Christmas Fruit Cake

Christmas in Panama is a very important family event.  Families celebrate Christmas Eve at home together with their children.  Presents are always present, pardon for the unintended pun.  The houses are full of twinkling lights, Christmas carols vibrate throughout the neighborhood and there is lots of food.

For us Christmas is not complete without a delicious fruit cake.  This year my wife decided to bake one instead of buying it at PriceCostco as she did last year.  As you probably know, my wife is the best cook in town.  I’m a lucky man with a most satisfied stomach.  On several instances I have published snapshots of her finger-licking dishes.  This time I will include a couple of pictures of a Christmas fruit cake.  Today I will cut the cake during lunch time.  Can’t wait.  Here we go.

Merry Christmas to all the readers of Lingua Franca.  2014 was a memorable year.  I hope the trend continues in the upcoming year 2015.  “Champagne wishes and caviar dreams” as Robin Leach  used to say at the end of his popular television episodes.  Good Day.

  1. Hi Linda,

    That is too big a bite for me alone. I guess somebody else will have to help me out. I sure looks tasty, doesn’t it?

    Yep, I sure will enjoy it to the last crumb. 🙂

    Merry Christmas to you too. Now it’s time to celebrate the end of 2015, and on we go as life continues and the clock goes tic-toc, tic-toc.



  2. Hi there Desley:

    You know what? The more I read about traditions and cultures of different countries, the more I’m convinced that the world is not that big. In many ways we are just a tiny marble spinning in space.

    If this is so, why so much violence? Beats me???

    Are you flying as we speak?



    1. Hi John & Susan:

      I’m so sorry. I really don’t know. That’s my wife’s Department. I’ll ask her and let you know on this same site.

      Thank you for your interest on this fruit cake.
