Sunday Dinner and Fudge

Tonight for dinner the menu is:
Roast Beef
Baked Potatoes (youngest is on a potato kick-which dovetails nicely with the fact that I got a 15 lb bag of Idaho potatoes on sale a few weeks ago)
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Caprese Salad (I chunked it all up and used some tangerine olive oil on it)

Youngest turned down making fudge. It really is too bad. I was in the mood to make the easy fudge so commonly made later in the month. Not that we needed the candy. We’ve a ton of unhanded out Halloween candy. Santa may be off-loading it in stockings.

Easy Fudge

  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk

  • 1 7-oz. (198 g) jar Kraft Marshmallow fluff
