I made fudge!!!!
I made maple fudge today. I had to make something "Canadian" for Reina's class. I adore fudge, but you just think about the ingredients and can get fat! Found this great food blog. Wow. She has some good stuff.
The best school field trip ever was in the third grade, when I still lived in Montreal and we visited a real maple syrup farm in eastern Canada. It was really beautiful there, hundreds of maple trees. The farm had tons of sap churning and evaporating into syrup and then made into all sorts of candies. Yes, we got samples.
