Wow what a Saturday it has been. We got up early to do the first of many yardsales and lets just say it was the worst one I have ever had! So as we packed up we went through and donated and entire truck bed full to goodwill. Sadly our tax credit is more then we made :(. On a good note though it did nicely clean up the pile and I am refreshed to go through more. I am putting items online for sale and hopefully that has better results. This week is focused on getting ready for vacation. I will be scheduling some posts to go live while I am out of town and with any luck I will be able to do some fun posts while on the road :) So back to working on that I go! I hope everyone has a great weekend!

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
