1 (10-ounce) can tomato soup, undiluted
1 package plain gelatin
3 tablespoons cold water
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 small onion, grated
1 cup finely chopped celery
dash of cayenne pepper
1 small can shrimp, drained and chopped, or 1 cup cooked shrimp
parsley sprigs


Heat soup. Remove from heat. Dissolve gelatin in cold water. Add to soup. Stir well. Add all ingredients except parsley and mix well. Spoon into oiled 4-cup mold. I use a Texas-shaped cake pan. Chill. Unmold and garnish with parsley; serve with crackers.

Variations: You may substitute 1 can of mushroom soup for the tomato soup and 1 small can crabmeat, flaked, for the shrimp, and spoon into an oiled fish mold.
