Re: OT/Red stuff

Jello salads were a staple of any family or social gathering in my youth. Red orange or black cherry with fruit or berries, lime or lemon with shredded carrots, celery & pineapple. The really fancy ones included nuts or cottage cheese. Whiipd cream & cream cheese showed up a little later. Some I like, some I avoid. Not fond of sugar free gelatin at all.

If it's so evil, why are you eating it?
We often had jello as kids, rather liked it, but it was nearly always plain, no stuff in it - wait no, strawberry jello with bananas in it, yummy. My aunt made the three tiered jello dessert of jello, then whipped cream and pineapple, topped by another layer of jello - which was tricky to try to keep the top layer from sliding into the cream cheese before it set. I was never particularly fond of it, I liked plain jello.
Haven't had it for many years but just the past few months I've been eating the sugar-free black cherry. I dislike the aspartame taste, but the black cherry part tastes good, so I just sort of ignore the fake sugar part of it.

OK, so many of us don't eat read meat, or at least not much. How about red
jello? I just tried my first sugar free, cherry jello. Can I get an EEW?

I had lime last night, which wasn't bad, but definitely not a fan of the
cherry. Keep in mind, I haven't eaten jello since I was child. For me,
thoughts of jello usually bring up one of the most heinous dished my family
used to make for holidays. "Congealed Salad" Now why on earth would you EVER
refer to a food as congealed anything? Conjures up all sorts of visions of
nasty stuff that congeals like blood and fat. My mother used to take red
jello, mix it with cool whip (I think) fill it with fruit and nuts, dump it
all into a bundt pan, then dump it out on a plate when it was cold and call it
congealed salad. Yuck! Speak of the devil. She just called. My bad, it wasn't
cool whip. One recipe had cream cheese and orange jello and pineapple. The
other had cream cheese, bananas, nuts, and orange jello. So, there ya go.
That's my story for the night. Has absolutely nothing to do with plants. I
just felt the need to rant about the evils of jello.
