Better late than never?


So yesterday I posted my mom's recipe for Rainbow Jello Salad.  Last night/this morning I made it.  I thought I would post some pictures.  Sorry they're a little late!  Turns out, I am not as good of a Jello maker as my mother!  I do not recommend using the "disposable" tin containers to make the red/blue jello in.  I bought these thinking they would be perfect, yeah, not so much!  (All of my Pyrex is in storage and everything my MIL owns is, well, OLD and not the right size).

Oh, and I think you're supposed to use 2 boxes of the blueberry and 2 boxes of the raspberry.  I had way too much "dressing" and not enough jello!  One other helpful hint, put the lemon jello in the freezer while you're making the Dream Whip.  It will set up so much faster!  I did end up forgoing the nuts and added the fresh blueberries and raspberries as I suggested!  Despite my little mishaps I think it turned out nicely!
