To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

MISSISSIPPI MUD SAUCE
Summer is here! You are gonna thank me for this! How can your thoughts of summer not include a delicious ice cream sundae? This is my secret fudge sauce that I discovered when we lived in Dothan, Alabama! I have made it every summer and believe me....you will never, ever buy jarred hot fudge sauce again....sorry Smuckers! Show your Southern Hospitality by serving up this sweet sensation that makes everyone scream for ice cream!!!
In a small saucepan, stir together ¾ cup sugar and 1/3 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened). Stir in one 5 ounce can of evaporated milk which equals 2/3 cup. Cook and stir over medium heat until it comes to a soft boil. Remove from heat. Now…wait for it…here it comes……oh yeah……
Stir in ¼ cup of chunky peanut butter. Serve warm over vanilla ice cream!
Now, that's a crowd pleaser!
