Last week was busy. I finished up on the cleanup part of that huge software conversion, it is not done completely, but the software is now usable for retrieval of filed information and posting of current business activity. This allowed me to put away most of the tenant files piled on my desk, and you know, it looked like I actually got something done. Last night we had an owl in our backyard serenading for the longest time. I think we are to "city" for an owl, but our backyard trees are easily 150 feet tall. Kind of like, old growth in the city! Oh and I had a birthday to celebrate.
Gosh my family treats me well! Funny cards, and cards full of caring thoughts and good wishes.
And today is also Cookbook Sunday. I love Cookbook Sundays! But I tend to have issues with Cookbook Sunday. It is my own fault really, I wait and I wait and I am caught empty handed for a chosen recipe to use. But not today I tell you. Today we are going to make Chocolate Sauce. Not just any sauce, chocolate sauce that keeps (almost) indefinitely.
Chocolate sauce made from pantry ingredients, chocolate sauce from this book.........................
from: Five Star Favorites, friends of Maime and Ike
|Chocolate Dessert Sauce|
5 oz unsweetened baking chocolate (like Hershey's)
1 1/2 c sugar
1/8 t salt
pinch of cream of tartar
1 can (about 14 oz) evaporated milk
1 t vanilla
Melt chocolate in a saucepan.
Remove from heat and blend in sugar, salt and cream of tartar.
Slowly stir in evaporated milk.
Heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a rolling boil. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
|Silky smooth, Chocolate Dessert Sauce.|
Serve hot or cold, depending upon the dessert. This sauce keeps almost indefinitely if covered and refrigerated. It thins when reheated.
Makes approximately 2 cups.
