The Monday Recipe Blog

Hello....The beginning of another workweek - I need a vacation!!  Maybe a recipe will do the trick...

This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.

Today's recipe is for Chilled Rice Velvet dessert - I haven't personally tried this, but plan to in the near future - it sounds wonderful!  Again, this recipe is from the 1950's/1960's, when gelatin molds were uber-popular.  If you don't want to go retro and use a mold, you don't have to.

Lois Elaine's Chilled Rice Velvet:

1/4 of a banana
4 T. rice, uncooked
1/4 c. sugar
3 1/2 T. cherry gelatin
1 c. boiling water
1/2 c. boiling water
1 c. water
Cook rice in a cup of boiling water, salted, for about 25 minutes.  Blend banana, sugar, the 1 c. water and cooked rice for 3 minutes.  Dissolve gelatin in the 1/2 c. boiling water.  Add the dissolved gelatin to the banana mixture and chill.  Whip until light and fluffy, then pile into molds and chill.  Top with whipped cream.
