Luke 2: 9-14
Wednesday, December 22, 2010
I thought these words from the Steven Curtis Chapman song " Coming Home for Christmas" were fitting for Aunt Mary.
I'm going home for Christmas, and I'm going home to stay
I'm going home for Christmas and nothing's gonna keep me away
I'll be with the ones I love to celebrate the Savior's birth
I'm going home, home for Christmas
As we sing Joy to the World I can't help thinking
Of the joy that's shining in her eyes right now
And though our hearts still acche, we know that as we celebrate
She's singing with the herald angels and heaven's glowing on her face
She's home for Christmas and nothing could've kept her away
She'll be face to face with Jesus, as we celebrate His birth
And this gift will be worth more to her than anything on earth
She's home, she's home for Christmas
She is home
She's home for Christmas
Farewell, Mary...you will be missed! Enjoy your first Christmas with Jesus!

1 C light Karo
2 and 1/4 C packed brown sugar
1-14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 C butter
1 t. vanilla
buttered 9x9 pan
Melt the butter over med/low heat in a medium size saucepan. Add brown sugar, salt and Karo and mix well. Add the sweetened condensed milk and stir again until it's mixed in. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until it comes to a boil. Keeping it at a fairly rolling boil, set your timer for 12 minutes, and keep stirring...don't let up the whole time. Talk to someone on the phone to pass the time or listen to Christmas music. No need for a candy thermometer. When the timer goes off, hang up the phone, add the vanilla and pour the delicious golden goodness into the buttered pan. Lick out the pan and spoon. Then let it cool for several hours. Cut in small squares or rectanges. Dip in melted chocolate or wrap in wax paper squares. I hadn't made caramels in several years, and these came out pretty much the perfect consistency both times.

I made these yesterday, they are so easy! You put a rolo candy on each small pretzel, put it in a 350 degree oven for 2 minutes. Take them out, move them to a sheet of wax paper and push an m&m in it right away. Let them cool. Salty and sweet. Quick, easy, cute and really yummy!
