Two more recipes......

dandelions in the fall....

These are two recipes from my Nana:

Fruit Salad in a Jar

1 pkg vanilla pudding (must be the cook-n-serve)

1 pkg tapioca pudding

1 tall can mandarin oranges or peaches

1 (14oz) tall can chunk pineapples or tidbits

3 to 5 bananas, cut in slices (add the day you serve)

Add enough water to juices from oranges and pineapple to make 3 cups. Add vanilla and
tapioca pudding and stir. Cook until thick. (Bring to a boil, stir, and don't let it stick) mixture will
be clear. Cool. I usually put it in the freezer for a short time. Add fruits and put in a jar.
This is attractive in a Mason Jar or a pretty glass bowl. Add bananas on the day you serve.

Pink Puff

1 sm. can crushed pineapple drained
1 sm. container cottage cheese
1 sm. container Cool Whip
1 pkg. strawberry or cranberry jello
Mix incredients and refrigerate 2 hours

My Mema used to make the pink puff. I think I'll try it this year. Thanks for the recipe.

I bet that fruit salad would be cute served in a glass jar. Sounds good too!

Deb, I want to thank you for the sweet comments you leave for me at Southern Lagniappe. They mean a lot to me.

I love your header picture -- it's perfect for fall.

Best wishes for a happy Thursday!

Hi Deb,
I love the recipe for fruit salad in a jar! We both have vanilla pudding in our recipies! What would we do without vanilla pudding?! Yum! Have a great day. Hugs, Loretta

Oh Deb that pink puff recipe looks good. We used to make something like that but with orange jello. I might have to make that for Thanksgiving this year.
Thanks for sharing,

Laura said...

What great recipes. Thank you Miss Deb!

What are your diet/food plans for Thanksgiving?

These both sound very yummy. The pink puff is similar to a recipe I make, but has no cottage cheese and you add marachino cherries. Thank s for sharing some of your favorites!
