Weekend update

1 box lime Jello
1 1/2 c. boiling water
1 c. cottage cheese
1 c. crushed pineapple
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1 1/2 tsp. horseradish
Mix Jello with the 1 1/2 cups boiling water and drained pineapple juice. Cool and let start to congeal, fold in cottage cheese, mayonnaise and pineapple mix together. Put in salad mold and chill.

Okay, that right there is the classic green Jell-o recipe which I have NEVER made until today even though I'm a Utah Mormon. But I sort of started craving it--probably because when Bea Williams and I had lunch at her retirement center, they served this and it was GOOD and I've wanted some ever since. Besides, how can you resist a recipe that has the word "congeal" in it?

And as long as we're on the subject of Guilty Pleasures, I also watched the original "Cutting Edge" today and really. How can you not like a movie that ends with a kiss and a gold medal? GO, AMERICA!

Anyway. I did write 1000 words yesterday even though it was Saturday. And I've written 800 words so far today, even though I've been eating Jell-o and watching movies about ice skaters with non-ironic big hair.

You're no longer a Utah Mormon?
You're finally going to be my next door neighbor? Idaho Mormons aren't so bad.

OMG, The Cutting Edge is awesome. "Toe pick!" (that is the right movie, right?) soooooooo good. I believe there was a period in my life when I watched that movie with varying configurations of children about 1000 times. And it was good every single time.

Hey, you went and changed your text, now my comment doesn't make any sense.

Toe Pick!

Wow, Ann, great minds think alike. I just watched Cutting Edge today too. My favorite line is "You want me to put my hands where."

1. Congrats on the big numbers you're putting up--very inspiring!

2. That jell-o salad is my favorite (although I've never had it with horseradish!).

3. Toe pick!

Hmm. I'm not sure I've ever had the green jello with cottage cheese salad either. Something is seriously wrong with the Relief Society if I haven't learned this.

And not only did I watch the original Cutting Edge yesterday, I ended up watching all or parts of its sequels. I started to wonder if a sequel is created for every winter Olympics.
