Sweet Amphibians

It’s been a few since I’ve blogged our romps.  Just trying to keep up with life, and now just realized how behind I really am. Christmas decorations and holiday gift guides at every turn, my apologies to Thanksgiving, apparently tis the season to shop! 
So what’s something magical, you can never have enough of, that creates memories leaving a lasting impression? Um no, this is not that kind of blog.  Its books!  Looking for a book theme here? What would my recipients enjoy?

In case you were wondering?  We are reading about cupcakes and look what just arrived in the mail.

Kermit Snack: Green Jell-O Frogs


This recipe will create firm Jell-O that can be cut into shapes and does not melt. Combine 4 envelopes (1/4 oz. each) of unflavored gelatin with 3 packages (3 oz. each) of lime flavored gelatin in a large bowl. Add 4 cups of boiling water and stir until dissolved (about two minutes). Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 9" x 13" pan and chill until set (at least one hour). Either use a cookie cutter to cut frog shapes, or simply cut the Jell-O into triangles and press in two mini chocolate chips for the eyes.  - Ribbitt-Ribbitt
