no.23 leftovers

forget the pie, forget the turkey with rolls, forget the stuffing, the only leftover i need is the frozen fruit salad. for some reason, this has been my favorite thing about the holiday since i was little. when i was serving a mission, the family we spent thanksgiving with emailed my family to get the recipe and i about cried when i saw them pull it out of the freezer on thanksgiving. it was as good as having my family there for real. on top of that, they let me take home all the leftovers. so sweet. so i will be eating this delicious treat for days while everyone else can have the other leftovers. what a good thing.

My Mom's Frozen Fruit Salad
1 pkg. cream cheese
1 can crushed pineapple
1 bag frozen strawberries or raspberries
2-3 bananas
1 tub cool whip
Combine cream cheese and pineapple, then stir in strawberries and bananas. Fold in cool whip. Spread in 9x13. Freeze overnight. Allow to soften before serving. Slice like a cake and enjoy.
