I wonder if anyone can tell me about making candy - fudge, divinity, things like that - early???.  I never make candy early and that turns the last couple of days into a frenzy.

Deer season started yesterday here in Nebraska so my daughter who runs a Bar and Grill in
a small town about 12 miles from me sreved a Hunters Breakfast. I made biscuits for her for
her Sausage gravy and biscuits I made 10 dozen biscuits. She also had scrambled eggs bacon
and sausage and French Toast for $6.00 all you can eat. We served 50 meals. Everyone really liked
it. There is 150 people living in the town but there are a lot of farmers around the countryside.

Not just baking but this is the season for soup.
I did make a cinnamon coffee cake this morning.  The house smelled so good and I had coffee cake for breakfast and will have some with some tea for a snack while watching TV tonight.
I just might make the tea an iced tea it is pretty warm still.

I enjoy cold weather and the baking that goes along with it.  We've been baking a lot more lately and are planning our holiday bake list.  And, I agree with Nikki about soup season.  I think I could eat soup every day, especially in cooler weather.

It is cold and raining here....supposed to rain ALL day.  Good time for me to get out my recipes and decide what and when I am going to make/bake.  I usually get my stack of plastic boxes and put the recipe in it, and anything I can safely store with the recipe so that I have at least half of the prep time taken care of.  When I am ready to go to work, I choose a box, gather whatever else I need to complete the project, and turn the oven/stove top on, and get to making/baking.  Note to Nancy G.....candy can be made ahead.  I've made it sometimes a week or two ahead of anything else.  That way I am not rushed or worried about it setting up.  I have also kept my candies in tin containers, and it lasts a long time!  Hope this helps you!

Thanks Darla --- you've given me some courage.  
Isn't it funny that peanut brittle is the most popular candy I make??
The fastest, the easiest and the cheapest .... and what people ask for the most.

Nancy, I make my candies up to one month ahead of time. I store them in tins in a spare bedroom that has the heat vents closed so it's pretty chilly in there. In fact, I have already made 2 batches of fudge, almond bark, and your peanut brittle. I'm getting ready to ship out a box to my son's former Navy squadron. They deployed 4 months early and will be spending Christmas in the North Arabian Sea again. My son is now stateside for 2 years, but his squadron buddies asked him when he left if I would send them some of my homemade goodies. How can anyone refuse that request???
