Boys are Home from Camp and Orange Tapioca Jello

My boys came home from camp on Saturday filled of stories to share and lots of laundry to wash. My goodness their stories were as different as the way their clothes and linens arrived home. The oldest of the two had taken the time to fold each and every piece so that it fit nicely back into the luggage he took. The younger one had pushed and pried all the laundry into the luggage so that it fit nicely. I remember the days of the clean cabin award and the dirty sock award. When I went to camp these really meant something. Now days the cabins or dorms look like they do during real college inspection. WOW!!!!! So now I have a week of laundry to wash as well as the laundry from the rest of the house. I will catch up and while I do let me show you the dessert I will prepare for my family tonight. My mother was a Jello queen in her time using jellos to fix a variety of desserts and goodies. This reminds me of her. I hope you enjoy it as well I shared this recipe at MomsTheWord

  1. My boys always came back from camp with tons of laundry. Their cabins usually won the #1 Cleanest Cabin award too, lol!

    The orange jello dessert looks very pretty and would be so perfect on a hot summer day. Thanks for sharing!
