Now that the shows are done, I can finish preparing for the holidays. All I have left to do, as far as candy and cookies are concerned, is peanut butter balls and dipped pretzels. Yea!


  1. Ok, I need the recipe for the almond strips and aren’t you forgetting your mint/chocolate bars??? They all look really good!

  2. Oh my! You have been busy and they all look yummy!

  3. Susan, here’s the link to the Almond Strip recipe…I only made one change…I substitute vanilla extract for almond in the was too much almond flavor for my taste.

  4. Yes, Lynda, now I wore myself out…time for a nap, but I have other things to do….

    *That looks so yummy!

    Well we had the appointment with the ENT today and Barry has totally lost hearing in his left ear. Hearing aids will not do. Dr Dolgin gave him a nose spray that he hopes will stop the congestion and drainage. Wants to see him in 4 months. He also has a deviated septum but past telling us that’s what he has, nothing was mentioned about correcting it.* * * *I am concerned because Barry seems to be forgetting a lot about his health. Says he’s had ear problems since he was a kid, but that he really hasn’t had problems with hearing and infections much. Kathy, he has had problems with his ears ever since I’ve known him it has just exacerbated over the last year to the point where this one keeps getting infected, but today it was clear. I will be calling tomorrow about a referral back to Dr Abraham, his pulmonary doctor to see if he might do a sleep study, I think if he was on CPAP he would rest better and those air passages would stay open. Plus I think he’s not getting enough oxygen. I would be much better off if I didn’t know so much about the medical stuff. Ignorance would be bliss right now. He says he feels sick at his stomach all the time and limits his eating. He has always had a great appetite, even back when he was drinking. I may be repeating myself with some of this, I catch myself doing that frequently anymore. Just overlook it.

    Hope like you say, you can settle in and continue getting ready for Christmas and I know that you have a birthday coming too. Enjoy your baking and doing the fun creative things in the kitchen that you like.

    Love you, Kinny*

  6. OMG I need you at my house to make all these for me, yummy yummy
