Futile

From our house to yours! A delicious loaf of chocolate chip pumpkin bread with all the glaze licked off and a few bites off of all the tops. By a little mouse. Named Ellison. Kinda anticlimactic after a night of baking until 1:00 am to wake up and find the nibbled aftermath. So I got over it, reglazed them and took them to the neighbors anyways. Just kidding. You hope. Martha Stewart is horrified.



Next morning, it was the peanut butter fudge. Huge scoops carved out from fingers suspiciously E's size as damning evidence. This is the price I pay for trying to get a couple of extra Zzzz's in the a.m. And not putting the fudge out of reach. (I KNEW I should have hid it in the laundry room!) So I'm contemplating her fate: guillotine, the rack, Chinese water torture, etc. Marc settled on an appropriate mild verbal chastisement. Why am I obsessed with chronicling(sp?) my childrens' utter misery as of late? I'm not sure. (Reference previous post of Charlotte's breakdown). I'll have to get back to you on that one after I thoroughly overanalyze it. I suppose it beats corporal punishment.

No she did not! I would have killed her over the bread, and then the fudge...oh man!!! I guess it is a good thing for blogging, it gives us somewhere to vent and others to laugh!!!

Can I get that peanut butter fudge recipe?

Karen, I would have gladly accepted the re-glazed bread!!! That looks so good. Hey, now that is a girl I can relate to! I LOVE that top part of the loaf.

Brookeo,
About that peanut butter fudge recipe--here's the thing--Laura Graff brought me that fudge last year in Iowa and I LOVED IT. So I asked her for the recipe, which she told me was on the back of the marshmallow creme jar. So I went and bought some marshmallow creme and made it last week. Problem is, I threw away the jar and for the life of me can't remember quantities, since I like tripled it or something. It's butter, vanilla, marshmallow creme and peanut butter, plus maybe other few things? I'd try going to the Kraft website or googling it...I'll email it to you if I track it down, K? So sorry darlin.
