Good Morning, friends,  The big Memorial weekend is just about here .  If you are planning a family get together,  I have a couple of "crowd pleasers" for you.  These are pretty much staples at our family gatherings.  I have always tried to make it a habit to come up with a recipe for each of the grand children and name it after tnem.... I hope you will give these a try.  They are great for young and "old" alike ( but whos old, right? ) 
                                               Jessicas Glorified Rice Dessert
Dissolve 1 small package lemon jello in 1 cup boiling water
Stir in 1 cup pineapple juice,drained from a large can of crushed pineapple (reserve fruit)
Whip and set aside : 1 cup whipping cream
                                      1 tsp. vanilla
                                      1 T. sugar
When jello is jelly-like consistency, beat with a beater until fluffy
Then stir in : crushed pineapple
                         2 cups cooked and cooled rice
                        1/2 cup chopped pecans
                        1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries
                       and the whipped cream
Refrigerate until serving.

                                    Marge`s Strawberry Fluff
In a LARGE bowl, combine:  2 egg whites
                                                     1 cup sugar
                                                     pinch of salt
                                                     1 cup frozen strawberries, thawed
Beat with the electric mixer for 20 minutes It will really increase in volumn)
Whip 1 cup whipping cream and fold into strawberry mixture
Line a 9 by 13  glass pan with vanilla wafer crumbs. Pour on mixture and sprinkle with more crumbs and chopped nuts.  this will serve 18 people nicely and also freezes really well.

Have a super holiday with your family and friends.  Lets remember what this holiday is all about, and express our thankfulness and and memories of the loved ones that are no longer with us.  I love you all,  Smile Always, Bev
