And The Captain is home with what seems to be the flu…chest congestion, sore throat, and low-grade fever. He feels like crap. And today is the first day of his 13-day vacation. That sucks! He couldn’t get warm so I lit a fire, and now it’s nice and toasty in the living room.
This weather put me in the mood to cook. I’ll be cooking dinner in a couple of hours, but earlier I made…wait for it…wait for it…Maple-Pecan Fudge! Oh my! I found the recipe online yesterday (I wish I could remember where), and it sounded so good. So while I was at the grocery store this morning, I got what I needed to make it. Actually, the original recipe was Maple-Walnut Fudge, but I prefer pecans.
Here’s the recipe:
(Click on it and you should be able to print it and be able to read it.) I got to the recipe thru Mandy’s Recipe Box. If you’re not familiar with Mandy’s blog, you must go there. I spent a loooooong time there yesterday reading through recipes and printing like a mad woman. The recipe link was there in one of the entries where everybody links-up.
Does anybody love these as much as I do?
I pour in the boiling water and let it sit for about 20 minutes. Then I eat all the noodles and leave the broth. But the broth is good if you’re sick with a cold or sore throat; I just usually don’t drink it after the noodles are gone. The Roasted Chicken Flavor is my favorite and The Captain likes the spicy-hot ones.
The cut on my hand feels and looks much better today. I’ll be spending the next couple of days trying to stay clear of Mr. Sickie because I sure don’t want what he’s got. When I went to the store this morning, I loaded him up with cold medicines, Gatorade, Chicken Cup-O-Soup, and some Little Debbie’s Brownies shaped like footballs. He was most pleased to see those brownies in the bag when I got home. He’s so easy to please.
I’m outta here to go play nursie. Bye.
