Lynne Murphy" <104LYN[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]MUSE.ARTS.WITS.AC.ZA> Subject: ambrosia well, despite so many people not recognizing the word "ambrosia", that's the only thing i've ever heard that concoction called in upstate ny & illinois. that and jello salad are what my friends and i call "protestant soul food." (a friend who grew up methodist/lutheran calls it "the food of my people", so that's how the whole thing got started.) lynne --------------------------------------------------------------------- Dr. M.
