My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
Do you buy in a lot of sweets/chocolates/biscuits etc for the Christmas holiday or do you prefer to make it? If so what is your favourite bought chocolates etc and what is your favourite homemade treat?
Yes, we do tend to buy chocolates and goodies for Christmas. We usually get the Christmas Hershey Kisses, the Christmas M&M's, my beloved cherry cordials, and some years, a Whitman's Sampler. My mom used to buy a 5 pound box of chocolates when I was kid, but no more. Can't deal with that much fat and sugar.
I bake pumpkin bread, and Christmas cookies for the holiday. This year, I'm also trying a new pumpkin choc chip muffin recipe. WE all get some candy in our stockings everyear, snickers, hershey santas, and peanut butter Christmas trees. We always have kisses and hershey miniatures in a dish out for everyone to enjoy.
I love the old fashioned Cream Drops. Every Christmas I have to buy several of them. Sometimes, they are hard to find here. I also like the Brach's candy nougat things that are soft peppermint with the tree in the middle.
There are a lot of extra treats that we do buy at Christmas; but probably just as many that we make ourselves. Every year I make 3 kinds of fudge and probably half a dozen different varieties of Christmas cookies. The fudge is definitely my favorite.
^Ah yes, creme drops! I totally forgot those! My mom HAS to have them in the house. A few years ago, we found cherry creme drops, and they are pretty tasty. I totally forgot to add sugar cookies, banana quick bread, and the peppermint nougats.
