When Life Gives you Sour Grapes

Sour Grape Salad at the 2:00 position on the plate

I was asked if my Super Bowl post yesterday could have a tinge of sour grapes.
Well, naturally!

And that got me to thinking.
What about those of us who refuse to enjoy Super Bowl Sunday with the bean dip, barbeque and beer  being prepared in massive quantities on the east coast?

We have to eat, but we absolutely refuse to partake in any Super Bowlish dishes.

So, all you glum folks whose football teams will not be in Indianapolis this coming Sunday–do I have a recipe for you!  It comes via my daughter-in-law’s mother, who made it for wedding rehearsal dinner. We had to forcibly remove the wedding party from the salad so we could get on with the show.

Sour Grapes Salad

8 oz. cream cheese
small tub Cool Whip
½ c. sugar
1 lb. seedless red or green grapes

Wash and dry grapes. Combine cream cheese, Cool Whip and sugar till smooth and lovely.
Fold in grapes and refrigerate.

There you have it. A little something to sweeten Sunday.
You may want to hang onto this one even if your teams are playing Sunday.
If your team loses it will sweeten Monday.

Sour grapes won't stay sour long in that recipe. But your right it might help a few losing fans over the hump.

Not only a clever post but practical as well. Looks like a good way to make use of sour grapes. I'll try it out.
Thanks, Prude.

That grape recipe doesn't sound too sour to me!
