Monday Meals

I am linking up with Love Worth Waiting For Mondays meals.  If you are looking for something good to eat you should go check the posts out.


I took the following to a adoption potluck - families that have adopted or interesting in adoption had a get together.


Prep Time - 3 hours   Chill time:  4 hours or overnight

5 pkg -  ( 4 serving size) Jell-O Gelatin Dessert any 5 different flavors.

6 1/4 Boiling Water

1 Cup sour cream, plain yogurt or Vanilla ice Cream ( you pick)

Dissolve 1 pkg Gelatin Dessert
in 1 1/4 ( 300 ml) of the boiling water.

Pour - 3/4 cup (175 mL) of the gelatin into 8 cup (2L) ring mold.  Chill until set but not firm, about 15 minutes.

Chill - remaining gelatin in bowl until slightly thickened; gradually blend in 3 Tbsp (45 ml) of the sour cream.  Spoon over gelatin in mold.  Chill until set but not firm, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Repeat - with Remaining gelatin flavors

Chill - until firm, about 4 hours or overnight.

To Unmold,  dip mold in warm water for about 10 seconds. Gently pull gelatin from around edges with moist fingers.  Place a moistened serving plate on top of mold.  Invert mold  and plate; holding mold and plate together, shake slightly to loosen.  Gently remove mold and center gelatin on plate.

Tip - Use a wire wisk to add sour cream for a smoother gelatin mixture.

Next time I think I wil add fruit in the middle and strawberries dipped in cholate around the edges.  The light color is watermellon - so next time I would use a more colorful flavor.
