Hi, Crafty Bear. Here's how I make my cranberry jello salad, and everyone raves about it.
Put a pound of cranberries in a big pot with 3/4 to 1 cup sugar and a little lemon juice and 1 cup water. Cook until the berries begin to pop. It will firm up as it cools.
Using one or two boxes of cranberry (or strawberry) Jello, add 1-1Â½ cup boiling water per box of Jello and dissolve well. Add the cranberries, 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts. 1-2 apples diced, and 1-2 unpeeled oranges, washed well and diced. Pour into a 9x13 pyrex baking pan and chill overnight. You can also add some crushed pineapple, if you like. The orange peel provides a perfect foil for all that sugar.

1. Points are calculated by the contents of carbs, protein, fat, and fiber. An egg for example has 2 points. The daily allowance may be 29 points a day and as a bonus a weekly allowance may be 45 points that may be used anytime you need them. A special calculator is used to find points using the labels on foods or the Weight watchers books has them listed. Calories are no longer used in the calculations and all fruits ore zero points and most vegetables are zero points.
This is one of my family"s favorite dinners. It's fast and allows me plenty of time to work on my quilting projects and yet looks like I spent alot of time in the kitchen preparing a meal.
Every night I save the leftover vegetables from each meal. I collect them in a gallon size ziplock bag in the freezer. When the bag is full I pull it out and let it defrost on the counter while I brown one pound of ground beef. Peel and boil about six potatoes and then mash. Mix the meat with the soft vegetables and add a can of beef gravy. Pour into a 9"X12" casserole and spread the mashed potatoes on top. Bake for about 45 min or until bubbly in a 350* oven. Enjoy!
