made 6 loafs of fruit cake today. I never heard of anyone saving their fruit cake for a year. One time it been said if you save a fruitcake for a year that you’ll have good luck for anther year. So now I know why they sock fruit cake in brandy.
But I still need to go and get brandy to put my fruit cake in.
I was planning on making some peanut brittle couldn’t find my candy thromonter.
3 of my friends and families will receive homemade goodies for Christmas. The lucky people is my client Callie, my friend Alice, and my friend Quenelle.
Today Sawyer took the S.A.T and he said it was the hardest test that he every took. Today we stop at Murphy sister Faith and ask what was the best way to do oyster on the shell. She explain it to Murphy and let him use her shocking knife. To me it almost look like a hoof pick, what you clean out horse hoofs.
On the way to store we stopped at the fair grounds. So I could give my friend Alice a birthday card. She’ll be 55 tomorrow. Yesterday and today they had a craft sale at our local fairground and Alice was selling her Jams and other stuff. It was pretty slow when I went their. Even Alice said it was slow. I look at her sell sheet it look like she sold about $65 dollar worth the stuff. In her birthday card I stuck in one lottery scratch ticket, pays up to $4000. Gee I sure hope she wins something.
For an adult birthday present I always give a card and put in one dollar lottery scratch ticket To the best of my knowledge I never gave anyone a winning ticket.
So we stop at our local store and was going to get some oyster on the shell. A dozen for $4.98 and they was out. So Chicken breast was on sale. So we cut the chicken breast up in strip and coated then with shake and bake.
Still getting uses to this new computer. I have yet figured out how to get pictures to show up from my Cd’s and I can’t get callwave to work in this computer. Plus this computer has word perfect and it sort Of Greek to me.
