I spent this past week with my feet up. Sounds like fun but trust me when I say ---- gout attacks aren't!!
Fortunately the week before, I snagged three large grocery bags of old magazines (mainly Living and Coastal Living) at a garage sale---having no idea when I'd find time to browse through them.
Perfect timing --- sorta "when life hands you lemons, make lemonade" situation.
I tore out several recipes and a few articles and craft ideas, and recycled what was left.
This one intrigued me.
I used orange jello hoping to create a creamsicle drink. It didn't taste like I remember the frozen combo of orange popsicle/vanilla ice cream bar of my youth but it was very good. It could have been a little thicker --- more ice cream would probably solve that!
In a large pitcher with a tight-fitting lid, add the following:
4 cups milk
1 package (3-ounce) flavored gelatin of your choice
1/2 cup softened ice cream
Shake vigorously until well-blended.
The recipe said to serve immediately but I was curious as to what it would be like if not served immediately. I put the extra in the refrigerator and thoroughly enjoyed it for breakfast this morning.

all aspects of making the most of making do on little---
and having fun in the process.
