Paperwhites in Jade Footed Bowl

I have actually been waiting eight weeks for this post. Dave had made several footed bowls as a test prototype. I planted paperwhite bulbs in the pots before Thanksgiving. I actually was hoping they would be a centerpiece at Thanksgiving but they were not ready.

NOTE: I did not actually take pictures at the time so I borrowed this.

I also wanted to post a recipe for Hot Buttered Rum. I made these at Thanksgiving. You can make them ahead of time and freeze them, perhaps for a holiday party...

1 stick butter
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. brown sugar

Blend all ingredients well. Roll into balls of 1 teaspoon. Freeze. Put ball in cup, add jiggers of rum. Fill with hot water. Add lemon slice. Balls can be kept in a Tupperware bowl in the freezer all winter. ENJOY!~

Dave is having surgery on Monday. We will keep you posted.

The paperwhites in the pots is a great idea! They would make a great gift...if you guys did a fair next year around Thanksgiving I'll be they'd be a hit!!!
You are making me want to come sit in front of your pellet stove in VT with one of your hot buttered rums!!!

What a great idea to roll the butter into balls.
Last year I made it and stored the butter in a jar. Kind of gross and un-appealing that way.
