Here's the easiest way to express gratitude for those with whom you share a fence: in a word, fudge. And I've got the skinny on the easiest, silkiest, dreamiest fudge that you could ever whip up in five minutes. It's so easy, in fact, that my five year old made a batch for his Sunday school teachers. Other than pushing the buttons on the microwave, he was a lone, proud cowboy of candy making. Tomorrow we'll be back to Christmas Around the World. I think. In the meantime, I've been churning out cookies, candies, cakes, not to mention dinners galore, and I haven't really even shared them at all, thanks to this month's international Christmas crazy bonanza. But this one, dear readers, this one I just couldn't keep to myself. If you haven't made anything for your neighbors, your hairdresser, your spiritual advisor, your mailman, youre genealogist, your recently unemployed financial advisor....this is it. I'm off to rush around madly in circles with the rest of America. Just five more days till Christmas!
