Subject: Re: Ambrosia?
I had forgotten (blocked out) that confection. We did call it ambrosia.
Speaking of another delightful mixture...Does anybody else besides my neighbors
in Chicago call a mixture of sherbet (lime or orange) and ginger ale *frappe.*
A private joke among a couple of Catholics I have known (who think of
weddings in terms of the open bar at the reception at an Italian wedding)
refers to this concoction as the "Baptist wedding punch." This stuff is
very frequently served at receptions of all kinds in Central Georgia and is
called "punch" by the people who make it and drink it (with a plate of
cheese straws, divinity, and weird little sandwiches).
