136 Kinds of Weather, 24 Hours, and 1 Easter Recipe April 04 2014

It was Mark Twain who once said, “In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. But, amidst the unpredictable cold-hot-humid-dry-snowy-rainy weather we’ve been having lately, there’s one thing constant: the traditions that go along with a quickly approaching Easter holiday.

Weather: we see your unpredictability, and raise you the predictable colors of Easter with Boo’s “Pink Salad,” a classic Ritchie Hill treat.

With that, here’s to Easter traditions, and a new recipe for you to bring home over the holiday:

“Boo’s Pink Salad”


(1) 8 oz. package of cream cheese

4 tbs. of mayonnaise

1 can of pineapple tidbits (technical term) with syrup (reserve 2 tbs. of syrup)

2 tbs. pineapple syrup

2 small bananas, diced

1 pint of frozen strawberries, thawed and drained

2 cups of Cool Whip


Soften cream cheese and blend with mayonnaise. Beat in pineapple syrup. Mix in bananas, pineapple, and strawberries. Fold-in Cool Whip. Freeze until firm. To make individual servings, freeze in foil cup cake holders or in a muffin tin.
