Bye for a while

This postwhore will say goodbye for a while. I haven't felt like posting in here lately or the two groups in which I am a member. I don't know whether it is the holidays,the weather,my relationships or all of the above that has gotten me down. I haven't made the decision to leave this site and will stop to peek in to see how everyone is doing, but I will not be posting as much as I was until I am feeling better. But I will leave you with a recipe.

2c flour

2 eggs,beaten
1/2c chopped pecans
