Candy

Thank you cards, cats, cats playingThe last post I wrote July 1993, was a tough one for me, but I got through it. I appreciate all that have liked and left me heart warming comments on that post and sharing their memories too, as well as tweeted and shared via other mediums (Please feel free to continue the sharing). I encourage that! Again, I appreciate you all.

Today I thought I would bring some levity back and another recipe that is so simple a Monkey can do it.

Ask yourself, what kid doesn’t want candy when offered candy.

One could say my Dad had a sense of humor or trickery within him. I think I was just plain naive as a young child.

Dad was cooking something in the kitchen one day when we kids were little, we asked what was that? He said, CANDY!

We go CANDY! We want candy!

You think that I being the eldest would have caught on by now. The Hershey candy bar experience that was not Hershey at all but Exlax wrapped up in a Hershey wrapper should have stuck with me. But, I heard CANDY, all other brain functions are out the window.

On to the photos, of the so called CANDY.

Step 6: Add a little table salt and enjoy. One thought I had was to add some salsa to this, just a pinch.

When I was married, I made this so called CANDY for my brother in-law at the time. What better way to attempt to welcome him. He took one look at it and eyes rolled and his nose became a snob-it was very obvious.

Later on today/evening, once I get my photos to the desktop and cropped, I will show another recipe for Beef Enchilada with Red enchilada sauce. Sauce homemade not canned.

Why did I use that Feature photo on top? It has nothing to do with food!

1: I am fond of the show the “IT Crowd” a shame it only had a four year run.

2. If you look at my menu above where you see the About Me, I have put a PC Help Desk tab/page there. Right now it says “Under Construction” So, I will be working on that page for a while before I publish it.
