Some days I am not sure if Saturday is my favorite day or the one I dread. I love that my husband is home, although I wish he was here every day :) but I also hate that it is go go go all day long because we get so little time together these days. It was so nice to have a little help in the garden this morning. We talked a lot about the future and our plans seems to spin in circles in our heads. All I know for now is that whens summer vacation arrives I will be on the downsizing train! A massive yard sale will occur some time in the late part of June and again in late August before I return to work. I wish the world did not revolve around money but it does booooo!!!

Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
