Every year my side of the family has a Christmas party where we all bring a dish. This year it was my job to bring what my family calls “Pink Stuff”. My family goes crazy for this stuff, though I have no idea why. If it is your “thing”, please enjoy my family’s favorite ‘Family Party’ dish. Whenever my family has a party, BBQ, graduation, ANYTHING… someone is required to bring the giant bowl of “Pink Stuff”. None was ever left over by the time everyone was finished dividing the remains of the giant bowl (hence the need for such a large bowl for only 30 people).
1 large tub Cottage Cheese
1 box Strawberry Jello
1 small tub Whipped Cream
1 Can Fruit (I used crushed pineapple, fruit cocktail can be used, oranges, or whatever floats your boat) DO NOT DRAIN
1. In a large bowl, add all the ingredients listed above.
2. Stir all the ingredients until they are well blended.
3. Chill for at least an hour and serve in bowls.
4. Add a dollop of whipped cream to the top to garnish (optional).
This can be stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to one week. It never lasted that long in my house, but just in case…
