Right before I got married, my extended family threw me a “Stuff The Pantry” bridal shower.
Everyone was supposed to bring their favorite recipe and then the ingredients needed to make that recipe so that I could stock my pantry with lots of ideas to feed my husband. 🙂 All the older women in the family kept telling me that the way to my husband’s heart was through food . . . and that seriously terrified me because I lived on cereal, sandwiches, and crackers! My husband was going to run away when he found out that I didn’t even know how to brown hamburger. My cute grandma wrote me a little note about how it takes a lot of practice to learn your way around the kitchen but this recipe is a great place to start; she then included the following recipe for this simple ambrosia salad. I still have the recipe card with her teeny-tiny perfect handwriting and it will forever be a treasure to me. And she is exactly right- it doesn’t get much simpler than this little recipe. 🙂
