* Heavenly Rice

When people talk about their "immediate family" typically they are talking about their mom, dad, and siblings.  For me, that is not the case.  My immediate family is my mom, grandma, grandpa, aunts and uncle and cousins... Growing up I spent a lot of time with all of them.  Holiday's big and small, sporting events (track and field), and cookouts on lazy weekends.  My cousins and I spent a lot of time at our grandma's, running around her yard and in the forest by her house.  Many of my favorite dishes came from gram's house... Pig Picken Cake, Chicken and Waffles... Heavenly rice!!

Gram's Heavenly Rice

4 cups cooked rice
1 20 oz can of crushed pineapple
3 small gala apples (diced)
1 bag of chopped walnuts
1 jar of maraschino cherries (quartered)
3/4 bag of mini marshmallows
2 cups of Chantilly cream (gram would used a container of cool whip)

Mix all ingredients in a big bowl, allow to chill before serving. Yep, that's it!
Now.. It may not look like much, but it is a tasty treat that my grandma use to make that I would devour!!
