Orange Tapioca Salad

1 package (3 oz.) orange gelatin
1 package (3.4 oz.) instant vanilla pudding
1 package (3.4 oz.) instant tapioca pudding
1 can (15 oz.) mandarin oranges
1 can (8 oz.) crushed pineapple
1 carton (8 oz.) whipped topping, thawed

Drain oranges and pineapple, reserving juice. Add enough water to juice to make 3 cups liquid. Bring liquid to a boil. Whisk in jello and pudding mixes. Return to a boil, stirring constantly; boil for 60 seconds. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Fold in oranges, pineapples, and whipped topping. Spoon into a serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

One of those "salads" that can double as a dessert. Recipe from 2008 Taster's Luncheon, Hopkinsville, KY. (Sandy Richey)

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)
