    I do not like Miracle Whip myself. For some reason it's too sweet for me.
    OTOH, lots of people use it. My mother uses it in potato salad but the
    sweetness is cut from the mustard she adds. To each his/her own.

    Through the magic of Google:

    Strawberry Spring Salad
    Yield: 4 Servings

    3 tablespoons White wine vinegar
    3 tablespoons Water
    1 tablespoon Honey
    2 tablespoons Extra-virgin olive oil
    1/8 teaspoon Salt
    1/8 teaspoon Pepper
    3 cups Strawberries, quartered
    10 oz Italian Blend salad greens
    4 teaspoon Pine nuts, roasted

    Combine first 6 ingredients and stir well with a whisk. Combine strawberries
    and greens. Add the vinegar mix; toss to coat. Sprinkle with nuts.


    >> Anadama Bread

    >
    > Which is......?


    Um...kind of a dense bread made by adding cornmeal and molasses to a white
    bread dough. It's one of those old New England Yankee recipes. I like it
    with ham.

    I got the rhubarb from a local farmer's market. It BETTER be good, since I
    lose about two-and-a-half hours of sleep when I go there!

    Hm. Pretty similar idea. Sub spinach for baby greens, pecans for pine
    nuts.

    Dressing is more 50s American - vegetable oil (I use canola), apple
    cider vinegar, a hefty dose of sugar, a little paprika, micned onion
    and worcestershire, plus poppy seeds, emulsified in the blender. gonna
    try this one - lighter, more my style, I'd guess.

    Wow, I've never heard of it. Hafta keep an eye out for it. Although,
    I'm not a huge eater of white breads.

    Ouch! Our ';farmers market" is actually several small shops/stalls run
    by various small local farms, but no rhubarb that i've seen. it's open
    all day, no lost sleep there! and my local farm stand doesn't open til
    april.

    I think my mom prefers mayo. It's been so long since I left home I don't
    remember what she used then but I think now it's mayo. I don't really use a
    whole lot of Miracle Whip on anything but hubby eats it like it's going out
    of style. No more than I would use real mayo myself I just never saw the
    reason to make it and throw away half or more.

    What's wrong with Miracle Whip? I use real mayonnaise in egg salad and
    devilled eggs because it works better with eggs, I don't know why.
    In potato salad I sometimes a little mayo with the MW if the potato
    salad has boiled eggs in it. Other than that, I pretty much just use
    Miracle Whip.

    I like the concept of real mayo better, but there's something about the
    taste that almost makes me gag and I don't know why. Maybe it's just
    too rich and oily.

    I'm more or less in the group who celebrates Easter as an excuse to
    have a nice dinner...and those chocolate bunnies and all...grew up in
    an Italian Catholic family, and some things just stay a tradition.
    This year Easter falls on my DH's birthday, so I'll have to make an
    extra fancy dessert.

    > delivery and watch MST3K to try to get my mind off everything.


    That got my attention!! I haven't seen MST3K for YEARS! I think I'll
    go look up the TV listings now....
    Easter menu will be roasted cornish game hens stuffed with wild rice,
    dried cherries and pecans, steamed asparagus with a bit of butter and
    lemon, and green leaf salad with whatever looks good at the market and
    a citrus dressing. Oh, and maybe a grand coconut layer cake for
    dessert.

    Hope your DH feels better soon.

    Our year-round farmer's market is Saturday mornings from 8:30 AM to noon. My
    work schedule has me sleeping from 6 AM until 2 PM on Saturdays, and the
    drive to the market takes about an hour.

  18. Possibly because ham, otherwise know as pork, is not Kosher, therefore
    a step of separation from the Passover, which is definitely a Jewish
    holy day. Easter, the fulfillment of the prophecies, was not accepted
    by the Jewish peoples so it becomes a sort of 'nyah, nyah,nyah' in that
    if you won't recognize our holy day we'll just serve food you can't eat
    to spite you......nothing like good ol' Christian charity is there.
