Christmas Jello Salad

Posted on

I was very flattered that so many liked  this Christmas Jello Salad. Here is the recipe
 Layered Christmas Jello Salad

11×7 glass dish or mold
Green or 1st Layer
1 3oz package of Lime jello
1 cup of boiling water
1/3 cup of unsweetened pineapple juice
1 small can crushed pineapple DRAINED
Cream cheese layer

1 Box lemon jello (3oz)
6 TBSP boiling water
1 8oz package of cream cheese (SOFTENED)
1/3 cup half & half
Red Layer

2 packages  3oz each of your favorite RED jello (I use cherry)
2 cups boiling water
1 can (14oz) WHOLE BERRY cranberry sauce
1 tub cool whip (OPTIONAL)
Dissolve lime jello in boiling stir to mix well. Add pineapple juice. Sir in pineapple. Pour into 11×7 dish and refrigerate until set.
In another bowl, pour lemon jello in and stir in the boiling water. Dissolve well. Beat in cream cheese and milk then beat until smooth.
Spread over green layer; refrigerate until set.
Dissolve red jello in 2 cups boiling water. Stir in cranberry sauce. Cool this for about 10 minutes.
Spread this over the other layers. I use a spoon and spread carefully (not letting the red layer seeping into the white layer. You want it to sit
on top; again refrigerate until set.
If using cool whip then ice the dish shortly before serving.
For a buffet, I used the glass dish BUT you could make it in a mold or even a bundt pan. Its very pretty
Bon Appetite.

Holiday Party

Holiday Gathering Report

I think it seemed like everyone had a fun, food filled, game played evening. Lots of delicious amazing food as always shows up , a few requested recipes to appear soon on the blog, and lots of wonderful and creative gifts made for the brown bag swap. 16 members went home with gift certificates to local quilt shops as well.

And without a doubt MVQ members pull out all the stops with your wonderful donations.

Newborns in Need will receive tomorrow approximately ( hard to count it
exact) but 8 baby quilts, 26 knit/crochet Afghans, 6 knit sweaters, 15 bibs, 51 hats, 4 little handmade blankets, 55 outfits, and about 25 other assorted items like socks, mittens, burp cloths, tee shirts, etc. Truly amazing!!!!

And at the 11th hour I heard they didn’t accept toiletries so went on the hunt and this morning I brought 5 boxes of that stuff over to Salisbury to Pettengill House which help needy families. Oh Lordy they were so appreciative as they said no one ever thinks of that stuff for babies.

All in all we did yet another heartfelt drive for those less fortunate.

May everyone have a wonderful holiday season
