Green Bliss

In honour of the fact that emerald green is the colour of 2013 according to those in the know, I am presenting you with a recipe I call “Green Stuff”. It probably has a proper name, but I rather like its non-descriptive descriptive name.

This was given to me by a friend who says that her significant other, Dave can make it, so I can make it. And Dave goes along with this—though come to find out—Dave is a bit of a cook himself, having taught cooking at school. So he is way ahead of me when it comes to cooking, but that is alright. It encourages me to try new recipes so I am the better for it.

So, in case you were looking for something green for your St. Patrick’s Day feast (I know I am a bit ahead of time here, but this will give you time to plan), here is my recipe for

Green Stuff

19 oz. can of crushed pineapple with juice

1 small pkg. pistachio pudding (99 grams)

1 pkg. of coconut (200 grams)

Large thing of Cool Whip (as opposed to a small thing of Cool Whip)

About ½ pkg. of little marshmallows

Pour pineapple into big bowl. Sprinkle pudding on top and let soak in for a minute. Stir in and mix. Add coconut. Stir. Add slightly softened cool whip. Stir. Add marshmallows. Stir. Make sure it is all green when you are done mixing. Voila, green stuff!

I tend to leave out the coconut, but my family loves it either way.

Do you have a blissful recipe with a weird name?
