Sorry about the lack of recipes for the past few months! We found out we are having baby #2, which we are so excited about! But as a result of this new babe, I have lost my desire to cook, poor Lucas. :) Good things these babes are worth it!
I did manage to make this frog eye salad for our family Halloween party this year though, and I had a few requests for the recipe. It is so easy and yummy! It always reminds me of my Aunt Vicky- this was her signature dish she would bring to all our family get-togethers when I was growing up.

Frog Eye Salad
1 C Sugar
2 Tbsp Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
3 Egg Yolks, beaten
1 3/4 C Acini Pepe (Italian pasta in macaroni section of store)
2- 11 oz. Cans Mandarin Oranges
1- 13 oz Can Crushed Pineapple
1/2 - 1 C Mini Marshmallows
2 Bananas, sliced
1- 16 oz Cool Whip
Add Acini to 2 qt. boiling water and boil for 8-10 minutes until tender. Strain and let cool. Drain pineapple and reserve the juice. Add water to the pineapple juice to make 1 3/4 C liquid. Combine pineapple juice, sugar, flour, salt, and egg yolks and boil on medium heat until thick. Add acini to this mixture and let set in the refrigerator at least 3 hours, if not overnight. When completely cool, add oranges, pineapple, banana, marshmallows and cool whip. Fold together and serve. Enjoy!!
