First, something called "Grandma's Sunshine Salad". It is Lemon Jello plus pineapple and carrots.

Lemon jello + water, lemon juice, a little salt and a can of crushed pineapple. Then, you're supposed to let it gel slowly in the fridge until it is thick enough to hold a suspension of carrots. I don't have all day to sit around and babysit Jello, so I put it in the freezer for the first gelling. It is now all finished and in the container, waiting for tomorrow. I did not use the traditional glass dish. NOPE. I bought disposable containers so that I can leave them there.

Second, a Cherry Jello base with whole cranberry sauce, chopped pulp of oranges, diced apple and chopped walnuts.

This one is officially called a Cranberry-Walnut Salad, but the name doesn't quite cover all of the flavors in this. Start with a base of Cherry Jello + water. Add in whole-berry cranberry sauce plus the chopped pulp of two oranges. Then, you're supposed to wait until it gels slightly, so I put it into the freezer with the other one. When the mixture is thick enough to hold the heavier pieces, I have now folded in the diced apple and walnuts and it is sitting in the fridge waiting for tomorrow. Right now, it really tastes fantastic. I am surprised at how good that accidentally tasted. I'm tempted to actually eat some of this tomorrow.
