Christmas is magical.
My parents always made Christmas magical for us...

Last Saturday the theme for P.S. was food and I just didn't have time to get anything ready. So I'm going to try to catch up with this recipe for a tasty PINK loaf of bread:
Maraschino Nut Loaf
1 cup of sugar
1 jar (8 ounce) red maraschino cherries
1 cup milk or syrup from cherries with enough milk to make 1 cup
3 cups of pre-sifted flour
4 teaspoons double action baking powder
2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
½ cup walnuts, chopped
Beat eggs and sugar. Add cherries and milk. Add flour, baking powder; then add melted cooled butter. Add chopped nuts. Pour into well greased 9” x 5” x 2-3/4” loaf pan and bake in oven at 350 degrees for approximately one hour or until toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. The top of the loaf will be irregular. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
