My way through the  long weekend. 
It was chilly outside, 
but we were nice and  toasty inside
stuffing our bellies.

Made Maple Cranberry Syrup and Butter
Maple-Cranberry Butter:
1/2 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (no aunt jemimas! :)
1 cup butter, at room temp

To make the maple cranberry butter, combine cranberries and maple syrup in a saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently until the cranberries have softened and popped, about 5 minutes.
Let cool, then place in a large bowl with the butter. Beat with a wooden spoon until just combine, cover and set in the fridge until ready to serve
