Because I love chocolate, that’s why I’m posting this recipe. Really easy. Really simple. Really quick.
HOT FUDGE SAUCE
3 0r 4 oz. unsweetened chocolate squares
½ cup butter
3 cups sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 large can evaporated milk
Melt the butter and chocolate over boiling water in a double boiler. Stir in sugar gradually. Add salt. Gradually stir in the evaporated milk stiffing constantly. Great over ice cream.
Quick update on the vertigo experience. Most unsteady day so far. Remember the commercial for Weebles? Yes, I feel like a Weeble. I skipped a dosage of my meds today. I won’t be doing that again.

This family recipe contribution comes by the way of my brother Mark. Mark obtained this recipe from his friend Shaheen from Pakistan. I love curry and this is a wonderful sauce to serve with just about any meat coarse. I especially love it with smoked pork tenderloin or chicken. It is yummy!
CURRY SAUCE FOR MEAT
2 large onions, chopped
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
½ cup oil
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 Tablespoon red pepper (or less)
1 clove minced garlic
½ teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 cup water
1 Tablespoon ground cumin
1 heaping teaspoon curry powder
1 Teaspoon garlic powder
Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and heat on high until it begins to boil. Lower heat and simmer until thick. Add whatever meat is desired and cook until done. Serve hot in warm Pita bread pockets (I just put mine in a bowl, but this note was part of the original recipe).

I love cheese. Well – except that stinky cheese. But, I do love most cheese and anything made with cheese. This is one of my favorite snack recipes. Cheese Straws! Have you ever experienced a cheese straw? They are yummy. And, easy to make. I like mine spiced up with Tabasco, but plain cheese flavor is super delicious too. Give ‘um a try – I think you’ll like them.
2 cups grated cheese (sharp or regular)
½ cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cold water
1-1/2 cups flour
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Cream butter and cheese together. Sift flour and baking powder, add salt and pepper. Form in dough as pie crust. Roll out as thin as pastry. Cut in strips with a pastry wheel. Bake at 400 degrees F for 5 to 8 minutes. Take up immediately and let cool.
