Green Jello

I have to work on Saint Patrick's Day so we will be celebrating tomorrow. I love Saint Patrick's Day!! My husband made a remark that some people act like it is a official holiday, I told him it should be. Hey, I'm Irish I should think that way.
Will be making some dinner rolls tomorrow that I have not made in many year. I wanted something to look like a clover (only a three leaf clover this time, maybe I will make one four leaf and hide it in the bread basket) no they will not be green rolls I am not that crazy, close but not yet. :o) Waiting for my jello to set up so I can get my cake ready for tomorrow. I don't have a recipe for it but I will write the recipe down for you on another post. It is super easy, it kind of has the taste of a Strawberry shortcake to me. It is super easy because it is made with a box cake.

2 (15 ounce) cans pear halves
1 (3 ounce) package lime flavored gelatin mix
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons milk
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed


In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup reserved pear juice to boiling. Pour over lime gelatin in a small bowl; stir until dissolved. Set aside. 
In a blender, blend pears until smooth. Fold pears and whipped topping into gelatin mixture. Pour into a mold. Chill until set, about 2 to 3 hours. 
Dip mold in warm water for approximately 5 seconds. Invert onto a serving plate
