Thirsty? It's Kool-Aid Time
Do they even advertise Kool-Aid anymore? With my limited TV watching I'm not too familiar with recent commercials, unless they're on during a sporting event. I'm so not Nielsen material and I cannot talk TV at all with my in-laws who know most of the season's lineups on most channels.
So our friend and neighbor, Mick Ratzlaff (who has a corn recipe for our project) reminds me that Kool-Aid was invented in Hastings, Neb. It's now owned by Kraft, but there's still a Kool-Aid exhibit at the Hastings Museum of Natural and Cultural History.
Here's a link for Playdough made with unsweetened Kool-Aid. It makes for great colors and a really nice scent.
And check this link for Midwest Living's recipe for Kool-Aid Angel Food Cake. I got concerned when I saw the four cups of powdered sugar, but that's mixed with either grenadine, maraschino cherry liquid or Kool-Aid for the frosting. Probably best NOT served with Kool-Aid to drink.
Tomorrow: Details on the proper way to top a Husker Burger and some stuff about trails.
