Well, today we broke our first batch of Almond Roca! I have the best recipe for homemade Almond Roca, if I do say so myself. The best part is breaking it with a hammer after it's cooled. I probably don't need to say this, but it's a million times better than that "pink can" stuff (and not that hard to make, either). Anyway, I've been making more Roca and Fudge today. My family is pretty happy with me, to say the least. I also have dinner in the oven...beef stew...slow cooking it's way to dinner at 6pm. I have about two hours to work on a Christmas present that needs to be mailed early next week. I'm knitting as fast as I can!
Today's ornament is one Justine made at one of my Christmas Craft parties in 2003. I just think it's so cute...glue stains and all.
