Well, not really ... but Frannie is movin' a little bit slow today.
My adult night out went ok, I think. Spirits we in abundance ... my memory of the late, late, late night is rather foggy, but I believe that my schmoozing skills were acceptable. My shameless flirting? Well that is another post all together.
Time for a nap.

1 cup chopped pecans
3 Tablespoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Rum to taste
Combine the vanilla wafer crumbs, 1 cup confectioners' sugar, pecans, corn syrup and vanilla in a bowl and mix well. Add just enough rum to make a mixture that adheres.
