I used this recipe from allrecipes.com, left out the nuts as didn't have any in the cupboard that day and used the mint chocolate chips from the gift basket I won last week. Family says two thumbs up.
All the Christmas gifts have been purchased (I might get one more for hubby as thought of something last night), house decorated, and turkey is tucked away in the freezer, purchased at .95 cents a pound utility, of course.
Our rain did finally stop, the State of Emergency is officially over and roads reopened - thank goodness. Most businesses that were evacuated but not damaged lost two days of trading. Some homes were damaged but will get some financial relief from the Province (not much but something). We are under a boil water advisory due to all the water issues of late in our town reservoir so we have been boiling up large batches of water and filling two litre pop bottles so they are handy on the counter - no bottled water here
Off to make some blackberry jam this afternoon with Mom. I have never made it but today is the day I learn - plus free up some space in the freezer from all the frozen berries. I hope everyone has a nice relaxing weekend!
