German Potato Salad (Marnie)

I *think* Marnie is Jessie Marion, my mother can verify this when she gets a minute. It was confusing to me as a child because my mother would refer to Aunt Mernie (Gram’s sister) and Aunt Marnie (Gram’s aunt). I still call my aunts Aunt Ruth and Aunt Ginny, and I could see where my … Continue reading

Orange & Pineapple Salad (Aunt Tot)

I don’t know who Aunt Tot could be. Gram’s aunts were Sue, Jessie Marion, Edna, Anna, Helen, and Maggie. Any one of those could have had the cute nickname of Tot.

I believe she would freeze the smaller containers and bring them out for various occasions.  While I don’t have any distinct memories of liking or disliking … Continue reading

So this overnight salad seems to me like something for a potluck. Double cream isn’t something as readily available to us these … Continue reading

Vegetable Supper Salad

Just a quick post today with a recipe from Mernie for a Vegetable Supper Salad. It sounds okay to me without the Jello. I’d like to take all the ingredients and just mix them up in a bowl.  :-)
