Sensational Slush
Colorful and refreshing, this sweet-tart slush has become a family favorite. I freeze the mix in 2 and 4 cup containers so it can be served in small portions for individuals or the whole family. I also freeze crushed strawberries to make the preparation simpler.

1/2 cup sugar 3 ounces of strawberry gelatin 2 cups of boiling water 2 cups of sliced fresh strawberries 1 cup of unsweetened pineapple juice 1 can of frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed 1 can of frozen limeade concentrate, thawed 2 cups of cold water 2 liters of lemon-lime soda

In a large bowl, dissolve sugar and gelatin in boiling water. Place the strawberries and pineapple juice in a blender or food processor; cove and process until smooth. Add to the gelatin mixture. Stir in concentrates and cold water. Cover and freeze for 8 hours or overnight.
Remove from the freezer 45 minutes before serving. For each serving, combine 1/2 cup slush mixture with 1/2 cup lemon-lime soda.

MW: Chutney Dip

When you are looking for a dip with a difference, try this tangy blend. Made with yogurt and a healthy dash of curry, this dip goes great with all kinds of veggies.

1 cup of plain yogurt 3 tablespoons of chutney 2 tablespoons of chopped green onions 1 teaspoon of curry powder 1 medium green pepper assorted fresh vegetables
In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, chutney, onions, and curry powder. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. cut top off of green pepper; remove seeds and membrane. Fill with dip. Serve with vegetables.
