with rain on the way to change to snow flurries tonight. Flurries I can handle, freezing rain and inches of snow NO!
Sticking to my promise that I was through Christmas shopping I took a huge bag of clothing, shoes and books to Good Will. I ventured no further even though Good Will is situated right in the heart of the shopping area. I have to call a halt sometime. I have spent way more this year than I planned. I am helping our economy to recover; that is what I have been telling myself. One good thing in my favor is I pay cash when I shop so no big credit card bill after the 1st of the year.
I am getting ready to start my candy making. The first thing I am making is White Marshmallow Candy. This candy is luscious.
Marcia gave me this recipe a long time ago.
- 2 lbs white bark (I never have white bark so I use Nestle’s white chocolate chips)
- 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 2 cups dry roasted peanuts
- 3 cups crisp rice cereal
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows (the colored ones make this candy look festive)
Melt bark and peanut butter together in microwave in a large bowl. Stir every minute until melted. Add nuts and cereal to the melted mixture. Stir in marshmallows. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper and let cool. Freezes well so you can make this way ahead.
My sister has asked that we all say a prayer for an 11 year old boy in WV who is in a wheelchair. He is being hospitalized today with critical liver problems. I am not at liberty to divulge his name because of confidentiality.
“Our Father in heaven, please be with this child today. Hold his hand, be with his family, and keep them all in Your care. Please heal his body if it be thy will. In Jesus name I pray, and for His sake.” Amen. Thank you.
