Opening my mind to fruitcake

MrsBridges | Nov 7, 2012 05:31 PM

After too many years of laughing at fruitcake jokes, I've decided it's time to open my mind to the possibility that the mass-produced crap has given a bad name to a noble tradition. So, I am going to buy a fruitcake from a reputable source for a fair trial.

My husband has great admiration for the monastic tradition, so I'm going to buy one of the mail order monastery fruitcakes. I'm considering the Gethsemani monastery in Kentucky, the Abbeyville monastery in Missouri, or the Holly Cross monastery in Virginia. I'd appreciate any input or recommendations from fruitcake-loving CHs.
