Throwback Thursday

For our first Throwback Thursday we thought we'd start with something appropriately fruity ;)

We are both fruitcake lovers and I know what you're thinking - what? that cakey brick that gets passed around from family member to family member each Christmas? The stuff with an expiry date of December 12th, 2012? To that we say: No. Not that stuff. This is the REAL fruitcake, where practically every ingredient in the recipe is listed in the amount of one pound: Sugar, 1lb! Flour, 1lb! Butter, 1lb! Candied Cherries, 1lb! ... basically you end up with about ten pounds of cake batter poured into three tins and baked for a pound- I mean a few hours. And it's delish!

Hey, check out those aprons! Usually there's about TWO pounds of flour on Lara's. This particular fruitcake making shot was taken in 2004.

OK, anything with one lb. of sugar sounds good to me! I'm a sugaraholic (yes, I made that up).

What a fun photo of you two!!
