Picnic Cake

Hi all,

In the family cook book there was a recipe for picnic cake by Pat Nelson that I took out and can't find. It has dates and chocolate chips and is really good. We want to make it--would someone find it for me and post it? Gracias.

Oh, and a few minutes ago, I think I posted some comments under Wade's name, as he was signed in to google a few minutes ago! Sorry! It really was me, avoiding loading up the last of the dishes before going to sleep!

I'll give my mom a call and either have her post it or I will get it from her and post it.

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup shortening
1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. vanilla
