Ah, the golden days when William Bolcom and Joan Morris toured the land with their knock-out recitals. I believe both have now retired from university teaching (Ann Arbor, Mich., was it?) and maybe they don't tour like they did when I was a university student. I attended more than one of their evenings.

This song was usually done near the end of the show. Much of its appeal is based on the shock value of hearing it the very first time. Once you have made the song's acquaintance, the experience changes completely. I learned the song well enough to use it for an audition -- passed it too.

So now, when I hear "Lime Jello Marshmallow Cottage Cheese SURPRISE!!", I sit back, anticipating every sucker-punch in the lyrics, and watch the audience -- the newbies, anyway -- jumping about like marionettes on strings.

Mr. Bolcom and Ms. Morris remarked, introducing the song one evening, that after several seasons of singing it, and having the song requested, and so on, people started cooking the stuff that was described in the song, and the statement from the stage was:
"I believe we have now eaten every dish mentioned in this song. "

This reminds me of the "Company" showstopper sung by Elaine Stritch:
"Here's to the Ladies Who Lunch...."

"...I often use all caps in my personal lyric sheets because it is easier for my bad eyes to see..."

According to scientific studies, anecdotal evident, and informed common sense, lower-case transcription (as well as standard caps-and-lowers) is MUCH more legible. Lowercase letters come in a wider variety of shapes and sizes ~ some with "ascenders" sticking up high, some with "descenders" below the baseline, etc. ~ and are thereby more easily distinguished from each other than are the capital letters, all of essentially the same size and shape.

It is not unusual for people to make the unfounded assumption that "big" letters ~ caps ~ would be easier to read than lowercase, but it is simply not true, which you can easily demonstrate to yourself if you compare the same text printed out both ways and test them for readability.

Also, if you type out your set of lyrics or whatever in caps-and-lowercase, you can probably fit the whole song on a page in a larger type size than in all-caps.

Ahem, getting back to music (this is not supposed to be a BS thread), and the Bolcom song in particular...I remember hearing Joan Morris and William Bolcom perform this song (recitative) in a taped concert for PBS and later live. Jody Karin Applebaum has also recorded it on her albums Masterpieces of Cabaret and Serious Fun! (Have to say, I prefer Morris's renditions of the Bolcom cabaret songs and Marni Nixon's renditions of the Schönberg ones.) Although the Masterpieces liner notes include lyrics for most songs, it does not include them for this one. You can download the "Lime Jello" cut from Serious Fun! at Amazon.com.

This is the version 'Er Indoors uses:

Cucumber & Grape Salad

1 large cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
1lb green grapes, washed, halved & seeded
15 fl oz water
5 oz packet lemon jelly (I use lime)
3 tablespoons orange juice
5 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon very finely chopped onion
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Marinade
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon wine vinegar
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon dry mustard

To prepare the marinade: in a medium-sized bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and mustard, beating with a fork until all the ingredients are blended.
Place the cucumber slices and grapes in the bowl and marinate them for at least 30 minutes or until you are ready to use them.
In a small saucepan, bring 5 fluid oz of water to the boil over moderate heat. Remove the pan from the heat and add the jelly. Stir until the jelly has dissolved. Stir in the remaining water. Stir in the orange and lemon juice, onion, cayenne, salt and pepper. Cool the jelly until it is almost set. With a slotted spoon, remove the grapes and cucumber slices from the marinade. Drain them thoroughly on kitchen paper towels and then add most of them to the jelly. (You can reserve the marinade and remaining grapes and cucumber to garnish the jelly when set.)
Spoon the jelly into a 2½ pint mould. Cover the mould with clingfilm or foil and put it in the refrigerator to chill for 3 to 4 hours or until the jelly is completely set.

marshmallows are a good companion to jello, as they are both made from horsie hooves...or something similar...

although there is a "health food" marshmallow made from Agar agar.

sometimes jello is made with less water, and this is used for crafts
projects or food that can be cut and formed (with cookie cutters, for instance)
http://www.cooks.com/rec/search/0,1-0,jello_jigglers,FF.html
that is for the kids, but for big kids, they prefer adding alcohol

