I just did the most random thing...
It was 2am and i couldn't sleep and i couldn't do work.... so i decided to make fudge
Sticky, sweet, utterly unhealthy fudge. Don't know why but i just felt like making it and it seemed like a good idea at the time.
So i did.
If you've ever made fudge you'll know that it's a fierce little candy when it's cooking.. it bubbles ferociously and threatens to erupt out of the pot even though the actual liquid itself is less that 1/4 the height of the pot. The more it boils down the more feisty it seems to get (and the higher up the pot sides it seems to climb). It fills the house with this amazingly yummy smell of butter and milk and syrup all cooking happily together.. It has a wonderfully vibrant "bubbly" sound too.. *nice* Quite the sensory experience this whole 'making fudge' thing..
Me feels like a Fudge Fairy bestowing fudge upon those who need a bit of sugar (okay, a LOT) to brighten their day :D
Now if only it will harden properly and not keep crumbling to pieces *sobs*
The thought of a warm pan of buttermilk (it smells and tastes like butter and milk therefore the it must be buttermilk.. right??) and chocolate layered fudge on the counter top kinda makes me all warm and fuzzy inside :D
I think i can sleep now...
