In The Kitchen Today


I spent the day in the kitchen making some yummy things.




As I worked I had Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet
blasting through the kitchen! ha.




Not only did I have sugar plums dancing in my head,




 I had Sugar Plum fairies twirling around the room! ha.



And even though all the men were gone for the day,



I did have some sweet furry company!

Chocolate Peanut Clusters recipe is HERE.

    3. . . . . . has that green bowl got my name on it? If so, handle it with great care. *

    4. Your name is taped to the bottom of it. :)
      I do handle it with great care! Especially since I found out what they sell for on ebay! ha. But it isn't enjoyed shut in the cupboard, so it shall be used. ha.

  2. Hey - those kitties look like their own version of chocolate peanut clusters! They are exactly the right shades - ha!
    They look so cosy all huddled on the mat.
    Love your birdy plate and those clusters look delish!.

  9. Isn't it great when you have a day to yourself? Even if it's "working" in the kitchen, it's still fun for some reason. If you're like me, it's because it's such a rare occurrence, and we don't get many of them! Don't you just love this time of year?

    1. Yes, some critter is always under foot! And if I'm cooking a little crowd gathers. ha.

  18. I love how your cats, though all different colors, possess a family resemblance.
    Don't you wish people could embrace the varied colors of our race rather than allowing the differences to cause divisions?
    I think we could learn a lot from the animal kingdom in that regard.

    1. We could learn a lot from animals, I think! :)

      Charcoal and Cinder were in different litters from the same mom, Velvet. And Marmalade and Charcoal had different moms but the same dad!
