Well, not a whole lot has been going on in our household as of late. Jackson got some random virus resulting in a nice mix of puking sessions nearly every night and diarrhea during the day (did I mention this lasted for a WEEK AND A HALF?!) Poor poor kid. Our house was not pretty. I was also not pretty. I was sleep deprived and it was all I could do to even get a shower. I think I washed all of the bedding in our household more this week than I have our entire marriage. You know, since the nightly ritual was he’d throw up in his crib, then throw up in bed with us, then throw up in the spare bed. Good news is the little J man is feeling great now and life is back to normal. Such a relief! It was hard to see him so sick.
Since we haven’t done much due to the aforementioned plague, I thought I’d post a recipe for the best homemade hot fudge I've ever tasted. Chocolate makes everything better! This recipe is courtesy of my sister who got it from her sister-in-law. We had it on brownie sundaes tonight and it really is SO good and easy to make. Try it!
1 12-oz package good semi-sweet choc. chips
1 c. butter
2 2/3 c. evaporated milk
4 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Melt chocolate chips and butter together. Blend in remaining ingredients except vanilla. Boil 10 min. stirring constantly. Take off heat and add vanilla. *You can refrigerate any leftovers and use it again later!
