Tomato Jelly Salad

3 tablespoons plain gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
1 quart tomato juice heated
1 teaspoon sugar
2 slices of onion, chopped

1 tablespoon finely chopped green pepper
2 tablespoons finely-chopped celery
1 cup shredded cabbage
1 tablespoon chopped parsley

Place cold water in a small bowl and sprinkle gelatin over top to soften. Heat tomato juice to boiling; add 1 teaspoon sugar and softened gelatin. Stir until completely dissolved (at least two full minutes.) Add onion, celery, and cabbage. Pour mixture into serving bowl and chill until set. Before serving, spread mayonnaise lightly over the top of the gelatin and sprinkle with chopped parsley.

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)
