Well I knew it,I was getting sick.I felt like I was on my death bed yesterday but today is better.
I'm still not up to eating much but at least I'm keeping what I do eat down now.I absolutely hate being sick,I'm praying my kids don't get whatever I had.
I'm going to start baking for Christmas tomorrow night,(I wanted to make sure I was germ free before I started)I have to make 4 lbs of fudge for 2 school "winter" parties and then I'm making some cookies.
Here is my very fave fudge recipe,I've been making it for almost 12 years now and it's pretty much goof-proof.I think the peanut butter and milk chocolate are the best!!!
