Missing Mimi

My mom died on February 21st of this year. I've always heard that holidays are hard for those who have lost loved ones. Now I'm experiencing it myself. There was a vacant spot yesterday at the Thanksgiving table where once it was filled with a beautiful face and an infectious smile. I still see here frequently in my dreams. I'm thankful for those times when I feel as though I'm with her again. We will never let her memory die. In her honor, I'm posting one of her famous recipes. This was requested at every family gathering. We love you and miss you, Mimi!

Orange Salad

24 oz. cottage cheese
8 oz. Cool Whip, thawed
1 small box orange Jell-O
1/2 cup pecan pieces (optional)
