Her question was, "What holiday food do you anticipate every year?" And my reply, of course, was FRUIT CAKE!
Here's what I wrote on her website...
"FRUIT CAKE! Alright, I know I stand in the minority on this one. I'm not talking about those cheap fruitcakes that you can pick up in the holiday section of the local grocery. No, no, no! I'm talking about real, honest-to-goodness, homemade FRUIT CAKE! Decadence for sure! And, Hey! If YOUR grandmother sends you her famous home-made cake every Christmas and if your usual procedure is to dump it down the disposal (after a reasonable time, of course), please send it to me. I could eat this stuff year round. FRUIT CAKE!!!!!! And, no, I am not one."
I really, really do like good fruit cake. But it has to be Good Fruit Cake.
Maybe I should get out a recipe NOW and make one. A Good Fruit Cake takes time to cure to its best goodness.
And, No, I repeat again, I Am Not A FruitCake! You may or may not think the Pioneer Woman is a Fruit Cake. But I repeat!!! I Am Not!
