You know Chatty is going to be late answering emails and reading your posts - but I will make up for it this week!
This is going to surprise you - this is a barn in Marietta, GA. Not even driving by this time - I am totally still. It is a small barn - probably a shed. I thought it was done so nice. Very patriotic for this day. The bench is red, white, and blue. Red door.
I want to thank every man and woman who have served in the military and their wives or husbands. You paid a price for me. Thank you.
This was on the neighbors mailbox - next to the man's house with the barn. Kind of cute.
- 1 quart boiling water, divided
- 2 (3 ounce) packages jell-o brand berry blue gelatin mix
- 2 (3 ounce) packages jell-o brand gelatin powder, any red flavor
- 3 cups ice cold water, divided
- 1 (3 ounce) package lemon Jell-O gelatin
- 1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip Topping, thawed
ADD 1-1/2 cups boiling water to dry berry blue gelatin mix in medium bowl; stir at least 2 minutes until gelatin is dissolved. Dissolve dry red gelatin mix in 1-1/2 cups boiling water in separate bowl. Stir 1-1/2 cups ice cold water into dissolved gelatin in each bowl.
SPRAY 10-cup flag mold with cooking spray; place on baking sheet. Pour red gelatin into mold. Refrigerate 45 minutes until set but not firm (gelatin should stick to finger when touched and should mound). Meanwhile, refrigerate berry blue gelatin in bowl for 45 minutes.
MEANWHILE, stir remaining 1 cup boiling water into dry lemon gelatin mix in bowl at least 2 minutes until dissolved. Refrigerate 25 minutes or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites), stirring occasionally. Stir in whipped topping with wire whisk. Gently spread over red gelatin in mold. Refrigerate 10 minutes or until set but not firm. Gently spoon thickened berry blue gelatin over lemon gelatin mixture in mold.
REFRIGERATE 4 hours or overnight until firm. Unmold.
I have to tell you something wonderful that happened at church yesterday - we have a man there at church who is Iranian. He has been coming for years and years. His wife is not Iranian and she leads the music at our 3rd service. We go to the 2nd service. Mac told us that he was going to be baptized into the Christian faith today! We stayed for that. It was so cool. I mean he took such a risk. His family will disown him. And he could possibly be killed for that. He actually gave up his old beliefs today and took in Christ. Powerful. Now that is faith.
Okay that is about it - remember I will catch up with you this week.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
