Instead of shopping today, I am enjoying time with my family, hopefully working off a little of yesterday's caloric indulgences, and doing a little blogging. I am linking up with the Lifestyle Sistas today; they are hosting a linkup where bloggers can share recipes with five ingredients or less. Conveniently, my daughter often requests one such recipe to be included on our Thanksgiving menu, so it is the one I have decided to share.
Whatever you call it, it is sticky and sweet - and sort of an American tradition. Here is the recipe for it that my grandmother shared with me.
Watergate Nixon Salad
1 (3.4 oz) box of instant pistachio pudding
1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 (8 oz.) container Cool Whip, thawed (regular or fat-free)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1. Mix pudding powder and crushed pineapple (do not drain) together until well blended.
2. Add marshmallows and (optional) nuts.
3. Fold in cool whip.
4 Chill at least several hours or overnight.
Serve with an open mind and full transparency, and be prepared for some political discussion!
