About Me

I've been a female working a "man's job" (mechanical engineer), stay at home Mom (6 kids), working Mom (6 kids to put through college), unemployed, underemployed, temporarily employed and now working from home! We live on an old, small farm with 2 dogs and 2 cats in the house, variable number of chickens out in the yard.

Journal Archives

So, MSNBC is predicting the Republicans hold the House -

How? Is it all due to gerrymandering?

12:15 EDT: Anyone else see Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell just now?

I think I heard them mumble that turnout is very high, then rush on to say that that doesn't mean anything, and we should all wait until the votes get counted tonight.

OK - serious fruitcake questions:

I make my fruitcake using real dried fruit soaked in Irish mist (Thompson raisins, Red Gold raisins, Zante currants, Bing and Rainier cherries and diced apricots), a honey based batter and lots of spices.

So - this is the first year I've been organized to make the cake well ahead of time.

How early should I make it?

I generally soak the finished product with more Irish Mist. If I make the cake several weeks before Christmas, do I wrap the cake? In what?

I have a couple bottles of German Kirsch liquor. Any advice on a recipe (cake or cookies) using dried cherries and the liquor?

OK - two more hours of Halloween left: how soon should I make my Christmas fruitcake?
