  1. Oh my. I ate a lot of stuff like that when I grew up in rural Illinois. Exotic, for sure! (Perhaps even as exotic as red jello, applesauce, red hots, and 7-Up.)

  2. This made me laugh! I remember both Orange Fluff and the red jello/7up combination (my mom was from Illinois). Does anyone remember the green one- I think it had Cool Whip, Pistachio Pudding mix, pineapple and maybe walnuts?

  3. When my husband was at Purdue they would serve "jello" as desserts and he would always protest! If it isn't pie, cakes, or cookies it can't be called a dessert.

    shards from sky, cold black winter
    night settles over earth

  5. My addition to the winter thoughts of exotic foods and landscapes that I am adding to my Spiritual Journey Thursday post for tomorrow.

    soft candlelight paint
    spread on a carpet of snow-
    winter's peaceful joy
