Funny Christmas “Fudge” Poem

I know that it is not Christmas time but I have fudge on my mind this morning and found this cute poem.

Dashing from the malls

With groceries yet to buy,
Workshops, kids & housekeeping,
Life’s so crazy! Why?

Bells on our telephone ring,
The machine will take the call,
We have no time for family or friends,
It drives us up the wall.

How are you? How’s your life?
We really want to know.
Hope you’re ready for Christmas,
Now maybe it will snow.

A day or two ago,
We thought we’d make a treat,
For all our special friends–
A Christmas Gift to eat!

Our intentions were top notch,
But our schedules would not budge,
Hence, here’s this year’s version of

The idea here is to use the poem with the candy bar….no recipe…too hectic to make fudge…so you give a giant candy bar instead! I’m not sure where the poem originated from but I found it over at:SplitCoastStampers.

Now if you like fudge and want some that tastes great and is easy then check these out.

Happy National Peanut Butter Cookie Day!

Don’t you just love celebrating National Food Holidays? Today is National Peanut Butter Cookie Day!  And yes, we have a mix for that! Our Peanut Butter cookie mix requires only water, that’s it, nothing else and the cookies come out of the oven warm, soft and delicious!  I hope you enjoy this tasty day.

The Aztecs invented peanut butter in the 14th century, but peanut butter cookies didn’t become an American favorite until the early 1900s. In 1916, George Washington Carver began promoting the peanut and its many uses. As part of the campaign, he published three peanut butter cookie recipes in a research bulletin entitled, “How to Grow the Peanut and 105 Ways of Preparing it for Human Consumption.”

In 1932, the Schenectady Gazette published the first peanut butter cookie recipe that called for crisscrossed fork marks on the top. Today, a peanut butter cookie just wouldn’t be quite right without this iconic decoration!

To celebrate National Peanut Butter Cookie Day, head on over to Country Gourmet Home and place an order so that you will be able to make a batch of delicious homemade peanut butter cookies for your family!
