Last week at Tuesday's Night with The Cake Lady, #2 sis declared that on Tuesday March 18th we must all bring green food for a Day After St Patrick's Day Themed night.
She was immediately reminded by all present that #1 Sis has plenty of potential green food due to most of her house becoming a three story water fountain last month. Then she was reminded that she was the Aunt who spent one summer feeding a nephew moldy food on multiple occasions.
Since I just cleared my fridge of all strange life forms, my food should be safe from the non-acceptable greens.
So far, there have been no further food guidelines stipulated. Perhaps someone will start a group Email to insure we do not end up with 5 desserts and 7 Watergate Salads for our meal.
I will not make a Watergate Salad due to mental trauma incurred at my previous job.
The making of Watergate Salad by co-workers was fraught with hysteria and inedible food. My Boss vowed never to place it on the menu ever again after our 2 in the morning conversation when I thought there was left-over clam chowder in a plastic wrapped bowl in the fridge and wondered why the Watergate Salad I had made the night before was untouched. She explained "It is not clam chowder, it was some other employees attempt at Watergate Salad." Then in tones of despair she said "I was there…at supper…I can't believe I let them serve that…to my residents…"
That was our last attempt in the 2 year Watergate war. Every 2 weeks a fellow coworker would stare in blank mindedness at the menu. Then come to me in panic and say "How do I make Watergate salad!!!!"
We had at least 7 recipes in various cookbooks for Watergate salad. They never could find 1.
Countless times I carefully explained. Mix a package of dry pistachio pudding powder into the crushed pineapple with it's juice. They would add 2 cups of milk and then wonder why it was so very runny.
Some would make a confused concoction of Watergate and Waldorf Salads.
I am thinking I might just try making Ruebenish wraps. Using Spinach Wraps.
Although I did find a Pickle dip recipe on the web.
