|Because that's like 370 pounds of raisin there-- not to mention the currants and candied this & that and local pecans.|
I hope you like fruitcake.
This is funny.
Independently, both Mr. Big Food and I thought that we would make a fruit cake. (Great minds & all.) And then we realized we both had the same thought and so immediately someone screamed "FRUITCAKE CONTEST" and we went running for our recipes.
And then cooler headers prevailed. Why couldn't we both just make fruitcakes and enjoy the fruitcakes?
But of course you need stuff for fruitcake. So you go on a wild Christmas goose chase searching for the stuff you need.

And then you are home. And you lay out all of the stuff you need for fruitcake on the table.
I began work on my fruitcake today. It takes 12 pounds of sugar.
