This year we had 9 teachers to buy gifts for. 6 for middle school, one for elementary school, and 2 for preschool. Not wanting to get another "Best teacher" gift or ornament, I decided to make fudge. Not just any fudge.... Alton Brown's peanut butter fudge. When the boys came home I asked for an update. L replied, "the fudge was a hit." W added, that his teacher thanked him several times while she was eating it in front of the class. Then L told me that several teachers munched on theirs during class also. One even told him that it could be dangerous, because she was on a diet. But the funniest story came the following morning from the husband of L's math teacher. (we rent their land) He called me to personally thank me for the fudge. His wife came home and paraded it around in front of him. Normally he doesn't eat anything that comes from school (he was the elementary school principal for years) and asked her who made it, and if it was CLEAN, lol. By now I was laughing hysterically! He said she gave him some and it was delish. I told him Landon came home and was distraught over there not being a "Daddy Batch". "Tell Landon it was mouth watering", Chuck replied laughing.
