    What was the name of that dish where you mixed canned fruit cocktail (heavy syrup) with mini marshmallows and a tub of cool whip? I know my friend's mom used to make this for "special" occasions.

      I think you are thinking of "ambrosia". Actually, the original (pre-cool whip) ambrosia of my childhood had real whipped cream in it, so it wasn't half bad.

        That sounds good! Use fresh fruit and the only problematic ingredient is the marshmallows.

          Ambrosia is simply fresh orange sections with the juice and shredded (sweetened) coconut. Chill. Delicious!

              Ew, that stuff freaks me out just by the colors. It looks like radioactive urine.

                  I just don't even want to know. My 7 year old niece and I are battling her sugar habit. To be fair I have a potato chip addiction and I told her I would quit those if she would quit sugar. I told my sister the same thing. We will see.

                    I reckon loads of CW people think Gatorade is healthy because of the association with sports. Same with Lucozade. They both look kind of nuclear.

                      I still remember the first time I saw Vitamine Water. I was like, "That sounds like it might be... um, why is it bright red?" *picks up and reads ingredients* "Clearly not." Really, the first time I heard the name I thought it would actually be sparkling water infused with vitamines... *sighs*

                        Oh, I thought of another recipe my mom used to make.

                        You take a loaf of unsliced white bread. Cut off all the crust, leaving a white rectangular block.
                        Then cut into three section parallel to the table - like you would cut something to make a layer cake.

                        Now your imagination can go wild, but generally the bottom layer would have chopped ham from a can, the middle layer would have egg salad, and the top would be cream cheese (softened with a little milk) and olives. Use remaining cream cheese/milk to "frost" the sides. Quite the presentation, and your guests will think you've spent hours preparing it! LOL, I hated that stuff.

                          You can pry marshmallows out of my cold, dead hands. But the only time I eat them now is when im camping or making my grandmother's holiday fudge recipe (double the butter, half the sugar ;D)

                          I was trying to think of bizarre CW recipes that I used to eat and I think Im actually somewhat fortunate in that I didnt really cook before going paleo so I never had any interest in any of those damn fool recipes. I certainly ate a lot of frozen Trader Joes packaged meals, which are filled with sugar and soy and blaaargh.

                          One thing I remembered, though, comes from my freshman year of college. a friend of mine on the hall was vegan, and she was pretty much the first exposure I had to veganism. Luckily she wasnt vegangelical about it--she was clear that her opinion was eat whatever you want and dont be a dick about it--but whenever she talked about what she was eating, it was saturated with the feelings that come from the "health halo" surrounding vegan diets. So, subconsciously, that association started to leak into my brain.

                          This one time, we were all in the hall eating some snacks, and she turned us on to Trader Joe's "cats cookies" (basically small sugar cookies shaped like cats) and premade, tubbed frosting (kinda like those "Dunkaroos" snacks, anyone remember those?). We sat around dipping the cookies in the frosting and raving about how it was surprisingly vegan. No one explicitly said outloud that it was healthy, but the subconscious feeling was definitely there.

                          Luckily this friend is not vegan anymore. Shes not paleo, but im working on it.

                          Edit: LOL, i just remembered, this OTHER friend of mine went vegan later in college and became addicted to Trader Joe's chocolate covered raspberry sticks (which is unsurprising, because, well, they are super delicious). She would go through a tub of them within a week. Another friend of mine suggested maybe she should ease up on them. Her response? "But theyre VEGAN!!"

                            I have to keep the marshmallows hidden in my bedroom closet so my boyfriend doesn't eat them all in a sitting. Scary.

                              Now if you just made that with a loaf of Richard's Free The Animal Fat Bread and used some real (not canned) meat, it might be pretty awesome.

                                I guess this isn't really that bizarre, but when I was a kid if I wanted something for breakfast other than cereal or a bagel i would dump some boxed pancake or cake mix into a bowl, add some water, maybe some chocolate chips or sprinkles, and microwave it till it was fluffy. Then I'd top it with either loads of syrup or canned frosting and scarf the whole thing down. I remember it being pretty good if I mixed it right, but sometimes it came out like a gummy, rubbery sponge.
