Oh the weather outside is frightful........... LOL - not frightful yet - but I did awake to our first snow. We have about 2" on the ground right now and maybe another inch coming. I know there are a bunch of folks east of our state that are supposed to get hammered with snow. I am so sorry!!!!!!
People here act like they have never seen snow before - on the first snowfall of the year. Wrecks and panic bread and milk shopping! CRAZY.
It will be gone in a couple days, so I think we will survive here. If the weather is nasty - well my suggestion is have some fun indoors. BAKE!!!
Here are a few old timey recipes that are both easy and pretty frugal. Most can be handled with what you have in the pantry. Stay warm and have fun.
Mix sugar and cocoa in a large saucepan. Add milk and butter. Stir well and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 1 1/2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Drop by teaspoon onto wax paper or parchment.
Delish and so very easy. The first cookie I ever made all by myself!!! I learned about these in 4-H. Still a favorite today!

So frightful weather or not - have fun. I love easy and old time recipes. They bring back a bit of childhood - and that is magical to me.
We are just a little over a week out on Christmas - so let's get baking. Share with a neighbor or a friend or family.
Stay safe and warm and MAKE MERRY!!!!
