Statue of Liberty Fireworks By PAULIELEXX

We are celebrating today with our friends. This afternoon their will be a cook out and fireworks to watch in the evening. I made fruit salad to bring along. Iris shared this recipe with me at one of our bead meetings. It's been a family favorite ever since.

Fruit Salad recipe

2 cans pineapple chunks, drained
2 cans fruit cocktail, drained
1 jar maraschino cherries
1 can condensed sweeten milk
1-8 oz package cream cheese
1-12 oz container Cool Whip

In a bowl mix softened cream cheese and condensed milk till smooth. I add a tbsp lemon juice to cut the sweet. Add the drained fruit. Blend in the Cool Whip. Store in refridge for a couple of hours before serving.

Thanks for stopping by

Enjoy your celebrations today!
