Skull & Bones

Yesterday, I had a great day writing recipes. Best part, the kitchen was cleared down by three and I was showered and taking notes at the kitchen table, by four.

Other best part, I get to do it all over again, today.

I love that.

Know what else I love? My husband. So after food writing yesterday, I made him these skull & bone chocolates with crushed candy canes.

So fun.

    Good morning, Wonder Woman! Is it as brutally cold there as it is here? Good day to stay in and work on stuff. Have fun with baking; I'll have fun with photography :)

    1. That is a good idea, I didn't think of that. Might have to send Tim with a bag, when he gets to game in-person again.

  8. Those look cool! How in the world do you find time to bake and cook so much? I'm lucky to even get slop on the table for dinner before I go to work!

    1. Hi Sherry - Because this is my work for the day. This is my writing, the same way your fiction is your writing. Only, we get to eat my writing (most days).

      Plus, I don't think of it as slop, lololol. Though I have made a few suppers that looked like it.

    1. Hey Norma. Your email got deleted when I had to reboot my program. I sent William an email to send to you. When I comment on your posts, I keep getting these weird bounce-backs. Not a big deal, the comment shows up, but wanted to let you know.

  10. I'm curious, what kind of look does Tim give you when you call him your honey bunny smoochie face? :)

    1. We both are super duper lucky to have each other.

      Got the candy canes on clearance after Xmas. A quarter for the pack. Not too shabby.

      How goes your writing today?

  17. How on earth did you make those?! Inquiring minds want to know!

    1. We bought skull & bone ice cube molds, awhile back at the Halloween store. Just melted the chocolate and added the crushed candy cane. Then popped them in the freezer, as we like to eat them frozen.

      Also the Dollar Tree sells similar molds during Halloween.

      Thanks for stopping, by.
