Made this for Mary’s going-away party; got the recipe from my own Granny Mary.
It was a big hit at the party, where I drank way too much because I was so happy to be making new friends and getting along and being liked, etc., etc. Then the next morning I woke up still wearing all my clothes, with the cell phone the my pocket and everything–a brutal hangover–and I had to have Kevin help me fill in some details from the night before.
Ah, well, but, this is how we learn, right? Except that I have maybe done the same thing twice this week (getting too excited about new friendships/possibilities and forgetting to count how many drinks I swallow). My new thing is no longer feeling like a social pariah. Anyways, Fudge:
“See’s Fudge (from Great Grandma Jennie Nielsen
