Hello there,
     Well today will be short and SWEET!! I am working tonight teaching a class and have to pack so no time for fun!! Although when I get to work it is FUN!! Teaching and the women I teach just make me so HAPPY!! I love it!! Can't wait to see everyone tonight. Dusty is still sick although daddy is caring him to the doctor office today...so maybe relief will be in site for all of us. Poor little guy...but such a trooper in the same sentence. Today's recipe #7....oh my goodness already 18 days until Christmas, it seems to come so quick...anymore. When I was a child it seemed FOREVER!!! I just couldn't wait and I could never sleep on Christmas eve.....the excitement was too great. This year I have really been in the spirit unlike most other times.....even hubby is!! Alexis my oldest dd said "who is this man?" LOL!! It is nice to see him more spirited it has helped all of us. I am still wondering all the good things you in blog land might be doing...link me up.....I wanna see!!
Peanut Brittle
2 cups of sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
2 1/2-3 cups of peanuts (can use raw but need to add while reaching temp. of 290 degrees) I use dry roasted and add after temp. reached
1 Tablespoon of butter
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. baking soda

Combine sugar, corn syrup, and water in saucepan; cook over low heat until mixture comes to a rolling boil. Continue to stir until mixture reaches a temperature of 290 degrees on a candy thermometer or the soft crack stage.  Remove from heat working QUICK!! Add peanuts, vanilla, butter, salt, and baking soda. Having already greased cookie sheet spread brittle on to greased cookie sheet thinly as possible and allow to cool. Once cool break into pieces and place into containers for gift giving. A yummy quick gift, and as long as no one is allergic to peanuts...it a sure crowd pleaser. I have had this recipe since I was a child I would make it all the time, I even have a microwave version......excellent. Thanks so much for stopping by I have a surprise at the end of the recipes so stay tuned. Have a wonderful cooking day!!! Cyber Hugs, Dawn Gallop
