Yesterday, Ducky visited the doggy spa, mainly because he was so smelly. I noticed his dog bed was also stinky. The tag on it said to only spot clean but spot cleaning was not going to freshen it up so I machine wash and dried it. It looks great now, doesn’t it? And it smells nice.
In my opinion, those tags that say not to machine wash are not usually reliable. I’ve machine washed all kinds of stuffed toys, ball caps, athletic shoes and pillows and now I’ll keep washing this dog bed when it needs it.
Grand kids were here today. I made baked tacos for lunch. For the toppings, I diced them finely and mixed together and then just added a small handful to each taco.
I chopped pecans and planned bake banana bread and make fudge.
So far, only the fudge has happened and it turned out delicious,
I used This Fudge Recipe
It called for 3 cups of chocolate chips. I put the milk chocolate chips in a measuring cup and added enough semisweet chips to make 3 cups.
I put the chips in a microwave safe bowl with 1/4 cup diced butter and I can of sweetened condensed milk.
Then I microwaved it for 3 minutes on 50% power for 3 minutes, it was melted then and I just stirred it until it was combined and added 1 t vanilla and about a cup of chopped pecans.
The I spread it in a buttered dish and let it cool and then cut.
It is really nice fudge- creamy and just firm enough to cut.
If you need a quick treat for Christmas, I recommend this fudge
That puzzle that was started a few days ago is now finished and back in the box.
It’s almost Christmas- hope you all are ready with your preparations and can enjoy the special day
About the yard signs - I believe both sign companies are franchises. Card My Yard has been in our town for maybe 3 years and now Gypsy Signs are here. In general, they put the signs out the night before the special day and then pick them back up after dark the next day but that can vary. I’ve seen them for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, births of new babies, promotions, back to school- etc.
I think if someone wanted to start a business, a sign franchise might be something to look into.
The Star was quite visible for us last night as we had very clear skies. I’m sorry so many of y’all had clouds.
