And so it begins - the final push towards Christmas.
I had marked this week as "baking week" ... I also realized I have not mailed out my Christmas cards!!! (dear god in heaven what was I thinking??!!) So today I will write up the few cards I plan on sending and get them into the mail......... and I think I will wrap up some gifts.
We are going up to Ottawa on Saturday to do a "Santa run" to eldest daughter...and on Monday doing a "Santa run" to Montreal to youngest daughter and the kids....... I was so damn organised until I realized Christmas is NEXT week!! So besides cards - I think I should wrap up some gifts today.
Then maybe I will get some baking squeezed in..............
Yesterday I made some Scottish shortbread...............
and something called Orgasmic Fudge......... it's layered maple fudge.
First layer is maple fudge - then you cover it with Caramilk bars
and then add a final layer of maple fudge. They tell you to work fast as the fudge hardens quickly - they weren't kidding!!! I couldn't spread the top layer nicely..... and landed up buttering my fingers and pressing it down.
We sampled it last night - after all - we had to make sure it was edible - wouldn't want to serve guests inedible fudge right??? LOL and it was quite good..........though I think I prefer plain maple fudge - forget the chocolate and caramel.
