Relax - are you ready for Christmas?
To all who are feeling uptight about the coming Holiday events. Please take heed. I try not to tell anyone what to do. Who'd listen anyway? Here's my Christmas de-stressing recipe. Not that you're stressed. I forgot if I am or not! If one of you sent this to me originally . . . I forgot that too. I've edited it just to make it . . . better. Jean


1 cup of water
l cup butter

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar

4 large eggs

1 cup nuts

2 cups of dried fruit

1 bottle Jose Cuervo Tequila

Sample the Cuervo to check quality. Assemble large bowl and spoons, mixers etc.

check the Cuervo again, to be sure it is of the highest quality,

pour one level cup and drink.

Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter

in a large fluffy bowl.

Add one peastoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point

it's best to make sure the Cuervo is still ok, just in case.

Turn off the mixerer thingy.

Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup

of dried fruit.

If you miss pick the fruit up off the floor.

Mix on the turner.

If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaters just pry

it loose with a drewscriver.

Sample the Cuervo to check for tonsisticity.

Next, sift two cups of salt, or something, doesn't really matter..

. Check the Jose Cuervo. Now shift the lemon juice . . . . Damn! The idiot who sent me this recipe occluded lemon juice.

Add one table.

Add a spoon of sugar, get the spoon out of there.

Find and greash the oven.

Don't forget to beat off the turner.

Finally, finish the

Cose Juervo and make sure to put the stove in the wishdasher.

Not sure about your stress methods. It sure beats yoga for me.

Ooh, I have to try this! Thanks for sharing! Do you suppose it would be just as good if I substitute a bottle (or two) of wine for the tequila?
