I am linking this post to Keeping It Simple for Motivate Me Monday. Check out the huge list of great posts. You’ll truly be motivated.
I love Jell-o. Whenever we have a family get-together, my family expects me to make something out of Jell-o. They have a right to expect it after twenty years of doing it.
For our 4th of July get-together with our friends, I made one of my favorites. Fake fruit. It’s pretty simple, but a little labor intensive.
Cut lemons, limes and oranges in half, scoop out the fruit and rinse them out.
Make the Jell-o with only half the water. I use 1 cup of boiling water to dissolve the Jell-o and then 1 cup of ice so the Jell-o sets up very quickly. I do let the fruit sit on the counter a bit before I put them in the fridge so I don’t slosh them around.
Fill the shells as full as you can. When the Jell-o hardens, it sinks in a bit.
Everyone gets a kick out of these fruits. I am sure I did not come up with this on my own. I must have seen the idea somewhere. Have you ever made these, or seen this idea somewhere? I would love to know.
Be sure to come back on Friday, July 15th to see my post for Where Bloggers Create. I’ll be doing a drawing to the win the latest issue of Where Women Create. See you Friday!
