Foodie Friday is going on over at Gollum's place, Designs by Gollum. Got a great recipe to share, need one for supper, or just looking around? Hop over to Gollum's place and check out all the great recipes. This also my first posting for Foodie Friday!
This is a recipe my mom had in her personal recipe book. I got this book when she passed away. It was falling apart, the pages were turning brown, and some of the pages were falling out. I have since then turned this into a scrapbook. All mom's recipes, clippings, little booklets and everything else she had in there are preserved in this scrapbook.
This is one of the recipes that was in her recipe book. I tried it and it turned out really good. But I can't for the life of me figure out why it's called strawberry salad!
2 boxes Strawberry Jell-o
1 ¾ C. Hot Water
2 boxes Frozen Strawberries
1 small can Crushed Pineapple (undrained)
Mix jell-o according to package directions. Thaw Strawberries. Mix strawberries and pineapple into jell-o, stirring well. Put in fridge to set.
Juice of 1 Lemon
½ C. Sugar
1 8oz. Cool Whip
In a saucepan mix lemon juice, eggs and sugar. Cook over low heat until it thickens. Cool mixture, then add Cool Whip. Top Strawberry Jell-o mixture.
