Two days left before Christmas and I still haven't finished 'the letter'.
I am so lame.
I'm supposed to be a writer for heaven's sake and I can't even finish a simple missive.
Okay...its not that simple. We've had a lot happen in the last year. AND I'm a perfectionist and I've gone over it 50 times to make sure its okay.
Then I'll find a mistake and rewrite the whole paragraph.
I really need to get a life.
The problem is now I've printed off so many drafts I don't think I have enough ink left to print the letters.
Brilliant, huh?! Of course its the perfect excuse.
'I'm sorry your card and letter is so late. My OCD tendencies got out of control.'
I'm sure that'll go over real well with the relatives.
Not all is lost. I have been soing some worthwhile things this week.
Like making these little beauties. (the picture doesn't do them justice.)
I promise to share the recipe with you, if you promise to let me know what you think of them. My kids, parents, in-laws and I all think they're heavenly.
Of course it could be just us...
Let me know.
1 bag butterscotch chips
1 cup peanuts
1 to 2 cups chow mein noodles
Melt butterscotch and then dump the peanuts and chow mein noodles in. Mix it all together and drop by spoonful onto wax paper. Let them harden and then snarf 'em. They'll go fast.
Merry Christmas! :)
