If you love your sandwiches as much as I do, you deserve a real sandwich meal. These yummy candy treats are a perfect ending to that tasty sandwich meal. Store the little bits of deliciousness in the freezer, and pull them out as-needed. Mmmmmm!
I like to save money on food. Buying several kinds of candy for dessert plates can be expensive. My White Fudge Recipe can yield quite a few unique types of candy, just by changing the add-ins and coatings. A sandwich can stand alone, but adding a small sweet treat can enhance your sandwich meal.

Over the years I have been fortunate to obtain permanent employment in between jobs. Having a car does help as this allows you to fill any assignments they may have open. Part of getting on the "first call" list is being able to do this. Another tip - join as many temporary work agencies as you can and work for the "first" one to contact you about an assignment that fits into what you are seeking as a permanent job. Temporary work assignments allow you to check out the company and the company to check you out. Going on an interview never gives you the insight you get from actually working for a company. Anyone has any favorite temporary work agencies they have worked for? Mine has been Spherion which use to be Norrell. I had started out with Norrell and stayed with this company throughout the years. Happy job hunting and keep in mind that no matter how many no's you may receive - your yes is on its way.

If you were one of the hundreds of loyal readers who read this muffin recipe and said, "WHAAAAT?? This is messed up!" You were right. There was a glitch when I was publishing it, and sadly, I did not catch it. For several measurements, there was just a question mark. I have fixed it, and the recipe works now!
I apologize for the inconvenience, and I will strive to do better. I went back and evaluated the group of articles that I posted yesterday, and yeppers, they all had problems in the translation from my text to the published text. I fixed those rascally question marks! If you find one that I missed, please let me know!!
