It's warm enough to have tea and dessert out on my patio!
I'm using a trio set painted by my late Great Aunt Kitty. Isn't it a pretty pattern?
This darling lady vase was gifted to me from my dear daughter for my birthday. Don't you love her rosy cheeks and freckles? She also gave me the green bird feeder on my table, which I've since hung in a tree.
My mom embroidered this pretty tablecloth, and it's probably over sixty years old. I think it matches my trio set set so perfectly.
I don't know why Watergate Salad is a "salad", because it really is more like a dessert. A co-worker gave me this recipe long ago, and I recently took it to a potluck. A bit of information was found at seriouseats.com on how the recipe was named. It seems that Kraft Foods deputed the pistachio pudding mix in the 1970's and promoted a recipe called Pistachio Pineapple Delight. However, a food editor at a Chicago newspaper reprinted the recipe, but renamed it "Watergate Salad," and the name stuck! Here's the recipe, if you'd like to give it a try:
1-3 oz. pkg pistachio instant pudding mix
1-20 oz. can crushed pineapple, not drained
1- 8 oz. container of frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Mix pudding mix into pineapple by stirring. Fold in whipped topping, and add marshmallows and nuts. Chill.
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
