Jello Dessert

The Sunday Funday Bloggers are sharing Dessert recipes today.....
Sneha of Sneha's Recipe asked us all to bring a dessert to our Sunday Funday gathering today in honor of our friend, Rebekah of Making Miracles, who is celebrating her birthday today.

I served these up on Memorial Day but they are really perfect for anytime and would be especially wonderful when we celebrate Independence Day next month.

I know I shot some photos of the entire pan of these bars but I can't seem to locate them anywhere.  I'm just grateful that I had taken this shot of a piece that I cut for myself to enjoy the day following the festivities.

Yesterday we were at a Memorial gathering for my nephew's mother where we had a casual dinner with him and those who love him.

Today our choir group is coming over for a BBQ.  I'm looking forward to it.  Tuesday night we are taking the Teen, Roz and our niece, Danielle, to Mean Girls, the Musical. We are having dinner out before the show.  Wednesday we are meeting Bob and Cathy for lunch and then all coming back here to lounge around the pool and I'll put out Charcuterie for a light dinner.

So I'm including our Weekly Menu....what's on your menu for this upcoming summer week?
