I may have mentioned (honestly my head is rather muddled) about the fudge I was going to make. Talk about an easy recipe ... there are only TWO ingredients. Three if you count the walnuts I added.
This just might make that perfect Christmas gift for your neighbor. One 12 ounce package of Nestle chocolate chips and one can of sweetened condensed milk. That's it!! Instant fudge!
Heat on the stove VERY slowly, which is why you see the pan off the heat, until the chips are completely melted. Quickly stir in nuts if you wish, then pour it into a pan lined with either parchment paper or foil.
Cool in the fridge, then cut into squares. How simple is that? I have to say, and this actually was made BEFORE I lost my taste buds, it's pretty darn good!! Super simple!!
Remember the Walmart internet shopping trip? Just a note here .... if you think that will keep you from making impulse buys, you would be incorrect. Just before you hit the ORDER button, it asks if you need anything else ... followed by lots of pretty pictures.
Totally on impulse, I clicked on Pillsbury biscuits. What was I thinking? I hate these things. Maybe I was hoping they had changed in the last 20 years. They have not. Although I love the crispy outside, the flaky inside is still the same gooey stuff that won't soak up butter, letting it run all down your hand.
The taste wasn't anywhere near what I remembered, but then I do have a bad cold. These are definitely burying material. Or maybe I'll just throw them out back for the birds.
What about the fondue? Well ..... while perusing the website of Yankee Hill Cooking School, I spotted their next class .... FONDUE. I have very fond memories of going to the Jamestown Hotel (at least I think that's where it was) and having fondue with the Chance family many MANY moons ago. It was fabulous!
By the time I signed up, I was fourth on the waiting list. These classes are VERY popular, mostly because Chef Ron is a hoot. I called yesterday just to see where I was on the list. Chef Ron himself called me back and said YOU'RE IN!!!
I'm so excited!!! It's probably a skill I will never use the rest of my life, but it will be fun to learn the ropes anyway. Maybe I can surprise my RV group with a tasty treat. To be honest, it will surprise ME if I can create a tasty treat of fondue!! So dig out those old pots you have laying around!!
I actually felt good enough yesterday to finish up the January RV rally paperwork, including rig numbers, maps and all the stuff to allow 20 rigs to seamlessly enter the fairgrounds and be parked with a large party spot. Check that off the to-do list.
This morning I'm coughing a bit, stuffy head and all that, but think I'll be good to go to Bingo this afternoon. My plan is to get them through the first wave of 120 people, then sneak out the back door. I'll let you know how it goes.
SNEEZE!!!!! Bless me!! Cough, cough .......
