Jello Peep Salad

For some reason I did not have any requests to make my Easter Jello Peep Salad again this year for the holiday buffet.  Wonder why??  So I wanted to share the recipe anyway (and remind the family that Peeps keep the peep salad may appear again).

Jello Peep Salad

Jello - Large size any light color, prepare according to package directions


Can  of Fruit Cocktail, drained---remove pineapple bits

2 Carrots, cut into thin sticks

1 Celery stalk, cut into thin sticks

Pour the liquid Jello into the pan. Place in refrigerator for just a few minutes until thick but not set. Take from refrigerator and place your Peeps around the circle Upside Down and completely into the jello. The bottom of the peep should be just visible above the top of the jello mold. Now, place your carrots and celery sticks straight down into the Jello around the the Peeps. Finally, spoon the chopped fruit all over the base of the mold and press very gently so that the fruit becomes embedded into the Jello without disturbing the Peeps or the carrot and celery sticks. Chill completely. When the jello is set, up-end your mold onto a plate and you will have a little scene of peeps playing ring-around-the-rosy amongst the grasses and fruit-y looking flowers.



Peeps Update

The chicks will be one week old on Friday, March 5th.  They have grown so much in the past 6 days.  Little wings are starting to grow, tiny tail feathers, they are even a bit taller!  First chick to hop into my hand was one of the Buff Plymouth Rocks (yellow ones).  She has done this for a few days now.  Her name is Auntie Bessie Marie.  They will be named after our aunts, my family from Massachusetts, so they are the Plymouth Rock girls…Dan’s family from Rhode Island (and having red hair) will be the Rhode Island Reds.  All shall have the middle name: Marie (family tradition, keeps the Marie Club growing).

Everybody who comes by the nursery to visit the chicks gets free marshmallow peeps.
