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.



Project: Knitwear for Chickens

Here is the latest spring knitwear, perfect for Easter....the  Chicken Cape modeled by Auntie Fran, a Rhode Island Red.  The chicken cape is a shawl pattern my friend Cindy gave me,  embellished it with swirls of embroidery. 


Geeky Chicks

OK, we are going into week 4 with the chickens and now they are going from the oh-so-cute stage to kinda geeky almost teenagers (‘tweens).  Their heads look too small for the long necks (sorta like turkeys), longer legs with feathers making them look as if they are wearing cheap capri pants. They are all growing at a different rate. Look and see what I mean….

                                                            How you doin?

                                                             You talking to me?

                                      Can you believe what she is wearing?

                                   Jesse and Sandi visit and laugh at them

Gift from Bob & sings, lights up and does the "Chicken Dance" they are all doing it.

(Lucky for you I do not know how to add audio to the blog yet)
