and patio furniture.









I am wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas....I hope you have a wonderful time with family and friends......


See you next time!
