Faye Buoy's Lime Jello Salad

1 box lime jello
1 cup boiling water
1(3-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1 small can (4 oz.) crushed pineapple
1 cup celery, cut fine
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup whipped cream

Dissolve lime jello in boiling water. In a mixing bowl, mix the jello, a little at a time, with the cream cheese. Stir in undrained pineapple, nuts, celery, and marshmallows. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into serving bowl and chill until firm.

Whipped topping could probably be substituted for whipped cream in this recipe.

Faye Buoy contributed this recipe to the Jolly Neighbors Extension Club of Rose, Nebraska, for a hand-written cookbook that they made during the early 1960's. I have expanded the directions a little because all the recipes were greatly condensed to fit on one side of a 3x5" recipe card. The Buoys lived east of Rose. We were in 4-H with the Buoy kids.

Another great Easy Recipe

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
