For those of you who were becoming concerned about the recent toffee crisis, I am happy to report that last night’s batch looks like it will be acceptable for passing out to our friends and family. Maybe not the best I’ve ever made, but I doubt many people other than Matt and I will realize it.

And for the record, I do think the old thermometer was wonky. I picked up a new one on the way home from work yesterday and used that for the successful batch. So all is once again right with the world.

We’ll finish decorating the tree in a little bit here, but we have a Christmas party tonight at our friends’ house, so photos might not appear until tomorrow.
