Paper Stockings, Twitter, and Mint Fudge

I was finally back on Twitter tonight. Oh how I missed you all! Facebook just isn't the same, you know. I'll get back to why twitter is important but you have to hear the lead in first...

Anyhow, I spent today like many of my holiday the school doing crafts with the kids. What? you don't remember the gingerbread house craziness of 2 years ago? Shame, shame. (I tend to get myself into these things. I don't know how to say no.) This year I was making 2 foot construction paper stockings. I brought the paper home on Wednesday so I could trace and cut and have everything ready by this morning. I went in at 9 and was finally done at 1pm. Pfhew. But not done yet.

When I got home, I had to do laundry. HAD is the operative word there. One of my sons was wearing his last pair of clean underwear today. Also, I needed to get my first round of baking done. I usually bake for presents for a bunch of friends, including my bowling pals, and since bowling is on Tuesday I've just got to get it done. Right? Right!

So, one batch of banana/chocolate bread. DONE!
One batch of Mint Fudge. DONE!
One batch of Candied Pecans. DONE!
One batch of Strawberry Bread. DONE!

So, back to Twitter. I tweeted that I had done all of that and Katie asked for recipes. Posting recipes is something I can get behind.

However, since I did all of that today I'm dead tired. You're not getting them all.

But I can't let Katie down. And I can't lie to you all.

My recipe for Mint Fudge is not mine. It's Kirsten's. Go get it for yourself. Add a cup or so of Andes' Mints. You'll thank me later.

Granted, your butt will want to kick mine in January, but still.

Wow, the mint fudge and the chocolate banana bread recipes sound wonderful!

I'm new here, I just came over from Mom to the Screaming masses, and thought I would say hi.
