We are so thankful…

My daughter-in-law, Susie, found her way to Texas from the Midwest just like I did.

Our recipe boxes have several recipes in common. This smooth, creamy and mellow Peanut Butter Fudge for one. Homemade egg noodles cooked in chicken broth is another. Both our grandmas made these.  And both of us enjoy sharing them with our Texas family and friends.

A fond memory…

Susie was sick one day while staying with her grandmother when her parents were out of town. So sick, in fact, she couldn’t make it to school. But apparently not so ill that she couldn’t lick the fudge pan clean. It was a fun day she still remembers fondly.

Are you a smooth or crunchy peanut butter fan?

No matter. You can use either in this simple recipe
