Milkmaid's Recipe Box

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.

You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

Fruity Fruit Salad

Whether you make it 'tropical' or 'traditional', this is an easy/quick fruity fruit salad.*  

You could make this by using your own favorite 'go together' fruits!

The pecan halves give this a bit (bite?) of occasional 'crunch'!

Mix together:
1 of 15 oz. can mandarin oranges, drained
1 of 20 oz. can Pineapple tidbits or chunks, drained
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup shredded or flake coconut (optional)
1 cup green OR red seedless grapes, halved. 
1 cup pecan halves

Beat together the next two ingredients, and put over fruit mixture:
1 cup sour cream
1 of 8 oz. cream cheese

*VARIATION for the creamy 'sauce':
Some choose to use a mixture of prepared vanilla instant pudding (using 1/2 cup less milk than called for) and smoothly beaten cream cheese over the fruit.

  Chill.  Serve.
