When I was about 11 or 12, my grandmother took me to Miss Daisy’s Tea Room in Jackson, TN. I was less than pleased with the absence of burgers and fries on the menu, so my grandmother was thrilled when I finally found something on the menu that I enjoyed. I enjoyed it so much that my grandmother asked the waitress, who then asked the restaurant owner, if I could have the recipe. It was so simple that it became a family tradition for me to prepare this dish every Christmas. Regretfully, Sarah doesn’t like it but I have my fingers crossed that Amy will take over the family tradition.

1 can crushed pineapple (drained)
1 large container of Cool Whip
1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
Mix and freeze. Thaw to serve.
The restaurant served it like a scoop of ice cream on a piece of lettuce, but we just skip the formalities.
