Next week we will have been in our new house for 2 months! We pretty much have all of our stuff put away, we just don't have all the little 'homey' touches done yet that make me feel completely settled in. My mom came over this week and we hung up pictures in the kitchen. Now that the walls are not completely bare I thought I'd share a few pictures. I enjoy seeing the kitchens of the blogs I follow so I hope you do too :)
The recipe for today is one of the ones I have framed on my kitchen wall. I went through my grandma's recipe box and picked out recipes to frame. One was written by my great-grandma, her favorite recipe, Lemon Pie. Others were done by my Grandma and most of them I plan to make. All except for this Frosted Lime Walnut Salad. I don't like lime jello at all and the other stuff added in just made it worse. It sounded so gross to me that I thought it deserved a spot on the wall. It reminds me of growing up and watching that segment on Sesame Street where the game show host says to a contestant, "Would you eat it?!?" and the little girl would respond "Ooh, no it's gross!" but the other contestant always said "I will Bob!" I am with the little girl on this one!
Frosted Lime Walnut Salad Source: My grandma
1 pkg lime jello
1 can crushed pineapple
1 C small curd cottage cheese
1/2 C finely sliced celery
1 tbsp chopped pimiento
1/2 C chopped walnuts
3 oz. cream cheese
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp lemon juice
1. Dissolve jello in boiling water and cool until syrupy.
2. Stir in remaining ingredients except walnuts and pour into a jello mold.
4. Make the frosting: combine all frosting ingredients and beat until smooth.
5. Once the jello has set, frost the top and decorate with walnuts
Would you eat it? Maybe if I liked lime jello or cottage cheese in jello or celery I would...
Here are a few pictures of my kitchen! I love the beamed ceiling and original hardwood floors. On the counter I have old cookbooks from my other grandma and a few other antique kitchen utensils.
