Awfully Thankful

When your host brings out the turkey and it’s festooned with little sausage links, you’ll be glad you brought along an equally awful side dish to complement the Thanksgiving meal.

Awful Bean & Mushroom Salad

Sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water in saucepan. Stir in some dehydrated onion flakes. Stir over low heat until gelatin dissolves. Stir in remaining water, vinegar, sweetener, and salt. Chill until syrupy. Fold in beans, pimento, and mushrooms. Turn into a 5 -cup mold. Chill until firm. Unmold. Garnish with watercress. Awfully good stuff!

Bon appétit! Or, non appétit?

How To Perform A J-Turn

A J-turn is a driving maneuver in which a vehicle in reverse is spun 180 degrees and continues, facing forward, without changing direction of travel. The J-turn is also called a “moonshiner’s turn,” a “reverse 180”, a “Rockford Turn”, a “Rockford Spin”, or simply a “Rockford” popularized by the 1970s TV show The Rockford Files.
