Pumpkin Patch Salad

The World According to Bella
I have been trying to tell Mrs. S if I have to wear a costume this is the one I want.  No one would recognize me. But she didn't listen. Today in the mail arrived this costume. I feel ridiculous dressed with a monkey hood.

I wish someone would have a talk with Mrs. S.
Love, Bella

Orange Flavored Watergate Salad
Cook's notes: Do you ever wonder how some recipes get their names? I am puzzled over the meaning of this recipe name. 
I have decided to rename it Pumpkin Patch Salad 
This salad is easy enough for kids to make. I wanted to give the salad a more festive look so used a martini glass, added Halloween sprinkles and toasted coconut on top. You could also use a parfait glass.
