Be content with what you have, for God has said "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." So say with confidence, "the Lord is my helper I will not be afraid." Hebrews 13:5-6

An inexpensive gift idea and a fun recipe!

Two years ago at one of my first MOPS meetings down in Olympia, my mentor mom gave all of us girls at our table a beautifully presented glass jar filled with homemade hot fudge sauce! Now dont be thinking this is something like hershey's chocolate syrup, oh no this is the REAL YUMMY deal! This is the best hot fudge you have ever tasted. It makes the perfect inexpensive gifts for teachers and friends and also a really fun treat for an at home night with your hubby! You can dip strawberries in it or do what I love, make your own peanut buster parfait that takes EXACTLY if not better then DQ. I love to save my old glass jars and fill them up with this, place a piece of cute fabric on top and tie it with a ribbon. Dont forget to give them the recipe because they WILL ask for it! SO here it is:

1 cube of butter

6 squares of unsweetened chocolate

2 cups sugar

1 large can of evaporated milk

1 tsp vanilla

dash of salt

To make: melt butter and chocolate; add sugar & salt, melt sugar. Slowly add milk. Bring to a boil, cook 3-4 min until thick, add vanilla. ENJOY!!
