The Fudge Pot

We are visiting the Metzger’s and Ter’s mom in North Liberty, Iowa and enjoying much cooler temperatures here than in Austin! Since our good friends, Ann and Nick, were heading home in their RV from a long trip on the east coast, we suggested they stop by here to see us. They arrived a day after we did and are camping about 5 miles down the road from Jackie and Gregg’s house. We’ve watched the Texas vs. Texas Tech game on Pay for View here in Iowa, gone out for a big breakfast at a restaurant in the Amana Colonies, and shopped until we almost dropped at a nearby outlet mall. However, the biggest event of their stop here with us happened tonight after wonderful grilled pork steaks courtesy of Gregg. Nick made a big pot of fudge for us — 6 lbs. worth.

The batch filled 10 plastic one-half pound containers which we will enjoy later. But the best part was the fudge left in the pot — we each got a big spoon and almost made ourselves sick eating so much of the delicious warm fudge!

What amazes me is that Nick doesn’t eat fudge — how can he resist such a wonderful tasting treat, especially when it is warm, right out of the fudge pot!
