Easy Microwave Chocolate Custard

This is the first time I have lived in a “swing” state. When I lived in Washington, it was a given that the state would go Democrat. Utah and Arizona always went Republican. It’s a little exciting to be in Florida this year. The news is filled with visits from candidates. They are saying that we are the third most important state in the presidential race.

I would say that that is really exciting, but most people here already know how they are going to vote. What it actually means is that we are being inundated like crazy with ads that are mostly just annoying. I learned a few years ago to register Independent when I got my driver’s license. It saves my recycle bin from being filled with fliers from a particular party because no one bothers the Independents. I find that I like saying I am independent. It means that I can make up my own mind. I do usually vote for just one party, but if I find a candidate on the “other side” that seems like a better fit, I don’t have any problem voting that way, too.

  1. >Looks fabulous… sorry I haven't been around for awhile, I moved to the US Virgin Islands (I still giggle when I say that) for six months, and it is taking awhile to get settled. But i do think I am caught up, and will be back reading each of your new posts as usual…

    Come take a look at my new blogs of Island life!

    It is too funny to read the old cookbooks. I love that you dug this gem out and posted this

  2. >"Those were the days of the country homemaker with a radio tower in her backyard, broadcasting to the ladies in the local counties all about her special cake or bread recipe (sounds a lot like today's blogging doesn't it?)" … Wow, that is a really interesting fact, and it must be a great cookbook. It certainly does sound like today's blogging!

    Kristen, I really wish you would link this recipe to Vintage Recipe Thursday. This is exactly the type of history I am trying to preserve, and to promote these treasures.
