eating jello a different way

I have been blog surfing a lot lately. I have been looking for recipes to try. Finding ones that I can make here in Mexico is not the easiest. I have stumbled across a few that look promising.

The other day I found a cute idea of how to make jello more *fun*. As soon as I saw them I knew the girls, especially Bella, would LOVE them. They looked simple enough and it ends up they were.

The only thing I would suggest is straying from the idea of making "mini watermelon". They are definitely cute, but what do you do with all the lime that you remove from the skin? And, being that they are limes, they tend to make the jello a bit sour next to the rind. I only used 2 limes and the rest I used oranges. At least with the oranges you can eat the fruit you removed and they are larger so it takes less to use up the jello.

I have put a link on the side of this blog. You can scroll down to "Yummy things to try" and click on "mini jello watermelon".

And, just so you know, they were a HIT with the girls. This is something I will definitely do again and again.
