Nice day off. I got the kitchen ready for a bunch of cookie-making. And just to prime the pump, I made -wait for it - sugarplums. Believe it - freakin' sugarplums. I have no idea if these are indeed what danced in wee children's heads while waiting for Santa to arrive but I can tell you that they'd make most children sleep pretty well (they have some alcoholic content).

If I daresay it, these sugarplums are basically small fruitcake-like balls only without any cake. Just fruit. Fruit, nuts, a bit of rum and some sugar and cocoa for rolling the sugarplums in. Excellente!

Since I was in the mood, I updated the Society for the Protection and Preservation of Fruitcake web site. Added my 2005 recipe, updated the links page etc etc etc. Tis the season.

Wondering what the rest of the wine-blogging world chose for Derrick's hosting of Wine Blog Wednesday? Better go here and plan on spending some time checking out the cool results. Many many entries and lots of interesting photos of pretty labels. Thanks for all the hard work putting this together Derrick.

Here's my entry with three lovely labels:

The weather guy tried, in the way-too-early and dark hour this morning, to convince me that we have had fewer than normal heating degree days so far this year. All I can say to that is "damn, it is cold!"
