JEANNE, my sister friend that lives over at BACKYARD NEIGHBOR, sent this cute MAXINE cartoon to me and I just had to share it....


Do you suppose there is ANYone in the whole, entire world that doesn't like CHOCOLATE?





CHOCOLATE....it is GOOD....and GOOD for ya...

my story and i'm stickin' with it !!


"THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE.....CHOCOLATE."
I believe it.....don't you?


While searching the net for PINK connected with CHOCOLATE...
I got hungry.......REALLY......hungry for CHOCOLATE..
SO....what's a girl to do .....????
***

MAKE PECAN FUDGE....of COURSE !!!

I hope this plate is showing up PINK...it IS !
Beautiful daughter brought this to me from CRACKER BARREL....

I almost had a train wreck with this fudge...it got so hard in the pan before I could get it over to a plate...
***
It was good enough that I wanted YOU to have a piece...
Now, I'm serving it with ICY cold milk here but I can fix sweet tea, hot tea, coke
or DUNKIN' DONUT coffee for you, if you'd rather ......:>)

As I sit here sipping my hot vanilla tea I have to tell you that some of that chocolate would top it off perfectly! I love your combination of pink and fudge.

The Maxine comic is so cute too!

Connie said...

When my son was in USMC boot camp I had a pink t-shirt made for him that said: I miss my mom. He wore it until it fell apart, sugar. The men in my life are not afraid to wear pink at all! :-)

Justine said...

What the fudge! I want some! I want some now! Oh wait, I can't have any. Boooooooooo hooooooooooooo!
I haven't been to Cracker Barrel in so long. Jimmy hates the food there. I told him I don't care about the food. I love the shop! There's always such neat things in there.

Love your coffee mug!

Justine :o )

Sandi McBride said...

I love the bunnies!!! My son and dil brought me a bunny when I was in the hospital that looked like chocolate, smelled like chocolate but was squeezable soft...had to take him away from the nurses several times to keep them from smelling all the warm fudgy dark chocolate aroma off him!!!
hugs

Mary said...

What a cute post! How can anyone beat pink and chocolate, unless it was chocolate dipped in pink peppermint. I loved your photos. Have a great day.

OMGosh! That looks sooo yummy! Hope you have a lovely Pink Saturday!

RobinfromCA said...

Oh, pass the fudge please! Yummy! I have a pink/chocolate/breast cancer awareness post up this week as well. Come visit: http://weareflyingnow.blogspot.com

There is one thing we can do to help those who can't afford mammograms. On the sidebar of my blog there is a button to click that helps provide free mammograms. A worthy cause.

Happy Pink Saturday!
Robin

Sewconsult said...

Yep, I know someone who actually gets nasty when someone gives her something chocolate. She can get nasty about other things anyway. As I read your post, that one person (a family member) kept popping to mind. When I got to the bottom & was reminded of your initials, I chuckled. Their her initials, too!
LOVE Chocolate!
Maybe I should remain anonymous.

CC said...

Oh my gosh!!! Yes,I'll have a piece of fudge please with icy,icy cold milk. I love the plate your daughter gave you..it sure had me smiling. Happy Pinks..have a lovely weekend.

SmilingSally said...

Oh BJ, you made me remember my mama's fudge! LOL She never let it cook long enough, and it was always so soupy that we ate it with spoons! LOL Happy Pink Saturday!

twiceasnicelettering said...

Sandy said...

BJ,
Your fudge looks tooo good, the only decision would be , milk or hot coffee.
Sandy

Someone's Mom said...

My husband doesn't really like chocolate, but I love it enough for both of us. My sister and I get our mammos together. We are due in early December, but are scheduling for early January. December is just too complicated for us these days. I haven't missed one in over 20 years.

♥Mimi♥ said...

I adore Maxine and your post this week contains a keeper for sure! Chocolate - what is there to say about Manna from Heaven☺

Great post for Pink Saturday - now...where did I put that Hershey bar?

jeanne said...

Hello BJ, I'm smiling, thanks for the shout out. I love that Maxine too.

I made an apple and berry cobbler today. Mmmmm it was so good. Your chocolate post is so darn cute. I'll take a piece of your fudge but no cold milk. Hot tea sounds good.

My cousin Marilyn and her dh is here for a visit. I stayed with her in MI. We are very close. They love to stay in the cabin. She is close to my age and we have so much fun together.

I love your support of Cancer Month. You once wrote on your post that you hate cancer. It stuck with me. We should all hate cancer and support what they do.

Love and hugs xoxo, Jeanne

I love chocolate, BJ, but I hate mammograms, ugh! But I had one a few weeks ago......Christine

Oooooh, Jean! You know I be dying for a piece of the delicious fudge! Ooooooyummmmmmy! You do know how to make a girl's tummy yell for CHOCOLATE! That cold glass of milk with it sounds simply divine. Thank you very much!

Loved your blog today!

Love you too!
Martha

Oh so true and now I have a craving for chocolate, I wonder why. I love those plates of yours, very sweet, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

stefanie said...

hope you had a wonderful pink saturday!!

Brenda said...

Okay, so explain this to me, BJ. How come you're not overweight like the rest of us chocoholics? You have some secret there. Because you cook up the most scrumptious goodies, and I know you have to eat some of it or you'd go stark raving mad just smelling the aroma. Just HOW do you do it?
Brenda

Kathleen said...

PECAN fudge of course! I will never be able to look at a bag of pecans again without thinking of you!
Yes, milk will be fine!

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, dear BJ. I know I'm late getting around to visit, but better late than never. Right?! ;-)

I agree that chocolate and pink go hand in hand. And, speaking of hand, please put a piece of fudge in my had. Yum!
