It is time to indulge with guilt or shame.

Today is National Fudge Day!

This is one cloyingly sweet treat on which She Who Must Be Obeyed and I disagree.

She cannot abide the deliciousness of this (usually) wintry treat and I love it.

Which makes a certain Christmas gift that arrives every year mine, all mine!

When I was a wee lad in Frozen North Dakota there was always plenty of fudge produced from the kitchen of my mother, as well as mothers all around town.

So I grew up eating Chocolate Fudge.

And the snow white and even sweeter Divinity.

And a sort of butterscotch flavored one called Penuche.

I have recently learned that SWMBO dislikes butterscotch too.

This revelation came as she was tucking into a bowl of Heath Bar Ice Cream, which is described as "chunks of real HEATH bar nestled in toffee-flavored Breyers with a sweet caramel swirl for a dessert that can't be beat."

Now I ask you, Gentle Readers, how can she can devour that stuff with relish but she can't stand Fudge?

But never mind, it just makes my holidays with St. Nick all the better.
