Until last week, I hadn’t made Mother’s fruit salad in years.
But in planning a meal for our family’s newborn mother, when needing something sweet to complement a Ham-Broccoli quiche I was serving, I remembered Mother’s simple salad.
Very much like that Southern table staple Ambrosia — minus the cherries and coconut — the salad makes up quick from ingredients I normally have on hand. And it’s a perfect complement to ham. In fact, the combination tasted so good last week I decided to make it again today.
Perhaps adding the recipe here may help keep this childhood favorite at the top of my aging memory bank — where it properly belongs.
Mother’s Fruit Salad
Serves 21/2 of an orange — peeled, sectioned and sliced with membranes removed. 1/2 cup of crushed pineapple 1 banana sliced 1 to 2 tsp. sugar
Mix and serve immediately
WOW! Look at you! Looks like that nice fresh citrus spilled over into your template! 😉
I just saw three hits from your “about” page and thought, “Ha! Janelle’s messing with her blog”. Sure enough!
Yum is right. And if that wasn’t enough, one taste and I’m a child all over again.
Sure am glad you’re feeling better.
How on earth did you know?
Sometimes I just need a change of scenery — which probably explains why I paint my walls and move around the furniture in my house as often as I do. Taking both actions inspires me to deep clean my house as well — and I love a clean home. I guess trying out a new blog theme called “Clean Home” was simply more than I could resist!
this looks so good – and simple
would be good for one person
which is me.
You make me smile with your words, Ernestine. And I imagine Mother’s salad has you smiling soon too.
Isn’t it lovely how the internet allows us to so easily share lives with one another?
