So just finished up my 3rd attempt at making Fudge. The first time, I discovered how Hershey's makes it's syrup. The second time, the middle was gooey, this time.....er.....not sure, waiting for fudge to cool and set.
....hmmmmm.....still don't know what 'sheen' is, as when it looses that, is indicator to stop beating and pour into pan....
..On the upside, have emptied about 1/2 a liter of milk into saucepan, and will be enjoying some pretty amazing hot cocoa/chocolate in just a few! Aren't you jealous now?!?
...yeah, I wouldn't be either.
N-E-Way, Marius was home for like 2 whole weeks for Christmas and New Year. Was so nice to have my little family all together for the holidays, this year was especially nice, since Marius' 2 brothers and 1 sister were all together for the first time in over 13 years.....there's a lot to be thankful for.
We spent more than we should have on food - of which I cooked - I lived in the kitchen beginning Christmas Eve and ending the day after New Year! I was T.I.R.E.D.!
But as I said, it was totally worth it. Money is made to be saved and to be spent, especially on special occasions such as this was for us! Now if MY family would have been able to have been here as then too, well, I think I would have died right there, flown up to the pearly gates and asked St. Peter to pinch me to make sure I hadn't dreamed it all up!
...wooops, I hear the milk hissing at me......until later....
