Old Fashioneds, that is. I've had one. I decided my next big treat after work was going to be Old Fashioneds- but, really- one or two??? My traditional after work treat has been a cup of fresh brewed (with tea leaves) tea, but dang, I need alcohol after my job. (My job is doling out Obamacare to the hordes of California) So, OK, I like Old Fashioneds. I have the ingredients. But, one or two. I can still function after one, but after two? Hmmmm, coma time.
And I have sort of researched the interwebs and found that the blogs that feature recipes get a lot of visits. So, to pump up my numbahs, here is my favorite all time recipe:
TEQUILA CHRISTMAS CAKE RECEIPE
again this year, I've had requests for my Tequila Christmas Cake recipe
so here goes: Please keep in your files as I am beginning to get tired
of typing this up every year!
1 cup sugar ... 1 tsp. baking powder 1 cup water 1 tsp. salt 1 cup brown sugar Lemon juice 4 large eggs Nuts 1 bottle tequila 2 cups dried fruit
Sample the tequila to check quality.
Take a large bowl; check the tequila again to be sure it is of the highest quality. Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer.
Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl.
Add 1 teaspoon of sugar. Beat again.
At this point, it is best to make sure the tequila is still OK.
Try another cup just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy.
Break 2 eegs and add to the bowl and chuck iin the cup of dried fruit.
Pick the fruit up off the floor. Mix on the turner.

One of the few recipes that needs to be passed on!

One of my daughters was matron of honor in a wedding in the northern CA area this December. The venue was the Tavern at Lark Creek, http://www.tavernatlarkcreek.com/
My daughter sent me some photos of the ladies' bathroom. The tavern is unique and in the midst of the redwoods. There is wood trim and paneling, and a gigantic skylit room for the recption, which is visible on the website.
