|Life, March 5, 1945|
Now that you have desecrated your apple, it's time to move on to the main event. Just - pull another stunt! Really, that is what it says:
...pull another stunt! See what a good hearty salad you can make with a few carrots and peas, a hard-boiled egg or two - and some Jell-O!
And then you will have "Jellied Vegetable Entree." It is what you see when you look up the phrase "A recipe for disaster" in the dictionary. Unless you are having some little twee cartoon rabbits over for dinner. They seem to like this sort of thing.
It contains canned peas and carrots, onion, vinegar, cayenne pepper, lemon or lime Jell-O. And hard-boiled eggs. They may be as hard-boiled as Sam Spade, but they are frightened. You can see that. They are edging up just to where they can peek out of the lemon (or lime) Jell-O. Some of them have escaped, but are making the fatal mistake of resting on the plate.
Run for it, hard-boiled egg slices! This is your chance, while they're across the room getting the mayonnaise. You have to fill the center of the Jellied Vegetable Entree with mayonnaise (it is the law). Just watch out for the mutant apple Jell-O molds out there.
