Fluffy Jell-O


Happy Monday Everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was a bit exhausting.  Got some kids sick around here. 5 kids to be exact.  Yep, that's the same number that live with me.  It started last week with just one and made it's way through the group. Sore throats, mild fever, chills, headaches, cough, stuffy nose and fatigue.  Yep..it's a whopper.  According to our doctor, it's a virus.  A virus! All they need is ibuprofen, plenty of fluids and rest.  That's all?!  It's not much, but, they all have varying degrees of it.  One has a worse sore throat than others, one is worse with the headaches, one is more tired...you get the idea.  I am just praying that it doesn't get to me or Mr Plain.  Then, I may just have to leave town.
Enough of about me and my sickness woes.  Let's talk about something else.  How about my sister? This is 'her' dish.  She brings it to everything.  She claims it is world famous. {Yes, she has actually said those words}.  Well, it is quite yummy and it quite a change from your average Jell-O mold-type dish.  It is quite rich, fruity and well...fluffy. It's a perfect bring-it-along dish for your holiday parties.  Just try it..it's world famous!
{a side note, feel free to add some fruit to yours. make sure it is drained and fold it in when you are mixing the sour cream and Jell-O}


Ingredients:
1-12oz container of whip topping {ex: Cool Whip}
1-16oz container of sour cream
1-6oz package Jell-O {any flavor you desire}

Directions:
In a large mixing bowl, mix sour cream with Jell-O.  Combine well.  Then, let it sit for about 5 minutes and let the Jell-O dissolve.  Fold in your whip topping.  Cover and chill in fridge until Jell-O sets {about an hour should be fine}  Store leftovers covered in refrigerator.
{I'm not sure what the exact serving size is, but, it's feeds a large crowd. We ( about 20 people) have it regularly at holidays and it's plenty}

  2. Sorry that kids are sick, I can't imagine dealing with 5 kids sick, you are saint, just have one and with hubby sick at the same time, well its not a pretty sight. LOL I can give a word of advice...for the sore throat, this is what I do as it works 90% of the time. Have the one with sore throat drink a half glass of warm milk with a pinch of each: black pepper and turmeric powder. Best to drink just before going to sleep, but I have also taken it during the day when I felt the sore throat coming on. Do this for 3 nights in a row. Its just away of staying away from OTC's.
