Good Eating Monday: Jello Mosaic Bars

    Greetings my excellent friends! We saw the Amazing Spider Man 2 this past weekend. In general, it was good entertainment; not as good as Captain America. This Spider Man felt like an "in-between" movie, something like the second Back To The Future did. During the opening action sequence it seemed  Spider Man was a lot more interested in fooling around, then actually stopping the criminal driving wildly through the city. Jamie Fox was fantastic as Electro and Andrew Garfield and Sally Field had a really good moment.
    But I'd forgotten a lot of stuff from the first Spider Man and found myself a little lost at first. I think the film could have really benefited from some kind of brief recap of the last movies highlights to bring the audience up to speed.

    Today's Good Eating recipe is: Jello Mosaic Bars!
    This is easy no bake dessert that looks extremely fancy.
     I made it for Tuesday Bible Study at the Airman Center and all the Air Force kids thought it was fantastic!
    Plus this particular gelatin dessert isn't prone to dissolving while left out for serving as some do.
    The one caution from my experience is this: avoid using lime jello. I found lime over-powered the other jello flavors, so my mosaic tasted mostly lime. Choose any other 4 jello flavors.
    Also, the sugar-free gelatin performed better then the regular kind, so I'd use all sugar-free next time.

    4  3oz boxes of different color & flavor gelatin's, such as orange or peach, strawberry or cherry, lemon, blue or grape
    (avoid lime---too strong.)
    2 envelopes of unflavored Knox Gelatin
    1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk, like Eagle Brand.
    1/2 cup cold water
    5 1/2 cups boiling water
    Cooking Spray

    Add 1 cup of boiling water to each fruit gelatin in separate bowl; stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Pour each gelatin into a small, shallow food storage container sprayed with cooking spray & refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.
    ( I did mine one at a time.)

    When the fruit gelatin's are solid: pour 1/2 cup cold water in a bowl and sprinkle the 2 envelopes of unflavored Knox gelatin over top; let stand 1 minute. Stir in remaining 1 and 1/2 cups of boiling water. Add condensed milk and mix well. Allow to cool slightly. 

    Cut the flavored gelatin's into cubes and randomly place in a 12 x 9 inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Pour cooled milk mixture over cubes, giving a gentle stir to evenly distribute cubes and refrigerate for 2 hours until firm before cutting into bars.
    Eat up, me hearties, yo-ho!
