    Hmmmmmm….Mr. Mallet, what do you think of more stories about Miss Plainwell and girls? I think you should do more of that…..It seems like an interesting vein to mine…Nothing against Cauldwell and Frazz of course….But girls have stories, too….

    Metamorphosis is not dormancy. A lot is going on at the cellular level.

    There’s that snit word again. I gotta clean my glasses more frequently.

    A very, very, simple recipe for maple fudge.

    From: “The Laura Secord Canadian Cook Book”
    Prepared by the Canadian Home economics association
    Published by McClelland and Stewart Limited Toronto/Montreal
    ISBN: O-7710-4080-6

    Maple Fudge

    Grease an 8 inch square pan.

    In a saucepan bring to a boil

    2 cups maple syrup
    3/4 cup cream (10%)
    2 tablespoons butter

    Boil, uncovered, until a drop in cold water forms a soft ball (236° to 238° F.)
    Cool to lukewarm without stirring (110°).
    Beat until creamy.
    Turn into buttered 8-inch pan.
    Cut into squares.

    Notes from me.

    Use real maple syrup, or you’ll be very disappointed. It’s expensive, but worth it.
    10% cream is also known as 1/2 & 1/2 and cereal cream; the 10% is the milk fat content.
    Use butter and not margarine where butter is called for. Again, it’s the taste.

    It ain’t simple if you make the maple syrup yourself, starting with cutting the firewood the previous year before.

    I usually hear Hissy Fit, not snit. I’ve never actually heard anyone except one person say it. And even with her it sounded wrong. There are several other phrases people use for such a thing. What are other people’s favorite?

    Good thing she’s not a sweetgum tree. That’s the bane of lawn care.

    And having carried both the firewood and the sap uphill. Through the snow. Barefoot. Both ways.

    Around here as a subject it’s hissy fit, as a preposional direct object it’s usually “throwing a fit” or “having a fit”
    Though snit can be used to describe a state of being/mood as in “What’s wrong with her? She’s just IN a snit today.”
