My handy-dandy reference list of interesting recipies. Someone else created them, I just copied them here. I haven't tried all of them...yet. :)
The "Punch Rule Of Thumb": 1 quart (2 pints) of sherbert or ice cream per liter of soda
Stuff that's worked well:
Toxic Waste Punch
½ gallon of rainbow (mixed flavors) sherbet (= 2 quarts or = 4 pints)
2 2-liter bottles of 7-Up or Ginger Ale
1 envelope green Kool-Aid
Put the sherbet in a 2-3 gallon bowl. Sprinkle the Kool-Aid across the top.
Slowly pour the soda around the sides of the sherbet. The soda will lift the Kool-Aid leaving delightful color streaks and sour flavors.
1 pound ground beef
1 (1.25 ounce) package Taco Seasoning Mix
12 Taco Shells
1 (16 ounce) jar Thick 'N Chunky Salsa
1 (16 ounce) container Sour Cream
24 sliced pitted ripe olives
Mix meat and seasoning mix. Shape into 36 (1-inch) balls; place in 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked through.
Fill each taco shell with 1 meatball; drizzle with salsa.
Top with 2 meatballs dipped in sour cream. Garnish with olives to make "eyeballs."
Part of a seasoning packet works well if a whole one is too strong.
In a time crunch, don't make meatballs, just fry the ground beef, and use a spoon to scoop two blobs of sour cream onto the taco.
Pre-prepped green olives with pimentos work as well as the black ripe ones - whole olives may be too strong, so try slices.
5 kids can go through a dozen tacos before you blink. :)
Worms on Buns
Cut the hot dogs into thin slices - lengthwise - and score the edges (about three cuts per slice).
Boil or microwave until the slices curl like wiggly worms.
Serve three or four worms to a bun.
Stuff I either haven't tried yet or haven't made up my mind on yet:
1 big can green juice (example: Hi-C's "Tangergreen" that doesn't say "non-staining")
Combine green juice and sprite.
Float sherbert in middle
1 13-oz. package lemon-lime Kool-Aid
1 cup sugar
8 cups water
1 can frozen orange juice concentrate
4 cups ginger ale
Worm cubes (ice cubes with gummy worms frozen inside)
3 scoops orange sherbert
Freeze "gummy worms" in ice cubes (several hours ahead)
Empty the Kool-Aid package into a punch bowl.
Add the sugar, then the water and stir until dissolved.
Stir in the orange juice.
Just before serving, add the ginger ale and worm cubes and float the scoops of sherbert on top.
Before long, the punch will be green and "infested with worms".
Swamp Water Punch
1 can frozen OJ concentrate - no pulp
1 2-liter bottle lemon/lime soda
1 half-gallon package of lime sherbert (= 2 quarts or = 4 pints)
Mix all ingredients in a bowl about an hour before serving time. Add dry ice when serving if desired. This will become a brownish green color from the combination of ingredients, but will have a pleasant orange flavor if you can get past the looks.
Normal OJ is not a substitute for frozen canned no-pulp OJ
Ketchup or mustard
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut a wedge into the end of each cocktail wiener to make a toenail.
Cut the tortillas into strips about 4 inches long and 3/4 inch wide. Discard the ends.
Soften the strips in the microwave between damp paper towels for 10 to 30 seconds.
Roll each wiener in a tortilla strip and secure with a toothpick.
Bake for 7 to 8 minutes. Remove them from the oven, then fill the toenail with ketchup or mustard.
