Making Stuff in the Kitchen Meme and Green Stuff Recipe

. at . Leave a comment

This meme (rhymes with dream) has 3 questions about making stuff in the kitchen. Dig

7th Self-Portrait Photo. Don’t these jars of apple pie filling look tasty? I will let you know how it tastes. I will also let you know if the crust was tender and cooked in the middle.

into your memory banks and write your answers. Here are mine . . .

1. SOMETHING I MAKE WELL . . . Two things I get asked to bring to family dinners are green stuff (recipe below) and potato salad. The secret ingredient in the potato salad is the peanuts. That recipe is here.

My mom introduced us to the fruity salad-type dessert that we called Green Stuff. Green Stuff, also known as Watergate Salad or Pistachio Pineapple Delight, was on the table at family holidays.

And now I continue that tradition minus the maraschino cherries. My mom always put in a jar of chopped maraschino cherries. I don’t because I don’t like how the cherries stain things like clothes, tablecloths, counters, fingers, etc. Plus I don’t like ingesting red dye.

Read on for the directions . . .

Dump the following 4 ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Chill at least an hour before serving.

  1. Pistachio instant vanilla pudding: 1  box (3-oz.) of the powder – do NOT make it with milk.
  2. Cool Whip: 1 carton – thawed (8-oz.)
  3. Cottage cheese: 1 carton (16-oz.)
  4. Crushed pineapple: 1 can (20-oz.)  (drained)

Apparently the Original Green Stuff Recipe called for marshmallows and pecans and NO cottage cheese or maraschino cherries.

Now I also make Orange Stuff for family dinners. It is similar to Green Stuff.  I first read the recipe here at Recipe Shoebox. My Orange Stuff recipe is here and is slightly different.

2. SOMETHING I’VE TAUGHT OTHERS TO MAKE . . . I had my kiddos help me in the kitchen while they were growing up. So I am sure I taught them to make many things.

But I am having a brain fade and the only thing that comes to mind is rice. Because as you know, rice is a staple and one of those foods that everyone should know how to cook.

Hopefully one of my kiddos will read this post and leave a comment.

3. SOMETHING I WANT TO LEARN TO MAKE . . . Well I have a whole list of things I want to learn food-wise at this post, a cooking-type bucket list.

But at this slice of time, I want to master pie making. I want to create and bake a pie that has a tender crust that is cooked even in the middle. I want to be skilled in different fillings from fluffy lemon meringue to hearty chicken pot pie.

NOTE: I found these questions online, but now can’t remember where. If you are the originator of them, please let me know so I can give proper attribution. And thanks.

_____________________________________________________________________________

During November I am writing or posting a photo about something for which I am grateful. This explains why. 

Gratitude for November 10: I am grateful for Facebook. It allows me to send birthday greetings, post my own status reports (lots of times things I want to look up later), learn some new things, and see how folks are doing. It clues me in as to who could use a phone call today.

Your Turn . . .

  1. It was fun answering these questions. Why don’t you answer these 3 Questions too? Write them here, on your own blog, or on your Facebook Home Page.
  2. Tell us something on your Gratitude List.

NOTE: This is the 7th photo in the series, A Fall of Self Portraits, from my Fall Bucket List.
