Tuesday Fudge Happenings

So the other night Keith asked me to please make some fudge. I hadn't made it in a long time so I decided to make some today. I am using my Mama's Drop Fudge recipe. It's the easiest fudge to make, but my favorite fudge is the one from the Hershey Cocoa box. I posted that recipe here already in another post. Here is Mama's Drop Fudge recipe:
Mildred's Drop Fudge
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup can milk (evaporated)
1/2 cup water
Let above come to a boil and cook until soft ball stage.
Add 1/2 stick butter and dash of salt. Beat with beater (mixer) until it loses its shine, add vanilla and continue beating. Drop by spoon onto wax paper.

***Shirla's Notes: Peanut butter can be added with the vanilla.

I hung some towels outside on my clothes line today. It is real hot here today so I know it wont take them to long to dry. I'm still waiting on Keith to add more lines to my poles so I can hang out everything at one time.

I also ran the vacuum today in the living room, but upright is broke so I had to use my little shop vac. Emma hates that thing! The whole time I was vacuuming she was barking and trying to bite the hose. It is so funny when she does that. She is all of 6 pounds and thinks she can kill the vacuum! lol

Dinner tonight will be pork something. lol I'm not sure how I want to cook the pork chops, I might just BBQ them (baked in the oven with BBQ sauce over them). I'll make a side dish and a veggie.

Shirla, stuff some this way too. The unwelcome visitor came yesterday. I'm seriously contemplating pulling one of the chocolate bunnies from Easter out of the freezer.

It turned out so good, it almost melted in your mouth! *Stuffing some into the couch for Gail and Erin*
