Do You Want Fries With That?

Yes. I'm obsessed with fudge.
But it's not like I have a problem or anything. I can stop any time.
I can.
Seriously.
Back off.

December 14:

Today was your gift exchange with your Visiting Teaching companion.

However, after she presented you with a miniature replica of the Nutcracker Ballet - dancers, giant tree, the works - all made from scratch in gingerbread and that impossible stained glass candy, and bearing a beautiful, hand-crafted card that said, "To my dear companion, for whom I gladly burned off all my fingertips to create this Christmas Masterpiece of Wonder and Joy", YOU handed HER a gift certificate for five free Junior Frostys from Wendy's.

Fudge works magic on guilt.

I cherish a secret (till now) and quite evil wish that such women will be strangled by their own glue gun cords. This may, just perhaps, not be in keeping with the spirit of Christmas...

Pass the fudge, please.

You are awesome!!!!! I think that gift certificates for anything is sooooo having the spirit of the season!
No thought needed.........I like my fudge with nuts please.

Maureen said...

Hey, what's wrong with Frostys?? They're frosty and they're free! Sounds like a good gift to GIVE to me. But who wants gingerbread when there's chocolate in the world?

How much fudge does it take to assuage the guilt of never doing my visiting teaching? Heck, I don't even feel guilty about it any more. How much fudge is that worth?

Come see my neighbor gifts!

Hmmm . . .now you're making me second guess what I got for my visiting teaching sisters. I just so happen to have a stack of McD's coupons in my purse, all labeled "Emergency Diet Coke Fund." I know it's at the top of MY wish list.

Maybe I'll stick some fudge in the envelope with the coupons and call it good.

I give orange sticks, but I'd go for the frosty's if someone gave me a certificate.

Sher said...

See, the problem with you mentioning fudge on all of your posts, is that I just can't seem to get past it. The fudge that is.
I'm going to have to go make ANOTHER batch now.
Thanks a lot!

Sher said...

Oh yeah, maybe I'll take some to my ladies I'm supposed to visit teach, with Mother board.

L.T. Elliot said...

I'm so with Kim. (ha ha ha!) And I'd take that gift certificate for frostys any day!

Shelley said...

I just stopped by to have a read. I just read all of your "fudge" posts. I think you are now my favorite person in the world and I need to live closer so that you can share!!
A little guilt did kick in for the Dec 5th post. I have my stack of generic photo cards that I HAVE NOT MAILED YET! and was considering sending without a personal message. I will now spend the afternoon writing....and eating fudge...

mommymel said...

Brooke, will you VT me? I need the emergency diet coke fund coupons. Seriously. Thanks!

MommyJ said...

Today, I ate some of your fudge. Made by inkmom... and deliciously wonderful.

You give a present to your visiting teaching companion? Can you please not send that memo to MY visiting teaching companion? We've never exchanged gifts before.

Dustin and Melanie said...

I tried your fudge recipe today, I had intended to give it away but I'm afraid it won't survive long outside of the kitchen, let alone leave the house. THANKS. And you should really read my post about it:)

Cherie said...

L.O.V.E IT! Seriously you are so funny!

Fudge is awesome!!!!

M-Cat said...

You will be so very proud of me. I broke down today. I ate a small piece of butterscotch fudge (can't do the chocolate). Which poses an interesting question. If it's butterscotch, is it technically fudge. Doesn't fudge have to be chocolate? Please explain in your next fudge posting.

And yeah, I hate it when my gift is pathetic compared to one someone else gives me.

AS Amber said...

OK, I checked out "Dustin and Melanie" post on making your fudge and it was way funny.

Crap. Now I gotta get something for my VT comp. My life was a lot less busy when I wasn't active in the church!!!

(WV: reviver. "Amber ate so much fudge they had to use chocolate chip cookies to reviver."

Amber Lynae said...

Frostys gift cards? I think my hubby would love you for life. However, if VT companion wasn't thrilled, if you shared your fudge all might be forgiven.

Lisa Loo said...

You are supposed to give your VT companion a gift??!!
Dang, people--a little heads up would have been nice...