It may be a bit OTT to add to something which I seem to have monopolised rather, but there was a programme on the TV the other week about 1920's food, in which the fashion for things in aspic was mentioned. Apparently, it was the result of the development of patent foods, powdered gelatine among them, liberating cooks from the need to boil up and clarify their own hooves. They could do it, so they did. Without any consideration for whether the results were worth eating or not.
I have no personal experience of these.
There is a shop in London which sells Jello. I have resisted it so far, though this thread waves past when I go there. (For the Australian Cherry Ripes.)

Actually, given the standard of the biscuit coating chocolate, I think I may well prefer the American. Trials are required. Which reminds me, I never completed the trials on sucking coffee through a Tim-Tam. (Aussie biscuits no longer on sale.)

Well one thing that seems to have been overlooked in the Jelly/Jello discussion is that when you buy it in England it is in a different form. The packet looks the same as a packet of Jello, but inside it isn't a powder, it is a solid block of firm jelly that you can eat straight from the packet, just like candy. Great for a snack.

We serve a couple of things at our house that seem to cause a fe w folks to check on what is being served before they accept a dinner invitation. However, we never serve them to "outsiders". My wife is from Bavaria, a small village about 40 kilometers from Munich and she has a special menu. Strange thing is I have come to enjoy them.

The first one of these she served was Liburger and boiled potatoes. It tastes surprisingly good but you have to store it inside three zip lock baggies in the house or else you will run the chance of smelling your living quarters with that special eye-watering odor that comes along with the Limburger.

The second was Sour Liver. That is strips of cows' (not calves') liver cooked in a vinegar sauce.

But she is open to other tastes. On a trip across the US, we stopped in Leadville, CO for dinner. I convinced her to try something that had what was, to her, the incomprehensible name of Chicken Fried Steak. It was love at first bite for her but Red Eye Gravy was too. She always opts for the white flour gravy.

And I will send anyone anywhere in the world who wants to try the joys of Jello a few packages in a variety of flavors. Except Joe Offer. He would only get himself in trouble.

And I, being a Southern gal by heritage and training, am a master biscuit maker. I cannot believe and am deeply, I say deeply, affronted by WHOMP biscuits. (Except, of course, if it's an acronym for What Has Our Mommas P**sed, which my momma would most definitely be if she knew anyone in MY house had to eat those biscuits from a can.)

A person who would serve WHOMP biscuits couldn't possibly know the first thing about gravy-making, which every Southern girl has to ace before she can move on to the intricacies of Jello molds. Or is it moulds?

Penny- actually that was a little joke directed at my wife, who is addicted to English sausages. Our sausages, or at least the "country" style sausage I was talking about, are basically ground pork. You make patties out of it, fry it up, and make gravy with the drippings. It is usually flavored with sage, sometimes red pepper. The gravy is usually made with milk, water, flour and spices (no Bisto, please).

Double clarifying Bron. We have two jellies. Gelatine jelly, available in fruit flavours, in which we might put fruit (when it is partly thickened to avoid it all floating or sinking); and fruit conserve strained through a muslin so as to have no bits in it. This may be different in Scotland, where there is something called a jelly piece, which I understand is what I call a jam sandwich. Though I long believed that Jello was a trade name for a variety of jelly, I am reliably informed by a family who had an American teenager with food fads (nothing to do with her being American - she would have been like it wherever she was from) on an exchange visit that our jellies, including the veggie agar versions, are nothing at all like Jello, and totally unacceptable as substitutes. (And we've got ever so many flavours!)

We do have dishes involving jelly and vegetables, but in this case the jelly is called aspic, and is even meatier than usual, being made with stock or consomme.

We usually distinguish which sort of jelly from context. In the same wayI know there is one part of the country where they use orange juice to refer both to the juice, and to the diluted drink derived from it, which we call squash. I cannot usually tell which they mean, but they can.

