Christmas Miracle Fudge
It's miraculous that I even got a resemblance of fudge.
This post is going to be shared with, Inspire Me Monday/Friendship Friday, Creative Friday, Friday Finds, Making Your Home Sing Monday, Masterpiece Monday, TOO Cute Tuesday, Link Your Stuff , Tuesday Table, The Gathering Spot, Full Plate Thursday, Link Party Palooza, and Strut Your Stuff
It is the old fashion kind that you have to stir at the end to loose the gloss.
First I burned the first batch, so I had to start over.
Second, it did not want to cook to the soft ball stage, maybe my candy thermometer is broken. So I took a chance after cooking for while, and let it cool for the final mixing stage.
Then I mixed for a really long time, remained glossy, so I gave up on it for while.
Then I thought I would reheat it, a layer of fudge just got hard on the bottom of the pan.
I finally gave up, salvaged what I could, put it in the fridge, and went to bed.
In the morning, I was surprised to find that my fudge actually looked and tasted like fudge.
It's a miracle!

Minnesota Wild Rice Griddle Cakes
I got a package in the mail the other day addressed to this blog. I was confused because I wasn't expecting anything. Turns out I got four boxes of Minnesota Wild Rice Griddle Cakes.
Then I remembered that I husband was in Hy-Vee at the time they were sampling this product. He told the vendor that he would help promote the product.

So far you can only buy them at Hy-Vee stores in the mid-west or Chef Central in New Jersey.

So I thought I would try to make pot stickers again. Last time they fell apart. This time around, it turned out a little better. The dough was a little thick and chewy, but overall still pretty good.
