Thread: On the worst jello salad ever
#1 On the worst jello salad ever11-24-2010, 01:10 PM
“We agreed it [the article] must have been fairly widely read in both our congregations, because on one page there’s a recipe for that molded salad of orange gelatin with stuffed green olives and shredded cabbage and anchovies that has dogged my ministerial life these last years, and which appears at his house whenever he so much as catches cold. There should be a law to prevent recipes for molded salad from appearing within twenty pages of any article having to do with religion.” (Marilynne Robinson, Gilead p.145)
Perhaps the only ingredient that could make this particular jello salad worse would be tofu, which makes most anything with which it comes into contact a little worse. The pastor quoted above is about 77 years old and has been plagued by Lutheran jello salad his whole life. Nothing like seeing a jello salad coming your way with shredded carrots and fruit cocktail suspended in the mixture. And little miniature slices of peeled mandarin oranges. Or little shrimp. Does Dante describe a ring in hell for those who prepared this awesomely frightening dish? ...
Is there a dish you will be avoiding tomorrow? :eek:

What's wrong with mayo, Rock?"Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers
