On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to meeeee... Two turtle Haffies...

On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to meeee... Two turtle Haffies:

Recipe for Turtle Haffies:

1 large Haffie (if you only have small Haffies, use two)
Pecans from 1 tree
Eleventeen pounds of chocolate
1 teraflop of caramel

Melt caramel over a triple boiler. Add pecans, including shells. Spoon caramel/pecan mixture onto Haffie and drizzle with melted chocolate. Garnish with lamb's quarter, if desired. Bon appetit!

And a Haffie in a pear treeee.

No Haffies to be seen here. Move along.

In other news, hubby and I hauled to a local state park for a trail ride on Christmas Day. Most of the trails are down in gorgeous pecan bottoms with lovely sandy footing, so we had a great time trotting and cantering through the woods. Red was his usual superstar self, and Paddy was quite brave and sensible. He was very ratable on the canters, and is pulling leads consistently when asked. Hooray!

Paddy looks cute at the trailer while Red explains to him about personal space.

Hubby and Red at a 200 year old pecan tree. Impressive tree!

We switched horses halfway through since Red was getting a bit tired and I'm lighter than hubby is. Reddums finished strong and hubby had a great time riding Paddy.


  1. "1 teraflop of caramel" - true dat! Merry Christmas and have wonderful and bright 2014 :)

    1. It's hard to come up with Haffie-sized measurements of ingredients, so I'm glad you liked the teraflop of caramel! Thank you for the Christmas wishes, and Merry Christmas to you and yours as well!