And what are your good sausages like? Ours, and you do have to know where to shop, have lots of thickly cut, chewy bits of meat, and an excellent variety of herb, spice or other additions such as leek, apple, etc. But the ones with no texture - ugh, you might as well eat soya or Quorn.

Even worse is the "WHOMP" sound YOU make when your wife is still in bed and you make YOUR OWN biscuits and gravy. But, you know a well made gravy can almost make up for the blandness of the whomp biscuits. Just wish I could find some decent sausage out here- Jimmy Dean just doesn't hold a candle to Odem's ,Pernell's Old Folks , or Tennessee Pride.
My wife is English, and just doesn't understand about REAL sausage- she thinks sausage is those bland white tubes of meat paste that English people buy at places like "TESCO"S". She resists my efforts to introduce her to the more sophisticated cuisines.

Fadac - C rations - eccchhhh! I particularly hated the ham - several ounces of salt dissolved in something chewy that might have been meat. I used to search out items that weren't supposed to have much meat in them. Loved beans and weenies. Now there are Meals, Ready to Eat(MREs). They come conveniently packaged in a bag in which you can later deposit the results of the meal. The ham hasn't changed, other than it isn't can-shaped. Before they gave up making them, people used to fight to not end up with the omelets-in-a-bag and dehydrated-pork-patties-in a-bag. The meals do have an added plus of causing constipation. (Not necessarily a bad thing when your options are port-o-poopers or a hole in the ground.)

I have a friend (who is now a professor at a prestigious American University, so I will not use his name, unless I send him this thread and blackmail him) who at university concocted this cookbook called "The Bad Food Diet".
It was made up of all the disgusting Kraft recipes mentioned on this thread (Who can forget: "Sit back and wait for the compliments?") and others. The idea was that if you ate some of this stuff, you would hate food for a few days, and persistence in working your way through the book would make you lose a lot of weight. The best section was: "What I Dared My Sister To Drink." which was, no surprise, a description of how to dump whatever you find in the refrigerator or wherever, and put it into a glass, and....

Then there was the roast beef, mashed potatoes, peas, and grape cool-aid. I think we had that twice a day for a few months too.

Canned hot dogs. Yummmm, Brings back memorys. The Army had three deserts. Cherry pie, ice cream and spice cake. Let me tell you about the spice cake. I once put a blasing cap inside a piece on night. We waited untill there were three or four rats eating the cake. BOOOM the cake shattered and killed every rat. YesSir, the spice cake did a few uses.

The lime jello with shredded carrots takes me right back to high school lunches. You'd get the jello, and tater tots, a stale roll, and meatloaf with antiseptic gravy (at least it tasted like it had antiseptic in it). I think that jello with vegetables in it was probably the result of the Jello Company's attempt to broaden it's market with thrifty homemakers of the 50's."Hey Mom! Jello 's not just for desert... add carrots, walnuts, even celery to turn Jello into a complete meal the whole family will love!"

Catspaw, I thought my Mom was the only one who tried to foist off turnips as potatoes. One bite and I knew something was wrong, but she stuck to her story. What was worse, Dad would play along. I'm still a little bitter about it.

Speaking of great foods of the 50's, anybody remeber "Tamale Pie"? It was some kind of chili stuff mixed with canned corn and topped with cornbread. Dad loved it, so we had it about once a week.

Who remembers this...sung to approximately the tune of "The Hinky-Dinky Spider"?

"Oh, the big red letters stand for the Jello fam-i-lee
the big red letters stand for the Jello fam-i-lee..
Strawberry, Raspberry, Cherry, Orange, Lemon and Lime...
"My daddy likes it!"

Commercial on the "The Baby Snooks Show"...starring, and sung by, Fanny Bryce

Dave, How do you toast jello? I tried it once, and it kept slipping off the stick.

Catspaw, But if you stand close enough to the fire and toast it a golden brown, now you've got something. Can't you hear the voice of Ed Herlihy saying "Try this tasty Kraft treat..."?

You have discerned the cause of my dementia, buddy. 48 hours down and 24 to go.

Cheers, D.
