What is chai tea? Technically it’s just “chai” and is a popular tea around the world. For a fascinating read about this beverage, read this article.

This aunt is my dad’s sister, and several of my siblings have commented “Noel is just like Aunt Grace”.  I take that as a compliment!

Grandma’s Pink Fluff

We called it pink stuff. Maybe that’s because we were little kids and pink was the color of the dessert. Maybe it’s because we misunderstood the adults said “fluff” and we heard “stuff”. At any rate, this is the family tradition we call Pink Stuff. Grandma’s Pink Stuff Recipe Ingredients: 3 oz Strawberry Jell-o powder 8 oz Whipped Topping 24 oz Cottage Cheese 15 oz Fruit Cocktail Recipe Directions: Drain the fruit cocktail. Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Refrigerate 2 hours. You can mix and serve in the same bowl.
