What!? Still More Holiday Stuff???
It’s time to end my long-standing run as a delinquent parent during the holidays. I’ve read many posts of good parents who engage in festive activities and create great memories and traditions. Even I can be festive for once, right?
I decided to start by making candy apples. OK, I didn’t decide. Actually, daughter requested we follow a recipe she learned in Home Ec class and I finally got around to going to the grocery store.
We had tongue depressors from some old art project and used those instead of popsicle sticks.
We melted caramel candies to roll the apples in. I’m still getting flack for not remembering to buy the sprinkles. Anyway…
Next the apples were dipped, or to be more accurate, rolled in the caramel and set aside for the caramel to set. They tasted great!
An even bigger hit than the caramel apples was dipping pretzel sticks in the caramel. That was yummy!
Well, what were we supposed to do with all that left over caramel? I’ll worry about the liposuction after the holidays. The girls seemed to enjoy this activity but the boy was conspicuously absent from the festivities. Maybe I can get him involved in the next project. It doesn’t involve the computer so getting a hold of him is going to be tough. Do you have any traditional eats for the holidays?
