Maybe it's my background, but I keep thinking as long as I eat, I will be alright. For the past weeks, I've lost weight no matter how much food I force down - apparently there's a word for this, catabolic, which means tumours consume calories voraciously. A lot of the time it has been hard to eat, but following the stent operation, and as I have started to get better from the "yellow peril" the following has been my food of choice. It's Anthony's mother's Myrna's recipe, via her good friend Gloria, I think, and here it is:
1/2 lb butter/Tomor
1/2 lb caster sugar
1/2 lb plain flour
4 eggs slightly beaten
and here comes the good bit: 500 grms fruit mix, made up from dried: dates (chopped), mango, pineapple, apricots, sour cherrries, cranberries and also one third of a bar of good, dark chocolate chopped into not too small pieces.
Oven 150 degrees centigrade
Cream butter and sugar; add egg and flour alternately, then the fruit which has been thoroughly mixed
bake one and a half hours, or until skewer comes out clean
Take it from me, this is good food.
