Sometimes when I read a new recipe, I will jot down all of the ingredients and proceed to pick them up the next time I am at the grocery store. And I must admit that sometimes I don't ever get around to making the recipe; in fact I will forget all about the recipe, and wonder just exactly what did I have in mind when I purchased certain items. A good case in point is when I have bought various flavors of Jello, and the boxes end up more as a decoration on my pantry shelf. A couple of months ago, I gathered up all of the stray boxes of Jello, and found a nice little home for them in a little square plastic box. At that time, I told myself that I really needed to make it a priority to use them up, instead of letting them just go to waste. So in recent weeks I have been very diligent to keep a fairly steady supply of little 1/2 cup containers filled with this colorful sweetness. My girls and I have all enjoyed just grabbing a little container to toss in a lunch bag, or better yet, enjoy a serving for dessert after dinner. They are such a nice guilt-free dessert, and for me, satisfy my sweet tooth just fine. But now that the little storage box is beginning to look a bit empty, I think it is time to restock.
