She taught my kids how to make apple smiles (apple slices, peanut butter and marshmellow), which my son insisted on making the next day, only so he could eat marshmallows for breakfast.
They also dipped cheesecake squares in rick dark chocolate, and decorated those with swirls of white.
And just for fun we all made butter molds.
Christmas dinner brought more salmon (hard to see, by my nephew put a peace sign with the extra dough on top of the baked salmon, over ruling his wife's suggestion of the middle finger),
pork roast, two types of cranberry sauce and my first ever green bean casserole. It didn't come out so good, but was so easy to make I might try again in a smaller dish (the only ingredients were bread crumbs, butter and pepper, heavy cream and blue cheese -
and of course green beans). I swear I've never seen so much homemade candy: rocky road, peppermint/pistachio/cranberry/white chocolate bark, two types of chocolaty toffee truffle goodies, beautiful patterned chocolate peanut butter bark, maraschino cherry chocolate, and several types of cookies, including the "million dollar peanut butter cookies." These won the Pillsbury baking contest million dollar prize, and are certainly good, but a million dollars? And of course since my MIL made them she had to drizzle melted peanut butter chips and chocolate on them.
Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. We're of to enjoy the new snow and give the kids their first taste of skiing.
