The aroma of Chocolate is in the house today as Mom is making her annual Christmas Candy. She made Peanut Butter Fudge, Walnut Fudge, her should be world famous Buckeyes Candy, and the Christmas Chex Mix. I guess now would be the time to turn the scales back 5 lbs. or more! Below I’ve left the recipes for the Walnut Fudge and Buckeyes. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

 

 

The Old Family Buckeye Recipe
It’s that time of year when the requests start coming in for my Mom’s Buckeyes. Back when I was working I was everyone’s favorite person when I would bring in a batch of my Mom’s Buckeyes. It’s been 14 years since I lost my leg to melanoma cancer and unable to work but to this day I still get request’s from fellow past workers for my Mom’s Buckeyes. It seems that everyone that has had them all say the same thing “The best Buckeyes I’ve ever had!” I think it’s the Rice Krispies that sets them apart from other Buckeye Candies. When you make a batch of these and try them I’m sure you’ll agree, let me know! These are not diabetes friendly but they are delicious. We tried making them by using reduced fat Peanut Butter and Sugar Free Chocolate but they just didn’t come out the same.
Buckeyes
Ingredients:

Recipe will make about 60 balls

1 – Stick Butter, Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter
1 – Box (1 LB) Confectioner Sugar
2 – Cups Jiff Smooth Peanut Butter
3 – Cups Rice Krispies
1 – 12 oz. Package Chocolate Chips
1 – Small Bar Hershey’s Milk Chocolate
1/2 Bar Paraffin Wax
Directions:

* In a large bowl mix Butter, Sugar, Peanut Butter, and Rice Krispies (With Hands)
* Chill the mixture for at least 2 hours.
* Then take the mixture and roll into individual balls. The size can vary no set size.
* Melt all the Chocolate and Paraffin Wax in a double broiler or in a sauce pan on low heat stirring until smooth.
* With one or two forks dip each of the balls into the Chocolate/Wax. Drain excess off the balls and place on a sheet pan covered with wax paper and refrigerate for several hours until Chocolate has hardened into a shell covering the balls.
* Now enjoy them!

 

Walnut Fudge

Ingredients:

3 Cups Sugar or Splenda Equivalent

Chocolate Walnut Fudge

3/4 Cup Margarine
2/3 Cup Evaporated Milk
7 oz. Jar of Marshmallow Cream
1 12 oz. bag Toll House Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Chopped Walnuts (More if wanted, to taste)
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Instructions:

Combine Sugar, Margarine, and Evap. Milk in a large pot and heat to a boil for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and add Chocolate Chips, Marshmallow Cream, Nuts, and Vanilla stirring till well mixed. Pour mixture into a greased 13×9 pan. Refrigerate until firm. Cut into desired size pieces.

* You may be tempted to leave the heat on while stirring the chips. While this would normally be ok, you really shouldn’t do that in this recipe. If the mixture stays at a boiling temperature, you may be in for a nasty surprise when you add the vanilla. Bottom line: it’s safer for you and better for the fudge if the mixture cools down just a tad before the vanilla goes in. As long as you keep stirring, the chips will melt just fine.

Urban gardening: Hamilton group to provide fresh food in the city

I came across this article in our local paper, Journal-News. It’s the start of a very good program in in Hamilton, Ohio.

 

HAMILTON
Alfred Hall and his urban-gardening organization want to fill a need in Hamilton that is experienced in many U.S. cities: a hunger for fresh foods.

Hall, a co-founder of HUGS (Hamilton Urban Garden Systems), is using a small greenhouse that’s attached to the Butler County Metropolitan Housing Authority’s Dayton Lane Gardens apartments in the 100 block of North 6th St.

He created a garden there about four years ago so residents in the subsidized-housing complex could grow their own food.

On Thursday, Nov. 9, Hall and a representative of Rich Plant Medium will offer a talk from 6 to 8 p.m. at Miami University Hamilton’s downtown location (221 High St.) about growing food using technology.

Three years ago, he persuaded the housing authority to let him use a greenhouse that’s attached to the building.

In the next couple of weeks, Hall plans to launch an experiment in the greenhouse, using four experimental “indoor controlled-environment agriculture growing methods,” to see which is the most cost-effective in growing lettuce. To be more environmentally friendly and save money, he waters the plants using a gravity-powered watering system from a large garbage can that he refills from time to time.

Once he determines which method is best, using 3-by-10-foot raised beds — one for each of the experimental methods — he plans to expand his operations……

Jimmy John’s – Ultimate Porker and Billy Club

Today’s Menu: Jimmy John’s – Ultimate Porker and Billy Club

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin (lightly buttered), Scrambled 1 Egg, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I headed up to the hospital to see Dad. He’s doing okay. They have him on heavy duty water pills to try to drain the water on his lungs. He’s had so many problems for the past few years. Another hot and humid day out! Back home did some house cleaning and a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I ordered a delivery from Jimmy John’s, Ultimate Porker Sub Sandwich.

 

 

The weather is still the same here; hazy, hot, and humid! And when it’s like this I really don’t feel like cooking a big meal so tonight I tried a Sub Sandwich from Jimmy John’s. I tried the Jimmy John’s Ultimate Porker and Mom had the Billy Club. First time trying Jimmy John’s, I had it delivered.

 

 

 

 

The Ultimate Porker is a Sub Sandwich that has Wood-Smoked Ham, Ham, and Bacon with Lettuce, and Mayo . It comes with Tomato also but I didn’t get that. Nice size Sub with plenty of Meat. The Smoked Ham and Bacon were great! Everything came together and made one delicious and filling Sub Sandwich! Plus I didn’t even have to get out in the heat to get it, I had delivered. The Sub was 298 calories and 57 carbs. A bit more carbs than I like but well worth it. We’ll be ordering again. Mom’ really enjoyed hers also she had the Billy Club. The Billy Club is a Sub Sandwich with Choice Roast Beef, Smoked Ham, Provolone Cheese, Dijon Mustard, Lettuce, Tomato, and Mayo. First Sub Sandwich in a while and it hit the spot! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.
