Today we made truffles for the first time. They were super easy and very yummy. We got the inspiration from this adorable book. The end papers have terrific recipes. We also tried another recipe for Chocolate Salami, really! It has mini marshmallows, raisins and broken butter cookies in it, then you melt chocolate over the dry goods, roll into a log and chill. Once it has chilled you slice it like and it should look like a chocolate version of salami. Tonight we watched a movie called ‘Blizzard’. It was good and had lots of real reindeer in it. I don’t remember it ever being in the theater.  What I loved most about the movie was the period clothing. Part of the story takes place in the 30’s and the young girl has some amazing skating outfits. *This was a new favorite quote from the movie.
