I love a Martini...gin and 3 olives...just one and I am done.
“I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three I'm under the table,
after four I'm under my host.”
~ Dorothy Parker ~
Last time we were sharing the dipped fruit recipe...today we are making my Mother's Rum Balls.
I have made them every year for the past 30 years.
They are well received and a much anticipated sweet treat...
These are quick and easy...
Mother's Rum Ball Recipe
In a food processor grind a 312g. box of Vanilla Wafers and 1 cup of pecans.
Place in a large bowl
add 1 cup of icing sugar
3 tablespoons of Caro Syrup
1 1/2 tablespoons of cocoa
1/2 cup rum
Mix together and roll into small bite sized balls.
Roll in icing sugar or cocoa.
Store in airtight containers.
Place in pretty containers for gift giving.
(don't tell Mother I am sharing her recipe yet again...she likes to keep these family recipes a secret!)
We bought a wee tree for the front porch.
We can look out the living room window and see the little white fairy lights twinkling.
The sunlight warmed a very frosty day...
we scavenged some boughs from the fallen limbs on the Golf Course for the porch.
I am reading this novel...the first in a series and am enjoying it very much.
We went to see our darling grand daughter in her school Christmas Play.
All the students in her private school were in the production.
From the preschoolers and their rendition of the "Teddy Bear's Picnic" to the grade 4's
it was an uplifting and joyous evening.
We gave Isla a pink rose after it was over and she just beamed...
our little Miss shined on stage...
she remembered her lines
and best of all she smiled and waved to all of us!
Members of the audience were oohing and awing when she waved and Mr. HB and I wanted to stand up and shout...
"That is OUR Grand Daughter!"
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time out of your busy day to say hello.
