Need a quick side dish or dessert, but don't have time to make it? Just keep these few ingredients on hand and when you remember at the last second that potluck at the church or need something quick to round out a summer meal; just give these ingredients to your kids and VOILA 5 minutes later and you have a cool, sweet tasting and no one will ever have to know it was so easy your teenage son could have made it. :)
If your kids don't like the chunkiness of cottage cheese like a few of mine, then just zip the cottage cheese in the food processor really quick and they'll never know it's there!

1 small package (3-oz.) orange Jello
1 can (20-oz.) crushed pineapple (I only had pineapple chunks, so I just drained them then stuck them in the food processor for a few seconds)
1 carton (16-oz.) cottage cheese
1 can (11-oz.) mandarin oranges, drained
1 carton (8-oz.) Cool Whip
Add the dry orange Jello packet
and a 16-ounce carton of cottage cheese (you can blend this first if you don't like the texture)
then dump in a whole can of drained mandarin oranges,
