Cranberry Pomegranite Salad

I got this recipe from--of all people--my brother John. Last year he told me he could eat the whole bowl full. Unfortunately for me, he told me this AFTER the last shipment of cranberries. So I've been waiting a whole year to make it. It was worth the wait. I'm passing it on to all of you!

1 12 oz. bag cranberries
3/4 cup sugar
Blend together in blender until chopped. (I tried this a couple of ways and the best is to blend the cranberries with water to chop them--then drain over a strainer.) Add sugar and refrigerate 2 hours.

1 pt whipping cream--whipped firmly
2 1/2 cups minature marshmallows.

Mix together and chill 2 hours.

After chilled, mix together and add the pomegranite seeds from one pomegranite, 1 peeled and grated apple. Mix together and serve.

It's yummy--and looks pretty as well. We're going to do this for Thanksgiving--I'm sure!

Something New!

I did something tonight for the very first time. I watched a MOVIE IN MY CAR! Now for the rest of the United States, that's nothing new. But for me it was a thrilling experience. What I wouldn't have given to have a couple of those little movie screens in my car when we were on our way to Indiana in a station wagon filled with SIX restless kids. Funny thing is . . . Santa Claus brought the DVD player to us for Christmas nearly a year ago. And this is the first time we've I've used it. We had to stop and buy headphones for it because the volume just wasn't loud enough for my old ears. But it sure was fun--even if I AM feeling a little nauseous. Yep--I watched the WHOLE THING! I can still remember when TV first went to c.o.l.o.r. Must be a fossil!
