December 9



We are under a blizzard warning here, although it's not bad yet.  We'll see what the rest of the night brings!  Since we are all staying in tonight, Heather decided to make a batch of fudge.  We use an old recipe that came from Bob's mom.  It has to boil for a while and then be beat by hand for some time.  It took me many attempts to learn how to do it, but it's good!  Now I end up making it for family gatherings because no one else does it anymore.
So, here's the first batch of the season, being stirred on the stove.

That fudge looks oh so good! It hope it turns out well. I have been checking the weather cam on Grand Surf to see what your weather is like. It is a little dark tonight to see much. Stay warm, my friend.

Mari, I was just thinking about fudge today myself, but I haven't made any yet. I have the See's Fudge recipe and it is sooo good! My aunt worked for them as a teenager, so she got the recipe. :) I wish I could taste yours...I bet it is really good!

Swirling fudge while the winds are swirling around your house -- what else are you gonna do? I told you it was coming your way. Will hit here again in Arizona over the weekend so don't get too complacent just yet!
