I can't focus lately. All my thoughts seem to be about how I haven't seen Nathan in 8 1/2 months and how he will be here, right in front of me, in about 2 weeks. I am so excited and the butterflies have already set up camp in my belly. I am in a sort of limbo right now. He is so close to coming home, but not quite close enough for me to start preparing everything for his arrival. So, what am I doing??? Taking up residence in the kitchen!
Oh, and just a little disclaimer. Since I am so out of it, my posts may be a little loopy. Not much I can do about that! :) Hopefully you can bear with me!
One of my greatest memories of the holidays growing up has to be my mom making candy. Every holiday season, no matter how busy she was, she would get in the kitchen and make yummy candy. She makes the BEST butter crunch, which I really need to try my hand at. She showed me how to do it a few years back, but I have misplaced the recipe.
In addition to her butter crunch, she would make Martha Washington's. My favorite are the ones with coconut; they remind me of little Mounds candy bars. So delicious! You could add just about anything you want in these. Thanks for a yummy recipe, Mom!
