A Sammich and Dessert

Heat waves mean cold food. So we had these. Not vegetarian, but you could make it so with vegan substitutes.

A sammich of cream cheese and summer sausage on a bagel.

And then we had this Jello salad. Charlie and I love Jello salad, even though we use a generic gelatin powder. They have vegan ones, but not out here in the boonies.


1 3-oz box of gelatin powder
1 cup boiling water
1 can of fruit with juice
handful of nuts (usually pecans)
non-dairy whipped topping, if desired

Dissolve the powder in the water. Stir in the rest. Cover, and refrigerate until firm.

This one is orange gelatin and whole cranberry sauce. We also like cherry and cherries, orange and mandarin oranges, and raspberry and peaches.

Summer's hot, y'all. Take care!

I'm blogging at my place today about a vegetarian feast and a pretty salad.

So many (better) choices for hot days than sausage and gelatin. Cheese/tomato or tuna fish? Ice cream and not jello.

Not even beef sausage and kosher gelatin? I do like cheese/tomato, tuna fish, and ice cream. I'll have them ALL on different days! :) Seriously, I love learning from readers: why not gelatin?
