If you watched the AM session of General Conference today, you heard Elder Holland practically command us to quilt.  The only bad news is that he associated quilts with green Jello.  But also funeral potatoes, which sort of makes up for the Jello.  Anyway, I thought of Grandma Earl's fabulous Jello Salad recipe, which isn't green, but could be if you substitute lime for lemon.  And yes, that is grated cheddar cheese on top.  I loved this as a kid. Enjoy! (If you make this, I want to hear about it!)


2 pkg lemon Jello
2c. boiling water
(Mix and cool)
3 large bananas
1 c. miniature marshmallows
2 c. drained crushed pineapple
Add to lemon Jello - Stir and cool until chilled but not set.  Fold into 2 cups real cold 7Up and set.
Cook until thickened:
2 Tbs. flour
3 Tbs. sugar
1/2 pineapple juice
Remove from heat & add one beaten egg and 2 Tbs. butter.  Return to heat and cook one minute.  Let cool.  Whip one cup whipping cream.  Add to cooled (cooked mixture).  Blend together & spread on top of Jello.  Add grated cheese on top.
