Fruitcake

Kirkland Traditional Fruitcake
I like fruitcake. I am the only one in my family who does. The girls think it is gross. The boys don't care because it isn't pizza or beer. But I like it, so when we were at Costco yesterday I picked one up. $16, which is kind of a chunk of money, but each fruitcake contains about a zillion calories, so each calorie costs 16,000 zillionths of a cent, which means it's like the cheapest food in the world. All you have to do is dole it out slowly. If you do it right, it could last a month.

Jezebel has an entertaining story about fruitcake. So does Catholic Vote (wait, what? Catholics vote for fruitcake?)

I like fruitcake too. I just made my second batch last night. You may (or, more likely, may not) remember the recipe I posted on my now-defunct blog.

(That link will probably get me sent to the spam filter. Oh, well. I've been there before. The food's not bad.)

Yeah! All us fruitcakes need to stick together!
