The color scheme clearly called for green olives, with which I'm sure it would have been ... delightful.

No, that's not something she actually served at home, is it? That's something she concocted for one of the fraternities at SEMO State for Hell Week, right?

My mother is of the same generation as Rush Limbaugh's mother, and every so often she would prepare some godawful concoction involving lime Jello, cottage cheese, shredded carrots, and green olives.

I don't know if it was something she learned from her mother, or if it was inspired by a recipe seen on a Jell-O box. But even as a little kid, I had sense enough to not put it in my mouth. Green olives? Blergh......

It is the after birth of a really bad culinary idea.

Thank goodness Julia Child came along to fix it.
