10 Dec Mon: If it is not one thing it is another!! I broke out with Excema down the entire right side of my body. I am absolutely miserable. Already been to the Doctor! Never had this before and am trying to learn everything about it and what to do.
6 Dec Thurs: Finally got rid of the gorilla sitting on my chest. I have been doing Christmas Cards this week. It is to late to send packages-so they will get sent the day after Christmas.

FAVORITE CHRISTMAS RECIPE: Try it once and let me know what you think!
EVER-SO-EASY FRUITCAKE 2-1/2 Cups Unsifted Flour 1 teaspoon Baking Soda 2 Eggs, slightly beaten 1 (28-oz) jar Non Such Ready-to-Use Mincemeat 1 (14-oz) can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk) 2 Cups (1-lb) Mixed Candied Fruit 1 Cup coarsely chopped Nuts
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Generously grease a 9 inch Tube pan (here is where I coat with Sugar not flour) Sift together flour & Baking Soda; set aside. In large bowl, combine remaining ingredients; blend in dry ingredients. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 1 hour-15 minutes. Cool 15 minutes. Turn out pan. Garnish as desired-I sprinkle with Powdered Sugar. TIP: When cooled thoroughly; wrapped in aluminum foil; refrigerate or freeze. *I have a 6-part individual fluted pan that I use which is great for Gift giving.
