A Cool Summer Recipe from Queen Mimi and Her Crazy Facebook Friends

(but I mean crazy in the fondest way)
So, in my usual "Good morning Facebook people" fashion I announced this on my timeline. that I'd "cooked" this last night, opened the door to the fridge this morning and found it still alive.

Only to be met with.. 
Everyone's a comedian these days

Do they know me or what? Thanks Amanda! (I think...)

That Princess Patti is a laugh a minute.

And Janice, just because you have your own cooking blog(s) and can make a corn tortilla from scratch and caramelize onions doesn't mean you can cook orange salad.  I know how to pick corn too ya know.

My masterpiece
I have no idea why there is a spoon dent in the side of the bowl.

RECIPE: Mix 1 box of orange jello (or any color) with 1 carton of cottage cheese. Fold in 1 can of (drained) mandarin oranges and 1 can of (drained) chunky pineapple. Set aside a few pieces of fruit for garnish. Add 1 carton of fat free cool whip. Mix all. Decorate with fruit. Cover and refrigerate. It settles into a thickness that is yummy. I use lowfat ingredients and sugarfree jello.

Many thanks to Nancy Marini for a great pork recipe that I'm using with the chicken. 

I'll be back later. I'm going to try to caramelize my macaroni.

Carmelized macaroni?


Pork recipe for chicken?


Mimi Lenox said...

But Princess, Nancy said she thought it would work with chicken and if there's anyone I trust with recipes it's Nancy. **crossing fingers**

Mimi Lenox said...

You mean you don't caramelize your macaroni?

I just did a chicken salad with coconut, pineapple, sliced almonds, and green onions with a dressing of mayonaise, horseradish, hot mustard.

Mimi Lenox said...

Please send recipe...I have almonds!

You should try out for Masterchef.

Mimi Lenox said...

LOL Charles! Very funny.

Seriously, I watch Masterchef in utter amazement. I can't understand a word they're saying.

Sounds healthy and successful. And it didn't even start a fire.

Oh...I'm going to the dungeon for that one, right?
