Tuesday's Terrific Food

Looks like we're going to be short a couple of posts this week. We'll be out of town for Thanksgiving so I'll either skip Thurs and Fri or do them ahead. We'll see. I'm doing pretty good with keeping on track of things and planning ahead. One thing I'm planning to make is my mama's cranberry salad. Since Mama's been celebrating in Heaven for the last 3 years, I'm carrying on by making Thanksgiving dinner for my dad and brother and the grandkids. This recipe was always one of my favorites. Super easy and a good alternative to the old can of cranberry sauce. Give it a try!

Mama's Cranberry Salad

2 boxes cranberry Jello
1 can whole cranberry sauce
1 can mandarin oranges, drained (you can use a big or little can, whichever you prefer)
~half bag miniature colored marshmallows

Prepare Jello according to directions. Chill in refrigerator until almost set. Stir in cranberry sauce, drained oranges and marshmallows. Chill until ready to serve. Enjoy!!

Your mom would be so proud of you! Not just for this, but for the life you are leading, the children you are raising, the family value that you hold that she did, or anything like that. She would be proud to be your mom!!

Thank you so much. I really appreciate all my mom did for us and I hope to be like her in that way--to make time together special and loving.
