I feel like sharing a recipe to help celebrate the lingering days of summer. Our children here return to school August 23rd which, to me, cuts in a little on what remains of summer. I'm of an older generation, and we didn't used to reconvene at school until after Labor Day. As a child, everything always seemed forever long anyway. Remember?
We are forecast a week of rain showers ahead, and we did have a nice brief one today. It didn't last very long. All in all, we haven't had that much rain over the summer here. Certainly don't know how the gardens produce.
Here's a cool congealed salad treat to try while it's still warm weather:
Lime Jell-O Treat
1 pkg. Lime Jell-O
1 small pkg. Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
1 #2 can crushed pineapple
(optional - chopped pecans)
(optional - 1 cup grated carrots)
Directions: Make and set Jell-O according to pkg. directions. While this is setting up in the refrigerator, blend softened cream cheese and mayonnaise with mixer. Combine whole can crushed pineapple with cheese mixture. Stir this into nearly set Jell-O. Chill until firm. Serve on a lettuce bed and enjoy!
We are working on the production of a memorial type cookbook of my daughter's recipes since she was an avid "foodie". I'm sure that's what got me in this share recipe mood.
Take care and check back tomorrow for another FREEBIE for your digi-scrapping!
