Anywho, I was thinking about the recipe that I posted regarding my Jello Pudding Pie and I probably should have clarified the directions a little more. When mixing the jello, do not let it harden. I usually do mine using the "Speed-Set Method" on the back.
|Thickened jello on bottom and cool whip on top.|
|After refrigeration and ready to serve.....but I like more topping!|
|Playing with my festive side. :-)|
|The end result! It was yummy!|
Well, I actually had a little bit left over and I ended up making mini jello pie cupcakes for my oldest Bambino. No topping, just jello. Its such a light and airy dessert. It goes well with the busy mom and with toddlers! :-)
I'm totally doing this at all of his functions and parties from now on. I'm one of those parents that doesn't let him eat anything too sugary (besides plain chocolate or vanilla ice cream), nor french fries. My husband lets him eats our Lightly Salted Lay's potato chips and I *side-eye* that. My thing is this, he's 18 months and we're almost 30...I think he'll learn what cakes, pies, french fries and greasy fast food is between now and then, so why rush any of that stuff? Hey...he'll probably be wanting it by the age of 3! Yikes....
Fun at the neighborhood pool...
My Swim Hair
I had my hair in a side ponytail. I put lots of conditioner on it before heading to the pool, just in case I decided to actually swim. The conditioner was meant to help ease the detangling process that I would have had to do. Turns out I just head my little tot in the pool and when the hubs and I switched duty, my oldest one wanted to be "chased" around instead of continue swimming. Now I have to figure out how I will be wearing my hair during our family vacation to Myrtle Beach next weekend.
God, bless little Caylee.
All I can do is say "Wow!" to our justice system. If Casey Anthony didn't do this, then who did?!? Has anything been learned since the OJ Simpson trial? What happened to intuition? The mistreatment of that poor little girl and her mother not being brought to justice literally brought tears to my eyes yesterday. Well, now Caylee is a beautiful angel...kinda like in the book The Shack. And if her mother did play a role in this, only she has to live with those memories and guilt and shame.
