It’s always best to make that at night or on a weekend. None of my elves like going home smelling like lard!

As usual, my elves were right. We should have started mixing up our flour and butter and sugar a long time ago. Our first Pride of Dakota Holiday Showcase is only 5 days away. And all of our goodies will be oh-so-fresh!

Because when the pansies are blooming on November 1 in North Dakota, it is sooooo hard to think Christmas!

    OH the work! A previous boss used to make me a batch of homemade caramels for the holidays. He is gone now, but I always think of him and miss his generosity during this season. Wish I was close enough to sample yours. Hug your mother for me. Sally Dalrymple
