Season's Eatings

Tis the season to eat! It is also the season of too much to do and too little time. So while I am trying to get myself ready for the holidays, I thought I would whet your appetite with some of my favorite easy recipe from posts past and one item from a friend that I haven't been brave enough to try.

First, the item I haven't tried yet:

Lime Cottage Cheese Mold
  • 2 small or 1 lg. pkg. Lime Jello
  • 1 lb. cottage cheese, mashed with fork
  • 2 c. boiling water
  • ½ c. salad dressing (Miracle Whip)
  • ½ c. whipped cream
  • 1 Tbl. Chopped onion
  • 2 Tbl. Grated carrot
  • 2 Tbl. Grated green peppers
Mix all ingredients except whipped cream. Let jell for about 20 minutes in the refrigerator. Remove and gently fold in whipped cream, and refrigerate until jelled. Nice when made in a pretty Jello mold – Tupperware has a good one for this purpose.
This one comes from Jackie of The Pleasant Pheasant who I met through the Polymer Clay Artist Guild of Etsy. She admits that it is a "love it" or "hate it" family tradition. I'm curious! Maybe I'll get brave and take it to my sister's house for Christmas. :)

Now for some memories from Creative Sprinkle posts past:

  1. Mash that cottage cheese good, tell your sister it's a "salad" and bring it! It's so good, I'm not kidding you... :)
    P.S. I use a potato masher to mash the cottage cheese. Don't make it runny or anything....


Ooh,a comment! How delightful.
