Pink Saturday, December 11, 2010 ~ The Magic of Christmas

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
2 eggs
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.


This week the theme is "your favorite holiday movies" I enjoy many of the old holiday movies but my favorite is "Gift Of The Magi." In a perfect world I would have posted pictures of a beautiful hair comb and a pocket watch chain. Perhaps next year.

Happy pink Saturday. Please stop by "How Sweet The Sound" to say hello to our Pink Saturday hostess Beverly. From there you will be able to click on the links to other PS participants.
