Today Amy's Sew and Tell Friday has included cook and tell for thanksgiving!
This thanksgiving we went to the Hill Country for the week and decided that everyone would make a dish for the meal and my youngest decided to make pretzel jello salad. As far as I can tell, if you are from the south you know of this dish, but otherwise you are scratching your head as was I the first time I heard of this. It was even discussed on The View this week as a dish that Elizabeth was making and Barbara asked if the pretzels got soggy. The answer is no, they don't, but the secret is in sealing the cream cheese layer so the jello does not reach the pretzels. I didn't take a picture of the dish, but wanted to give her credit, so here she is making Blueberry muffins this summer!
Speaking of blueberries, well of the color purple... today I received a Purple Tree Quilt letter in the mail. This is the classic pyramid chain letter, but with 6 inch squares! I got 2 squares and need to send two squares to the name of the letter and invite 4 more people to participate sending them both the letter and 2 squares.... if all works out in a couple weeks I have 32 different purple squares sent to me!
Want to play? If you want to be one of the 4 people that I send 2 squares to (you then have to send a total of 10 squares yourself) let me know either in a comment or email me your address!
These are the square I got! Aren't they pretty!
Oh that's a yummy salad! I've eaten it before, but never made it. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
sounds really interestingReplyDelete
How sweet that your daughter likes to cook. :) I have heard of that dish and I am from the midwest.ReplyDelete
I don't think I've ever had pretzel jello salad?! good for her!ReplyDelete
I love purple and in fabric it is hard to find.ReplyDelete
Iowa knows the pretzel jello salad well! And particularly at thanksgiving--she is part of a great tradition! Can't wait to hear how the squares chain letter goes.ReplyDelete
Yes, I know about that pretzel salad and it is very good. It is great that your daughter likes to cook.ReplyDelete
I have done the purple thing several times and I am going to pass but have fun with it.
It is so nice to see children enjoying spending time in the kitchen.ReplyDelete
I haven't heard of the pretzel salad, but I usually like anything with pretzels. I hope no one breaks the chain so you get your 32 squares. Good Luck!!ReplyDelete
LOVE that pretzel salad! I could almost eat the whole dish myself!ReplyDelete
