I have recovered my sanity. Tried to go buy a steam cleaner at Kohl's, but they were out of the one I wanted.
Am making lasagna for supper and thought I'd make some peanut butter fudge to send to the college kid. It's been a long time since I made fudge. Found my digital thermometer and everything. After this was taking forever, I realized that it's miscalibrated. Ugh.
I don't think I have fudge. It remains to be seem if it is edible at all.
I will most likely try again. Because I refuse to admit defeat.
Meanwhile, here's to a drink while assembling the lasagna.
