Here we are again folks…another real life story from behind my bifocals. You know…Life for all of us seems to happen and we all face challenges and I like to share mine with you in the hopes you can see the brighter side of life in the challenges that come up for you.

 If I can bring a smile to your wee lips, then I feel my mission is accomplished.  These stories are real life happenings to me and my family with perhaps a tiny bit of exaggeration, and I’d like to share them with you. Sometimes, like this podcast, they may be exceptionally short and well others could be a bit lengthier.

Once 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! I am dictating this as I am also making my special cake as I speak. Here goes…

1 cup sugar, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 cup water, 1 tsp. salt, 1 cup brown sugar, squeeze of lemon juice, 4 large eggs, ½ c. of nuts, 1 bottle tequila, 2cups 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. If the fried druit get as stuck in the beaterers, just pry it loose with a drewscriver.

Hey gotta Sample the tequila again to test for tonsisticity. Next, sift 2 cups of salt, or something. Check the tequila. Now shift the lemon ice strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven.

Turn the cake tin 360 s and try not to fall over. Don’t forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window. Finish the tequila and wipe the counter with
the cranky cat.
