For your mouth-watering enjoyment, furriends---ta-da:
A new recipe from the parish kitchen!
I'm tickled to my whisker tips! The housekeeper has come up with a treat which is a real tribute to one of my passions--fish.
The only thing is, it doesn't taste like fish. It isn't grilled, sauteed, or fried. It just looks like fish or little fishies, actually, swimming around in their little pond.
It was so nice of her to make this for me, but not for a moment did I think they were really fish, or rather goldfish, especially since I was spying on her as she made it.
If you would like to create your own pond, here is the recipe:
3 oz. box of lime Jello or any color you want the fish to swim in
a handful of baby carrots (the organic ones are more tapered)
celery stalk greens (optional)
In a small glass rectangular or round dish, mix the Jello according to package directions. Wash carrots and lightly peel, setting the "fish" into the Jello.
Put into refrigerator and every so often check on them, moving the carrots around to where they look most feline-yummy looking life like. Eventually they will set.
When they were first put in, it was funny because the carrots started acting like real fish in that they wanted to hang out along the edge of the dish or gang together on one end. Even when they were left alone, they "swam" when nobody was looking.
