'Tis the season

Tree trimming downtown Naples. I know it looks a bit odd - the blooming flowers, the swaying palm trees, the short-sleeved clad pedestrians, but I try to remember:
"Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas." Calvin Coolidge

Isabella,

It's all your fault! Your post yesterday has me craving Ben and Jerry's so I've bought a pint (which is softening as I speak).

But my fave was not there :O so I looked for your favorite...thought I'd try it because I love coffee and toffee...but it wasn't there either :O. So, I have "Magic Brownies." I hope it's good.

By the way, have you noticed that the package says a pint is 4 servings? Four??? I get a spoon and eat the whole thing...it's one serving for me! Which means about 1,200 calories and about two days worth of fat.

Thanks.

just kidding.....;P

4 servings? Who are they kidding?
And Magic Brownies are nothing short of magical! I really can't remember any flavor of B&J that I didn't like...No, really can't.

But you think you've got problems? I just made a batch of fudge (Rachel Ray's recipe from the Oprah show) for the "holidays", but they are staring at me and they look so darn cute (I substituted pecans for walnuts and dried cranberries for currants),I don't think they have a chance in heck of surviving that long;-)))
Happy holidays to us, Susan!
