Marie’s fruit salad
This is a great recipe. I think my Mother in Law made this WAY BACK WHEN for my bridal shower.  I haven’t made it for a long time, and when her friends decided to throw her a surprise get together for her birthday, I said I would send this for them to enjoy.  I mean, I knew she would like it…it’s HER recipe!
When I was making it, my daughter asked me “shower or funeral?” I said “WHAT?!” She said, you usually only make that for showers or when you need to bring something to church for a funeral.
I mean it’s a great recipe for either of these things, but seriously??
made and ready for the party
Ta-Da!! Easy Peasy…

  1. This sounds really refreshing! I’ve never heard of adding jello and pudding together. I can’t wait to make this.
