I made a traditional King (that's my maiden name) family dinner on Easter Monday, why cause:
1) I never get my family meals anymore
2) I felt like it.
One of the staples at any big occasion family dinner - is a thing we call purple cow ( I don't know why it is called this). My grandma has been making this as long as I can remember. It's like dessert - but you eat it with your meal. I have no problems with this idea - cool whip and turkey should hang out more often.
Another thing I like about this is there is just something kind of fun and retro about jello based desserts - they should use it on Mad Men in any dinner scene
1 package of raspberry jello
1 1/2 - 2 cups of blueberries (feel free to add more!)
1 10 oz can of crushed pineapples
1 container of cool whip - thawed
Mix the jello with water as called for on the package.
mix in the blueberries and crushed pineapple ( with juices from can)
stir and refrigerate. Stir every half hour or so to keep berries and pineapples from settling
at the bottom. Once it seems to be holding cover top with cool whip. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
It won't get the consistency of jello - so don't expect it to harden up completely
