Despite the hoards of snow we got from a blizzard Saturday night and all day Sunday,my goddess ladies showed up to my intimate Christmas gathering. All day I awaited their cancellations.... each woman braved the slippery roads.One husband offered to drive his wife, then pick her up two hours later...after informing him she'd be staying at least four hours...he opted to let her take his truck instead. They look clunkier in person!
Finding parking was horrific. I threw on my big clunky square toed shoes with a dress no less...very bohunk looking, I just needed a babushka to complete the look!. I can legitimately call myself that because I am one quarter Ukrainian and one quarter Russian...the rest is Irish and Scottish! I quickly jumped in my jeep....more like hobbled with my gimped knee. As I was driving to pick up one goddess who lives a few complexes over, I saw a kid laying in the middle of the road, while three of his cronies stood by watching. I think he was playing chicken...he stared at my car and continued to lay across the road way! Omg does this boy not know about MENTAL PAUSE!!!(MENOPAUSE)
Holy toledo! He didn't move and so I had to stop....I was yelling some expletives, he could probably read my ( are you a total EFFING IDIOT...OMG ) lips. Meanwhile the car behind me stopped too.. the kid then jumps to his feet forms his fingers in the gesture of an "L" for loser sign.... Thank goodness I wasn't driving around in my last years brakes that were over ten years old!
Was I not looking like a crazy woman, had I not had on my funny bohunk shoes with a dress....and if I was twenty five years younger....I would have jumped out of that car so fast...his head would have spun! He WOULD have been scared in my former days!
I also met my Fairy Goddess there too! I taxied them both to my place where the party began!
I'm posting my new traditional Christmas dinner dessert.
Trust me this is a huge hit and beat trifle by far
, everyone loves it!
2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons of margarine
3 tablespoons of sugar
Mix those three ingredients together
pack down into a 9x13 pan
place in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes
Prepare 2 cups boiling water add 2 packages of raspberry Jello stir well
then add a 600 g package of Frozen raspberries to the hot jello and stir
Place the mixture in the fridge for a bit then stir half way through ...
so it's a thickened but not solid
Beat one cup of white icing sugar with one package of cream cheese 8oz
Then fold in the 500 g tub of Cool whip
After the graham cracker base cools,
put a thin layer of the cool whip mixture over the whole base
then spread all the raspberry mixture,
finish off with the rest of the cool whip mixture.....
sprinkle some loose graham cracker crumbs for eye appeal
Store in the fridge.....can be doubled and frozen too!
So yummy my brothers favorite dessert!
