If you missed the Nutcracker, you missed a good program. We have so many very talented youth in our hometown. This week I’m going to do some I hope you will like.

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

2 T sugar

If you like fruit cake this is a good one to fix. 

2 cups brown sugar

2/3 cup shortening

2 cups water

2 cups raisins

2 cup currants

2 t cinnamon

1 t cloves

1 t nutmeg

1/2 t allspice

1 t salt

Stir this mixture together and cook for three minutes. Cool, then add 4 cups flour, 2 t soda, 2 t baking powder, 1 1/2 cups nuts (your choice). Bake in two well-greased loaf pans for 45 minutes. This will keep a long time. Most people wrap in wax paper and put in a tin.

I hope you all have a great week, and like I always say, live, laugh and love and remember to spend time with family and friends. God bless you all.
