This is one of my favorite holidays. I love all holidays, but this one is special to me for a reason. It's the day that my husband Steve proposed to me 22 yrs ago.
We were watching the Macy's fireworks in New York on the rooftop of where I lived. We sat on a blanket and had a glass of wine. I had no idea that he would ask me to marry him that night. It was emotional to say the least. I said yes, and we have lived happily ever after. I can't even believe that 22 years have gone by! But I never forget that romantic evening. He is my best friend and the wonderful father of my children. :) I love you Steve. xxoo
Anyway I thought I would share a yummy and quick recipe for the 4th of July or Memorial Day by Kraft. Sorry the photo isn't as clear as I would like it to be, but you get the idea of what it will look like.
I am going to make it for my family. These patriotic parfaits layer red gelatin cubes, whipped topping and blueberries in dessert dishes are delish!
What you need:
cup boiling water
pkg. (0.6 oz.) JELL-O Strawberry Flavor Sugar Free Gelatin, or any other red flavor
cup cold water
tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP FREE Whipped Topping, thawed, divided
ADD boiling water to gelatin mix in medium bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Pour into 13x9-inch pan.
REFRIGERATE 4 hours or until firm.
CUT gelatin into 1/2-inch cubes. Reserve 1 cup COOL WHIP for garnish. Layer blueberries, remaining COOL WHIP and gelatin in 8 dessert glasses. Top with reserved COOL WHIP.
