Hmmmm........not much to say this Saturday. We were going to have our first big sell down yardsale but the weather prevented us from doing that booooo!!! We did end up finding a great deal on a solar panel set up that should be big enough to run our rv. I am really excited about that, everything we have to sell is just material and while it would be nice to get some cash for it, if it ever comes time to go what we don't need could easily find a new home. Each step closer gets me more excited and even more overwhelmed! I did sell 2 large storage containers full of stuff online though so tomorrow my goal is to refill those containers! I hope everyone has an amazing Father's Day with the ones they love.
Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. 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
