Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving -- how about a couple recipes....
Grandmother Wood's Poundcake
3 sticks butter, softened
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla
Cream margarine and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time.  Mix together salt, baking powder and flour.  Add the flour mixture alternately with milk ending with flour.  Mix in the flavoring.  Pour into a greased and floured tube pan.  Bake in a preheated (325º) oven for 90 minutes.  The cake is done when it springs back when lightly touched and pulls away from the sides of the pan.  Let stand for 10 minutes when you remove it from the oven.  Remove from the pan and cool completely on a rack.
Grandma Lucille's Famous Baked Beans
1 (52 oz.) can of pork and beans
1 (31 oz.) can of pork and beans
1 bottle (32 oz.) King Syrup
If you can't find King Syrup -- the dark Karo syrup will work.  Pour the liquid out of the 31 oz. can of beans and half of the liquid out of the 52 oz. can.  Combine the cans of beans with about 2/3 of a bottle of syrup in a baking dish.  Top the beans with strips of bacon.  Bake in a 350º oven until thick and bubbly -- aproximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
I have a pound cake in the oven right now and the beans will be cooked later today.
Happy Thanksgiving!
