December is chocolate making month. Made 2500 pieces this year (truffles, fudge centres, mints, nut clusters, etc.)  Still handing out boxes to friends and family.

So, where's the sign up list? :D

LOL! My distribution list is over 70 people at the moment, plus about 8 larger assortments going to holiday gatherings I attend. I just can't handle any more people on the list! ;)

But if you follow the 12 days of Christmas, Christmas isn't over until the 6th of  January, look at all that extra time you have to get it done j/k

Or, if you are Eastern Orthodox (my background), Christmas Day is on Jan 7th, so even more time. Still, I have to stop at some point or I will never have a life... ;)

taken out for a birthday dinner 20 oz Porterhouse at Lonestar.  Not sure what I will cook on Monday for my actual birthday, I think we have some crab legs in the freezer, and I don't mean that fake stuff.

I'm roasting some butternut squash, carrots, parsnips, onions and sweet potatoes for a yummy fall soup today and I thought of this thread...

Anyone else cooking today?

I made a giant pot of Portuguese Kale Soup, and I also made apple dumplings.

Was a good day.

Mmmm Caldo Verde is my favourite soup!

I baked on Sunday. Beet coffee cake. I use this recipe (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/6698/moms-zucchini-bread/), but I substitute beets for the zucchini. Surprisingly, the cake turns out brown, NOT red, though the batter is hot pink before it bakes. The cake has a hint of that earthy beet flavour, but not overpowering. Overall, very good!

I made a big batch of chili on Monday: Sauteed onion, garlic, sweet peppers, seared some stew beef, then threw it all in the slow cooker with chili powder, roasted paprika, cinnamon, cumin, and formerly-frozen roasted hot peppers from Trader Joe's, left it on high for about 9 hours until the meat was tender. Served with dollops of plain yogurt (in lieu of sour cream). My go-to cold-weather favorite.

Interesting!  We've grown beets before, but I don't care for them that much. I bet I would like this though!

Sunday over.

Homemade pancakes for breakfast, baked spaghetti squash for lunch, home made pizza for dinner. Oh yeah, we also carved pumpkins and roasted the seeds.

This year's chocolate making month (ChocMaMo?) is finally done, with over 3000 chocolates completed and more than half handed out. Phew, now I can relax.
Here's a picture of some of my truffles for you to enjoy.

LOL! Yes, that is a lot. That's why it takes a whole month to make that many. I don't know about a medal, but I certainly deserve the accolades I get from my friends and neighbours, who are the happy recipients of these.  ;D

And thanks for the compliment.
