Tis the Season To Be Nutty

Every Christmas I make and sell butter toffee and dipped pretzels. This year I decided I was going to take a break from the mess and stress of making my, soon to be, famous candy. However, people heard about it and were, lets say, less than happy to hear of the disappointing news. I felt like Santa, deciding to postpone Christmas. One person asked then another, then another, pretty soon I had orders and lots of candy to make. In a weekend, however, I managed to pull off 50 lbs of toffee, 30 lbs of pretzels and 10 doz. of my special buttery shortbread cookies, and that is only 1/4 of what I normally do each year. I'm glad I decided to do it though, it seemed to brighten up a lot of faces.

The bag turned out to be a FANTASTIC pet bed. Could not have done a better job if I had PLANNED it.
