That sounds good. Do the black olives play nicely with all the fruit? :unsure:

I'm liking that a lot, thanks for posting it, already got it printed up, I'll see what the Finance Minister/War Department thinks of it.

Hi Rich, I sure hope you make it. I don't mean to sound like a cry baby, but hardly anyone over the years I have been posting recipes, ever let's me know if they make them. I have been checking a lot of recipes lately that I have posted and sad to say, most of them have 0 replys. (thankfully a lot of them do have a lot of viewers, but :unsure: it is hard to tell if anyone does make the recipe.)

I understand. I wrote your name on it and we put it into our do soon folder. Can't say exactly when we will do it, but with your name on it that should trigger me to let you know how we liked it.
