What a difference a day makes....

 

Yesterday it was sunny, warm 65 / 70 degrees and beautiful but today the fog really never completely lifted over the ocean. COLD, damp and gray. Still walk along the beach, got a chill to the bones even though I was all wrapped up. Came in and made a cup of hot coco spiked with Peppermint Schnapps. Hit the spot.

By the way, I'm on a quest. I think I'm one of the few people who likes eating fruit cake! And I couldn't find it in any store! Not even in th ehigh end, over priced Bristol Farms. So decided to bake my own. Does anyone out there have a good fruit cake recipe? If so please e-mail it to me!

Happy 2009!

Oh spiking the drink is the way to go for sure. It is a little damp and overcast here, but very humid and hot. Still, it is meant to be fine again by the end of the weekend. I like fruit cake, but I don't make it, so have no decent recipe. If I come across one via friends, I'll send it on.

I know some good ones, but it takes months to soak the fruit in drink-ahol. I picked one up at a local anglophile store down here and it was OK.

Here's a couple of links that look good.

Alternatively if you'd care to I'd be up for a fruitcake pact to try for next years holiday.

A beach combined with the cocoa-peppermint schnapps sounds perfect.

I was married to a guy who LOVED fruitcake. Will send you the recipe(s).
