Everyone loves fudge.  Well, at least I do.  I believe this recipe is a Paula Deen recipe, and I enjoyed making it almost as much as my husband enjoyed eating it.  Seriously, he barely left any for the rest of us.  It tastes a lot like a brownie, so I call it Brownie Fudge.  You can substitute the chocolate to whatever type of chocolate you like.  I used the Hershey's brand.  mmmm...  

I haven't tried this recipe yet.  It was on the back of a flour bag and I needed space so I threw away the bag and took a picture of the recipe.

Home/Shopping Tips

Obviously when we go to the store to buy bread and milk, we want the freshest available, so when we look at the date of the milk, we will already choose the milk that will expire the latest.  Unless you live in my house, then the gallon will be gone in a matter of a day or two at the latest, and it would never meet the expiration date anyway.  But how do you know which bread is the freshest?  Apparently, bread is delivered to the store five times a week, and you can look at the tie used on the bread to indicate the freshest loaf.  Monday is blue, Tuesday is green, Thursday is Red, Friday is White, and Saturday is yellow.  Obviously, if it is Sunday, you want a Yellow tab/tie because Blue would indicate the loaf is close to a week old. YUCK! 

I have read that this is a great stain remover.  I haven't had the opportunity to try it out, and I'm very hopeful I won't have to, but living with three children, and a husband that doesn't always think about cleanliness...  Well, it's inevitable.

The Best Potato Soup Recipe

This Recipe is floating around FB somewhere.  They all say "Share this so it will be posted to your timeline."  Well, where the heck does it go when you are looking for it?  Somewhere ELSE in cyber space, never to be heard from again, so I'm posting it here for my reference, though if you would like to try it out, by all means, do so.  This is a family favorite, and even my husband (who is usually skeptical when it comes to eating leftovers) will fight to take some to work the next day.
