The first batch I did seized up instantly in the pan and in attempting to save it, I managed to get it soft enough to pour but it never then solidified. Okay, it tastes good, I'm going to use it to make filled cookies. So I try again. This time it won't set =at all=; I even tried to re-cook it (per the good ol' Better Homes cookbook), but I now have a pan of slightly burned sweet peanut butter soup. Must. Succeed. Cannot. Accept. Cooking. Failure.
I found myself actually perplexed by a piece of new televisional technology, as I stared in confusion at the "quick start" guide for the DVD-R. I'm not sure if I can connect it through the existing VCR/DVD combo machine, and I'm hesitant to get rid of the old machine completely because I still do have a number of VCRs. (However, if I can figure this out, I could theoretically transfer all those VCRs TO DVD...) Usually I have stuff like this plugged in and running within seconds, but at the moment all my electronics are precariously perched on ill-fitting shelves I added to our old entertainment center, and the old tiny television has NO connections for anything except an incoming co-ax cable.
I didn't finish steaming the floor (dining room and kitchen); I didn't get the last box of books carried out to the shed, but I did get the ribbons and wrapping accessories put into a good new box and started a new Goodwill box. So on the whole, much accomplished, some not, and sadly, I DO have to work tomorrow.
Speaking of fudge, I have often mused... how does one add chocolate chunks and marshmallows and such things to fudge without them melting? (Say, to make Rocky Road fudge.)
I will try again as soon as I can afford to buy moar ingredients.
