Mama's Ice Cream Jello Salad

1 double-size box lime gelatin
1 cup hot water
1 cup cold water
2 cups vanilla icecream
1/2 cup drained pineapple
1/2 cup nut meats

Sprinkle lime gelatin over hot water, stirring until completely combined (about 2 minutes). Add cold water and vanilla ice cream, stirring until ice cream is melted. Stir in pineapple and nut meats and refrigerate until set.

My mother, Doris Hill, collected this recipe and handwrote it on a card for her files. She notes that orange jello can be used instead of lime if desired.

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)
