BEST Fudge Bar!

BEST Fudge Bar!
Originally uploaded by Unkoine.
When I was a young girl, my mom used to buy the BEST fudge bars. I could sit and eat them forever, because they were so yummy and fudgy and chocolatey. When I got older, I bought some fudge bars myself, expecting them to taste just as good. NONE of them tasted right. They were all too light in color, and just melted away too fast. I think they were made with chocolate ice cream instead of fudge. I was SO mad.

I looked for years and years, trying every brand of fudge bar I could find. They were all so disappointing. The box usually ended up in the trash can before they ran out, because they just tasted WRONG.

Well, tonight I saw a different brand of fudge bar, and looked at the box long and hard. I was very tempted, but was thinking, "They'll probably taste awful, and it will be a waste of money."

I brought them home, stuck them in the freezer and started dinner. A few hours later, I went to the kitchen for a glass of water. I opened the freezer to get some ice, and saw the fudge bars sitting there. I decided to try one, expecting to be let down.

I opened the wrapper, and my eyes popped open. DARK fudgy chocolate was peeking out at me from the wrapper! THIS looked like what I had as a little girl. I smelled it, and it smelled rich and chocolatey. By now, I was almost jumping up and down. I took a bite, then threw my arms up in the air for joy!


Thank you, Mayfield Dairy Farms!

Chick-Fil-A Cow

My husband Marvin is a manager for Chick-Fil-A. He has just been relocated to manage a brand new store in Charlotte. During the grand opening festivities, there was a special visit from Dan Cathy, the President of Chick-Fil-A.

We had our annual choir retreat today at First Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was a nice day, with lovely music and fun fellowship. :)
