Fourth of July Jell-O!

Bluebird is working on the requirements for the Brownie Girl Scout "Wave the Flag" badge, and one of the things she could do was hold a celebration for a patriotic holiday.  Naturally, she chose to throw an Independence Day party.  She kept herself and her sisters busy for the two weeks leading up to the 4th making decorations (which they never hung up) and decided on a menu (Cookies and Lemonade Water).

I stepped in to help with the menu, and while we were browsing for dessert ideas, we came across a recipe for Layered Jell-O, which I've been searching for for years!  A link at the end of the Layered Jell-O post led us to the recipe for "Broken Glass Jell-O," which Bluebird thought would be smashing (hee hee) in Fourth of July colors.

Bluebird attended her dessert-making responsibilities well: she cut up the colors, mixed them together and supervised my pouring of the white liquid into the dish.


The Jell-O went into the refrigerator to set, and the dessert was met with rave reviews at our little holiday dinner:



Good job Bluebird!  Thanks for making our Fourth of July dinner extra special!
