Y’all, my sincerest apologies! Please forgive me for this late post. Last week I totally spaced and got the date wrong when I scheduled my Thursday (that turned into Friday) post and this week I just couldn’t get it together. I’m one hot mess!
My sister, Molly, and her husband are here from San Francisco for Christmas, so we’ve had a busy weekend. I kept planning to get my act together, but there were just too many
drinks fun things to do! The festivities started on Friday evening with dinner and I was a little tipsy – not to mention exhausted from a brutal week at work. So no post prepared.
Saturday Chris and I met Lisa and friends for
day drinking pedicures then landed at the Dog Bar with Molly and crew. There was tequila and then Uber. I plead the Fifth on my condition Sunday morning. Suffice it to say that it wasn’t pretty. Then my Cardiac Cats tried to kill me with that dang game! I don’t know what in tarnation was happening in the second half, but we’re still 14-0 by the skin of our teeth! #keeppounding
The good news is that I found my gram’s holiday fudge recipe! It was in the recipe box right where my mom said it would be. I was able to pull myself together enough to make this on Sunday to take to my mom’s house for dinner. Talk about a blast from the past and a trip down memory lane!
This fudge is so easy you can make it after a night of shenanigans and tequila. You’ll also get in a workout to sweat out all those toxins while stirring in the marshmallow fluff and peanut butter, so you don’t smell boozy when you go to mom’s for Sunday dinner.
That’s a win in my book! Cheers and happy holidays, y’all!
