We had a real Southern Supper tonight!

-- Breaded fried chicken breasts and drumsticks
-- Boiled Idaho potatoes
-- Buttermilk biscuits (home made, thank you!)
-- Country gravy
-- Oven-roasted asparagus and yellow squash, and ...
-- The grand finale ... Pineapple-lime gelled salad with pecans. This dessert surely "took me back to days of yore" -- at any Southern church potluck one of the dear ladies would always bring this salad. A couple of happy tears fell from my eyes when it came out so perfectly. Here's the recipe for anyone who may want it.

Inspired by Phyllis Stokes
with adaptations by Chef Charles

6-ounce pack Lime Jello
1-1/2 cups boiling water
(2) 8 ounce packs of cream cheese at room temperature
1-1/2 cups ice water
1 (20 oz.) can pineapple chunks
1-1/2 cups chopped pecans

Dissolve the  Jello in the boiling water. Stir for at least two minutes to make sure it completely dissolves.

Dump cream cheese into blender. Add the hot Jello mixture. Process on high until fully blended.

Pour into a mixing bowl and add the ice water.

Add the crushed pineapple and pecans and stir.

Lightly spray Jello mold with cooking spray.

Ladle mixture into mold, making sure to scoop deep and get the pineapple and pecans.

(There will be about two cups overage. Pour it into a separate, smaller dish.)

Cool until completely set.

Serve on bed of salad greens with pineapple chunks in the center.

Chef Charles,

Beautiful meal!
And the Jell-o salad certainly does have a "days gone by" look to it.
Is that a Sunbeam percolator on the counter?
For some reason, I've had a longing lately to bring home a Sunbeam Coffeemaster.
Probably because I finally acquired a Mixmaster.

That's a 12-cup Farberware perccolator that I got new on I really love it.
