We survived another Halloween on Woodland Ave! We have set boundaries: we buy 720 treats and when they are gone, we are done. It’s nice that people help us on our street, donating extra treats, but for us at our age we only have stamina for so long! The little ghosts and goblins started coming at 3:30 pm and by 6:40 pm we were done. When we first moved to our home we would have a break in between our little visitors but nowadays we have to stay outdoors all the time to keep up with the crowds! We do enjoy seeing everyone’s costumes. So many parents come with the children and dress in costume too. All are very polite and all say “ thank you!“ It’s a real family affair that’s nice to see! I have never been crazy about Jello but I have a few jello salad recipes I do enjoy.
Today’s recipe is one of my favorites, you can put it in a mold. If I do that, l like to fill the center with fresh strawberries or it works in a bowl, too. I hope you enjoy this one!
Tart Lemon Ring Mold:
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 cup cold water
1- 6 oz. package lemon jello
2 cups boiling water
1 can (12 oz.) frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
2 cups whipping cream
3 Tbsp powdered sugar
In small saucepan sprinkle unflavored gelatin over cold water, let stand one minute, bring to boil, stir until dissolved.
In a large bowl dissolve lemon jello in boiling water, stir in unflavored gelatin and limeade, chill until syrupy.
Whip cream, adding 1 Tbsp powdered sugar at a time until holds shape. Beat jello until it’s foamy, then fold in whipped cream. Pour into a bowl or greased 8 cup mold, chill until set. What a beautiful Fall week!
