I keep waiting for Spring to arrive. I woke up on Monday morning and it was 34 degrees! Although the ice is out of all the Lakes, there is still a nip in the air and it can be brisk at times.
At least today we actually saw blue skies and a little sunshine! However, more showers are due to arrive later on.
I had an exciting Amazon Delivery today. Over Easter, I had gotten some cheap plastic containers to put my Lime & Pear gelatin in. The containers had tops which I loved for stacking in the fridge. After Easter dinner, I washed them in the dishwasher and they melted! Ugh!
So I saw some glass ones with tops, made by Anchor Hocking. They’re dishwasher safe and actually quite lovely. They arrived and when I make the gelatin tomorrow I will use the new cups and tops!
The Lime Gelatin Salad is easy. Take a box of Lime Gelatin, and prepare. Drain a can of pear halves, get out some maraschino cherries. Put Pear half in the dish, put cherry in the center, and fill the dish with Lime Gelatin. Put in fridge until it sets. Serve with Cool Whip or Mayonnaise. I like Cool Whip and Jack like Mayonnaise. You choose. We also use sugar-free gelatin, and pears packed in their own juice.
