Aunt Katherine's Fabulous Fudge


Fudge is so good. I love fudge (not to be confused by Judy Blume's books). Today me and my mother made Aunt Katherine's Fabulous Fudge.

  • mixing bowl (one from a mixer works fine)
  • long spoon
  • Duncan Hines chocolate frosting (16 oz.)
  • Hershey's milk chocolate chips (2cups)
  • microwave
  • oven mitt (optional)
  • wax paper
  • cooling rack
  1. Pour chocolate chips and frosting into bowl. Stir until mixed. 
  2. Put concoction in microwave for 2 minutes or until melted and soft.
  3. Using oven mitt, take fudge out and set on table. Put wax paper on cooling rack.
  4. Stir concoction for about 30 seconds. Using spoon, pour substance onto cooling rack.
  5. Put into fridge to harden. It took about 40 minutes for ours to harden, but it may depend on your fridge.

Dentist Appointment

Today I went back to the dentist to get my bite plate inserted. I chose the colors pink, white, blue and purple for my bite plate. 

Here is a picture of the mold that the dentist technician made of the inside of my mouth and teeth for the bite plate. They let me keep it as a souvenir. 

First, the technician put blue "tooth cement" all over the top of my bite plate. Then she rinsed my mouth with water, and then used another nozzle to dry my back teeth. Finally, it took several minutes for her to fit the bite plate inside of my mouth. It was painful and I wasn't having fun.

Afterwards she held an ultraviolet light in my mouth for a few seconds. 

The bite plate fits okay, but I have a hard time chewing, and I talk like I have a lisp. My mother said, that I sound like I have a speech impediment.  But the dentist said the speech problem will eventually go away.  I really hope so.

After my dentist appointment, me and my mother drove over to the library, were we just happened to meet a famous photographer. He's a famous artist and photographer.  I was able to take a picture with him but I didn't get his autograph.

Today is the birthday of the great civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  If you don't know about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. or people like Medgar Evers or Rosa Parks, then you would have had to be living under a rock.

We were out of school today and all the libraries and government building were closed to honor Dr. Martin Luther King.  As we drove to the orthodonist.   So that I could be fitted for my spacers, we listen to K-Love and they were talking about some of the great things that Dr. King did in his life time.  That got me to thinking about him and I asked my mother questions about him and that time during the African American Civil Rights Movement.  My mother wasn't even born then, I don't think but she's read a lot about those days.

There was something called Jim Crow in the Southern States of America.  An many Whites did not want Blacks to have the same freedoms and comforts like the ability to vote, a good education, nice and safe places to live, good hospitals and other basic things that people need to live well and to be happy.  I don't know why these Whites were so against the Blacks having these things other than hate and my mother said something about resources and the need for some of the Whites to need to feel superior. Although God loves us all the same and made all of us in his image.

The Blacks and even some other Whites got sick and tired of the way things were and they began to protest by having sit-ins, and boycotts.  Things got really nasty and became worse for the Blacks after this and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and others began to do something about it. 

My mother said one of the things that made Dr. King exceptional was that he was a Godly man and lead his protest without violence. Because of Dr King, people like my grandfather who came here from Calcutta to go to a University, well people like him were able to enjoy the privileges that Dr. King and other Civil Rights Movement Workers died for. 

Day Of The Dentist

Today I went to the orthodonist. I needed to get fit for a spacer.
Me and my mother drove there and I waited for 10 minutes. Then, the lady called my name and leaving my mom, I walked down the hall. It's a really nice place, very brightly lit with colorful pictures all over the walls and everyone is so nice.

I took off my glasses and put on a huge pair of sunglasses to prevent the light from hurting my eyes when they started the work on my teeth. The technician put a very bulky vest on me. She lead me out of the little station cubicle we were in and I walked over to a very complex looking X- ray machine. I walked over to it and it lowered slowly. A headpiece snapped onto my head, and I had to bite onto this little yellow lever. The lady turned the machine on and slowly the machine spun around my head, taking pictures. Next, the lady put me in a strange contraption to take another X-ray. There was a piece that went in my ears and a piece that rested firmly on my nose.

After that, the lady lead me to the main surgery part of the office, which was filled with more children's drawings and even more bright colors.  Then I followed her to an orange wall were she took several mug like shots of me with a camera that took way too long.

My mother filmed some of the work for me so I could show you.  My gums are sore because right now I have the rubber band like things on them they are called separators to make room for the spacers.
