Recipe of the Week: Jello Parfait

Hi everyone!  I hope you haven't all abandoned me yet.  Moving is such a pain. (Isn't it always?)  We aren't completely unpacked - that will take months - but it's good enough to function (somewhat) normally.  At least I can get the kids back into school, start claying and working on my shops again, and (dadatada!) blog!  So here is the recipe for the week.  It may take me a couple of weeks to get completely back into the swing of things but at least I'm here.

This recipe is not all that healthy but you can help it along by using low- or no- fat sour cream and whipped topping. 

Anyway, here it is:

Jello Parfait
(Hmm, I should have saved a strawberry to put on top...)
1 sm. Jello (any flavor, I used strawberry)
1 c. sour cream
1 (8 oz.) container whipped topping
1 cup fresh, frozen (thawed) or canned (drained) fruit to match Jello flavor (I used frozen mixed berries)
Mix the Jello packet with the sour cream. Fold in Cool Whip. Layer fruit and Jello mixture in parfait glasses (or fold the fruit into the Jello mixture like I did.)  Chill. Serve cold.

 It's also good with orange Jello with mandarin oranges or mixed berry Jello with huckleberries (if you can get them - we go up in the mountains and pick them).  Try other flavors and comment here to let me know what other flavors are good.  Ooh, maybe lemon Jello and raspberries, for a raspberry lemonade-type flavor?
