February

February is the in between month of the year. It's between the coldest month January, and the beginning of Spring in March. Oh how I wait for Spring time. Everything starts coming to life once again after a long weary sleep under a blanket of snow frozen over top.
 I have been keeping busy making my dolls and trying out some new recipes and old ones.
  I made this wonderful congealed salad last week and it didn't last long. It is well worth the effort in making it.
I will share it here. This is an old recipe and very good.

     (Fruit Bavarian Jello)
Dissolve one 3 oz. box lime jello in 1 cup boiling water. Add 1/2 cup cold water. Pour into an 8 x 8 inch square pan and place in refrigerator to set up.
Mix 1 cup ground graham crackers  with 1/4 cup melted butter. Press into a 9 in. x 13 in. glass pan.
Bake in 350 degree oven for about 10 min. or until crust starts to brown. Time depends on your oven.
Mix  one 3 oz. box pineapple or lemon jello and 1/4 cup sugar into 1 cup of boiling water. Stir to dissolve. Place in refrigerator until it begins to thicken.
 Whip 2 cups heavy cream until fluffy. Add 1 can 8 oz. pineapple tidbits (drained)
1 cup miniature marshmallows and 10 maraschino cherries halved into the whipped cream.
Fold all of the above into the thickened pineapple jello.
 Cut the lime jello into 1 inch squares and add to the pineapple jello mixture. Fold all together and scoop onto the graham cracker crust. Sprinkle walnuts over the top and chill until set.  Yummy!!!
