Grateful for the Ordinary

Posted on

The early morning song of a cardinal joyfully greeting a new day.

The soft patter of much needed rain. The drought has ended.

A tearful reminder that God is near and He cares for the grieving and the lonely.

The struggle to do something new.

The happiness that accompanies success.

The smile of a loved one.

Chocolate pudding with whipped cream.

Ordinary moments accumulate into days filled with more gifts than can be counted.

And sometimes we think the day was unremarkable.

There’s no such thing when blessings are acknowledged and gratitude expressed for the gifts – great and small – we have received.

Rocky Road Fudge

The Christmas baking has begun at our house. Rocky Road Fudge. YUM! I can’t resist the combination of chocolate and peanuts. This recipe is great for giving or the bake sale table at the church bazaar.

Rocky Road Fudge

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup roasted peanuts

Melt the first three ingredients over low heat then fold into marshmallows and peanuts. Press into an 8″ x 8″ square baking dish that has been lined with foil. Let cool, then place in the fridge to firm up. Peel off foil before slicing into chunks.

My tips:
1. Line the pan with foil before starting the melting process.
2. For a double batch, line a 9″ x 13″ pan.
