Infused with love! You must have had a wonderful mother, Daniel!

You're probably right Carl.  I enjoyed fruitcakes when I was young, and they were all homemade.  The very few I've had in the last few decades were store bought, and I did not like them.

Perhaps people dislike the commercial made and store bought fruitcakes which have become the butt of so many jokes and disdain.  To my knowledge I've only eaten homemade my entire life.

Spare ribs sound delicious.  I've wanted to make rips in my slow-cooker.  Have just never gotten around to it.  Maybe I'll make that a New Year resolution.

Now that you mentioned it, Carl, I've changed my mind. I forgot how good my mother's fruitcakes were. Nuttier and not "gummy".

I'm thinking about treating myself to spare ribs for my Christmas dinner. Something different.

Carl, I'm glad you get a mother-baked fruitcake.  I loved that my mother sent them years ago.  It was like it was infused with love.

Spud, Im glad you liked the coctail weenie christmas tree!  I actually used to make aspic before I was vegetarian.  I don't know why people think it's so bad now.  The one there was kind of pretty. 

We can beat the Ruskis in the Mayonnaise Cold War, if we return to our roots with traditional Mayonnaise recipes.  About the only thing I use it for is potato salad and the occasional sandwich.

I'm going to stand out in the crowd here and say that I've always liked fruitcake.  My mother makes it in November, soaks it in brandy, and then lets it sit in the refrigerator until Xmas.  Yum!

Yes, those retro food pictures are revolting!  At first I thought the upright bananas were baby corn until I read the description.

Cocktail weenie tree looks good.

Who eats the most mayo in the world?  Russians average 5.1 kg per person per year!  Then there's that Japanese Mayo Potato Pizza!

I'm with you, Randy; never been a fan of fruitcake, even if it has real fruit instead of that gross citron crap.

Comment by Randall Smith on December 21, 2016 at 8:31am

Fruitcake by itself is bad enough! Wow--yuck. And those phallic looking bananas.....
