Happy Fourth of July!

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
cups  blueberries
Make It:
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.
