Hi everyone! Happy Holiday Season! Today (if the world didn’t end), I asked my good friend, Bonnie Paulson, to talk about zombies. Enjoy! 🙂
Who isn’t talking about some kind of apocalypse these days? Like a delicious rumor making its rounds on the gossip mill. The incomplete Mayan calendar foretold today is the day for the end of the world *cue doom music*.
Welp! You’re reading this post which means they’re wrong, right? Unless it has posted to an empty world at which this is a huge waste of time… or the perfect opportunity to get some confessions off my chest – but I digress.
Oooh! Or maybe the zombie virus has been successfully created and the exponential contraction will culminate at midnight tonight. That might work. Especially if the zombies make it quick and painless (yeah, right).
What are your plans for the last day on earth? I wish I could say I had ah-mazing plans, but I’m the one who worked on the eve of Y2K while the rest of the world partied and stressed. I’ll probably hang with my kids and work on Christmas projects like fudge and cookies.
Now there’s an event worth thinking about. Christmas. How will you spend it? I hope with family and friends. Because the apocalypse will come or not, but Christmas is next week and you don’t want to waste the chance to make terrific memories – even if they have nothing to do with running from zombies or trying to carve out a new calendar.
And an aside, for those of you who have been lucky enough to meet Rebecca Zanetti, you know what I know – how sweet she is and how generous. We had a family situation a few weeks ago and she sent me flowers. So the apocalypse can come and go, but I’ve got me some lilies and roses to carry me through with the kids and apparently soon I’ll have fudge… Lemon fudge.
*light bulb* I never share my recipes, but since the world has ended, it’s not technically sharing, is it? Okay, here is my recipe for lemon fudge and it takes less than 10 minutes and needs 5 ingredients. Easy. Ready?
Lemon Cake Batter Fudge
- 1 cup lemon cake mix (box – NOT with pudding in the mix – will never set)
- 1 cup powdered sugar (confectioner’s sugar)
- ¼ milk
- ½ stick butter (1/2 cup)
- White chocolate chips
Directions: Mix dry ingredients. Add milk and butter DO NOT MIX. Put in microwave for 2 minutes. Pull out and immediately stir until the consistency is like that of cake batter. Put in greased bread pan, smooth. Top with white chocolate chips and put in fridge. After it’s set, cut up and EAT.
Now that’s how to end the world… with Lemon Fudge. Add a good book and the world might wait for you.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
