Grandma's Ambrosia

 I want to share  with  you the most simple fabulous recipe. My grandmother has made it my entire lifetime and I would bet she has made it her entire lifetime too. In September she turns 88 years old. She still lives in her home and I still see her almost everyday. While you are all anxiously awaiting my shopping trips which will be completed over the next several days I wanted to share with  you the most fun recipe.

Take 2 small boxes of peach jell-o
1 C. of green seedless grapes
1 handful full of cherries
1 small can of mandarin oranges drained
1 large can of pineapple drained
1 peach sliced (leave the skin on )
3/4 pkg. of cottage cheese (your favorite kind)
1 pkg. cool whip

First take the cottage cheese and cool whip and mix it up well by hand. Add the two packages of jell-o and then add the fruit. Gently fold it all in together and cover and refrigerate overnight. Serve cool
Feel free to substitute your favorite  fruit or whatever is in season. We are a family of a pinch of this and a dash of that. Wish I could give you more detailed instructions, but what's the fun in that.

Happy Cooking,

The Cute Couponer
