Today Husband and Fio will make chocolate fudge.
It almost didn't happen this year. Fio looked around just before Christmas, but couldn't find any of the familiar Famous Fudge boxes--all ingredients included--in either of the HEBs in town. Then, yesterday, she visited the giant HEB in Leander.
And bought the very last box on the shelves.
But, you ask, isn't it too late for Christmas fudge? Not in Fio's world. Remember, she didn't complete her decorating till Christmas Eve, and the tree, the swags and drapes, the fake snowflakes, the creches and stockings--they're all staying up till February.
But the fudge isn't going to last that long.
