Memory Monday: Snow on the Mountain

Many years ago, a college boy named Steve brought his girlfriend home for Christmas.

His sweet, kind girlfriend asked Steve what they needed to bring to the family gathering.

Steve responded,

Chow Mein Noodles, pineapple tidbits, and olives for Snow on the Mountain.

Out of curiosity and for self preservation sake, Steve's beautiful girlfriend asked,

What is Snow on the Mountain?

Excitedly Steve explained,

Snow on the Mountain?  You've never had Snow on the Mountain? {um...nope!} It is rice with a chicken gravy on top and then topped again with Chow Mein noodles, pineapple, cheese, olives, tomatoes, mandarin oranges, celery, almond slivers and coconut {insert snow} on top.

His girlfriend silently thought his family was crazy.

When the big celebration finally arrived, his girlfriend politely piled her plate with with all of the fixings {when in Rome...} and fell in love.

His girlfriend soon became his wife.

And, his wife, from that day on looked forward to each Christmas when she could have Snow on the Mountain again.

She even loved it so much that she wanted to share it with all of her friends, and that is exactly what she did.

With her Sous Chef, Elliott, she chopped and poured, and poured and chopped all of the crazy ingredients.

While her now Mr. slaved over the chicken gravy.

¾ Cup Butter
9 Tablespoons Flour
3 Cups Milk
3 Cups Chicken Broth
2—4 oz mushroom
1-2 tsp salt
6 Cups Chicken/Turkey

Blend 3 cups chicken broth and 3 cups milk
Stir until thick add 1-2 tsp salt, 6 cups diced chicken/turkey, and 2—4oz. cans mushrooms
Heat through

After all of the preparations were made, Steve and his amazing wife happily introduced their friends to the wonder of Snow on the Mountain.  And all of their friends pretended to enjoyed it.
