First, because it amuses me so, Richard has created a Sci Fi Movie Generator. Now you, too, can create your very own scripts worthy of the high quality production of the Sci Fi channel movies. You are welcome.
It's been just another day - a little cold, a little grey and dreary. You know, the usual. I went to work and picked up a bag of cat food on the way home because we ran out a few days ago and all the bowls were down to crumbs. Worse yet, you could actually *see* the bottom in some of them, which in the mind of cats constitutes a full scale emergency, requiring waking me up at all hours of the night to holler about it. I also swung through Costco to pick up a gift for the gift exchange we'll be doing at the office dinner tomorrow night, and stopped by a few other places since I was in the area, looking for one more thing for Richard (alas, I did not find it). Then I went home and filled up the bowls before the cats trampled me and ripped open the bag themselves (the fact that there was still kibble in the bowls, albeit a small amount, is irrelevant to the fact that they were STARVING).
While at CostCo I saw a kit to make a gingerbread house, and since I remember that my niece had so much fun doing the Halloween one when we visited them back in October, I had to buy the Christmas one for her too. I dropped it off at my parents' house, along with the recorder music, picked up the music that my sister and I are going to be singing for the late service on Christmas Eve, and then eventually made it back home in time to wolf down dinner and get busy with the knitting, which is going slower than I'd hoped, but which I still have every intention of finishing on time. We will not speak of the fact that the edging is going to take a millenium to complete. Leave me my delusions.
Anyway. In the spirit of sharing, and also because the regular place I post recipes appears to be broken (the existing files are visible, but I cannot edit any of them, nor can I apparently post anything new. Grumble), I give you my recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge. I have no idea where I got this recipe, or when - it was in the book where I scribble down recipes to keep for later, but it's far from the last recipe in the Desserts section, so it could have lurked there for years.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 Tbsp light corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine milk, chips, peanut butter and corn syrup in saucepan. Cook over medium heat until chocolate is melted.
Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Pour into well-greased 8"x8" pan.
Chill until firm. Cut into squares (I do 64 pieces because this stuff is rich). Store in fridge.
Tis the season for Holidailies
