Ok, since I don't have any sewing to talk about, I thought I'd post a recipe.
We have a very strict Thanksgiving menu at our house; everyone has something special that they require for it to be 'Thanksgiving Dinner'.
One of these dishes is my Aunt Judy's Apple Salad. She began bringing it to family gatherings when I was a school kid and it became a requirement. Now I have my own copy of the recipe and yes, it's part of our annual Thanksgiving feast miles and miles away from the rest of the family. Here' tis:
Aunt Judy's Apple Salad:
( make the congealed portion the day before the meal)
2 3-oz pkg Lime Jello
2 c small marshmallows
4 large red apples, cored and chopped
1 15 oz can crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 c. chopped pecans
Place Jello and marshmallows into a 9x13 pan; pour 2 c boiling water over and stir until the marshmallows are dissolved. Add 1 cup cold water to cool, then add apples, pineapple and nuts. Refrigerate overnight. Next day, add the dressing.
3/4 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs, beaten
Juice of 1 lemon
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
In a saucepan, beat together sugar, eggs and lemon juice. Cook until thick. Let it cool completely, then fold into the whipped cream and spread over the set jello.
