  • 1 (3.4-ounce) package pistachio instant pudding

Kraft Foods debuted its bright green instant pistachio pudding mix in the 1970s and promoted a recipe using the pudding mix called Pistachio Pineapple Delight. It's believed that a crafty editor at a Chicago newspaper reprinted the recipe but renamed it "Watergate Salad," and the new name stuck.

No Fear in Love

Sunday's Bible verse : 

Meaning: When we experience God's love in our lives and share it with others, we do not need to fear. The future punishment that awaits those who do not believe does .  The two-way relationship of God's love in our lives gives us confidence and security. The ability to live out His love is a sign of our faith in Him, and the way for us to follow His will in order to gain eternal rewards.

There's no two ways about it: oysters are a permanent fixture on any Valentine's Day menu, at least in any food writer's inbox in the form of a press release. Oysters are traditionally known as an aphrodisiac.

  • # T flour
  • 1/2 c Parmesan cheese

     Valentines and Oysters  !  Did You know  these facts : 

It's zinc, which oysters are loaded with. The mineral helps the body produce testosterone, a hormone critical in regulating women's and men's libido and sexual function. Research suggests that zinc can improve sperm count and swimming ability, and increase sexual potency in men
