Fat Tuesday and Maple Snow Candy equals a great day!
Laissez les bons temps roule!
Let the Good Times Roll! Happy Mardie Gras everyone from Alaska! This Louisiana girl was determined to celebrate despite being so far away.
I made a king cake, and it turned out pretty well. I was impressed at least because I tend to have problems with yeast bread rising enough.
We made masks!
A got a hold of my camera and took a couple of pics of me. Not to shabby.

We got fresh snow today! A couple of inches I think, but it is so hard to tell here because it drifts around so much. But it was enough to do what I had been wanting to do for the past several weeks. We made Maple Syrup Snow Candy! So awesome. You may remeber this from the little house series. I boiled the maple syrup for about 15 mins, until my thermometer read about 220 degrees. Then we carried it outside to a fresh snow drift and poured....Ta da!
It hardens almost instantly in the cold snow and because a scrumptious treat.
A stick to your teeth treat
But the wind picked up again and we brought our yummy snack inside to finish
Happy Fat Tuesday everyone!
