Last Sunday I felt the uncontrollable urge to make some fudge... so I did. This was amidst the Lumberjack and I trying to prise up old lino tiles from our hall way...
That wasn't a fun job - those tiles have been down a hell of a long time, and a lot of them didn't want to come up! Sometimes you've just got to stop everything and make fudge.
The Lumberjack just looked at that photo and said that they look like lumps of lard!!! Nasty boy! I used this simple recipe. To be honest, I don't really know what I'm doing when it comes to fudge - looking back at the picture on the recipe it seems they should be darker in colour. Maybe I didn't heat it for long enough. I don't have a thermometer, and didn't quite know what I was doing with the 'soft-ball test'.
They were a bit too sweet for the Lumberjack, but that concept doesn't exist in my world! They are very sweet, and I think they'd be the sort of thing that most people would say that they couldn't eat too much off. However, I couldn't stop eating it once I'd had a bite, it was shameful.
I'll hopefully be back soon to show you some pictures of the home decoration work that's been going on!
