"I don't care. NEXT WINTER we're going south."
Our plum tree ten days ago.
Our plum tree this afternoon.
Tonight the wind is howling. Snow is drifting and schools are closed.

There were no figs at our grocery so I substituted chopped dates and raisins.
I didn't have Madeira so I used cranberry juice.
And I added some peeled chopped apples.
And I didn't know what quark soft cheese was so I made a cream cheese frosting.
And chances of finding kumquats were zero so I didn't even look.
And I baked it in a bundt cake pan.
So essentially the cake was nothing like Sarah's recipe.
But it was really, really good.
This is the only photo I got before it disappeared.
Things are going to get real crazy around here for the next few days
so I'm putting blogging on the back burner and pies and turkey in the oven.
THANK YOU to everyone who reads and comments on this goofy little blog.
Travel safe and eat, drink and be merry!
