The way I made it is: Bake or boil small potato then when it's done smash it then mix with powdered sugar, then roll it out and put peanut butter then you roll it up and let cool. I would use a small potato first less you're waiting to make a lot.

Old Fashioned Potato Candy
(makes 24 slices)

What You’ll Need:

1/2 cup leftover (preferably homemade) mashed potatoes
5 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons Peanut Butter (approximately)

What to Do:

Put mashed potatoes, vanilla, and salt into a bowl and add one cup of powdered sugar at a time, while kneading with your hands until mixture becomes a firm fudge-like consistency. You may need a tad more or less of the powdered sugar depending on how the mashed potatoes where made. Make adjustments depending on the texture of the mix, you’ll want it to be firm & dry enough to keep its shape but not too dry that would cause it to crumble.

Divide the mixture in half, sprinkle work surface & rolling pin with powdered sugar and roll the potato candy into a 1/4 inch thickness. Spread a thin, but not too thin, layer of peanut butter on top, about 1/4 inch. If you use too much it will squish out the sides when rolling it up.

Gently roll into a loaf and cover with plastic wrap or wax paper and chill for at least 1-2 hours hours before cutting into 1/2 inch thick slices (approximately 12 per loaf).

I don't put sugar in it just powdered sugar till it is not wet or moist. You will have to do it a few time but if you put too much it will just get hard but it never like just a cup or any measurement. Once the moist of the potato is not there then that's all the powdered sugar you need. Now you can add a little bit of vanilla if you like that.

Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given - when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes.

Anyone who believes that men are the equal of women has never seen a man trying to wrap a Christmas present.

The Mousie

A mousie got into a great Christmas pie,
Two little boys heard him, and then they did cry,
"O mousie! O mousie! come quickly away!
That pie is not for you,'tis for our Christmas day."

Twas Three Days Before Christmas

Paula Siminski-Christmas '97

T'was three days before Christmas and all through the house
Not a person was helping, not even my spouse…
The children were restless and what made it worse…
I at my computer typed nonsensical verse!

When what to my poor bloodshot eyes did I see,
But the calendar with three days left glaring at me!!
So off to the kitchen I flew like a flash…
Tore open the cupboards and made a made dash…

Baking my cookies and stirring my fudge,
Dozing by the sink till someone gave me a nudge!
I still have the present to wrap, and bows to tie
and the house is a disaster I thought with a sigh…

I looked 'round at the mayhem and thought to myself…
Next year will be different…I'll organize myself!!
I laughed when I heard the traditional phrase
That was made every year and forgot in just days…

So to all those who know me I have one thing to say…
Merry Christmas to all…
