COOL THINGS TO EAT:
The first thing that comes to mind is.................JELL-O!
This recipe has always been one of my favorites. It's easy to make, and sets up in an hour or so. A perfect cool ending to a summer meal.

1 Tablespoon sugar

Add to gelatin and stir until ice is partially melted.
Then add cream cheese.
Blend at high speed for 1 minute.
Pour into individual dessert dishes or serving bowl.
Chill until set, about 1 hour.
Garnish as desired.
This recipe also works well with other gelatin flavors! Cherry, Pineapple/Orange,
you get the idea!
You can switch up your garnish to match the main flavor.
Use a twist of lemon peel on top of the LEMON-CHEESE Chiffon.
Use a twist of orange peel for a PINEAPPLE/ORANGE-Cheese Chiffon,
or a section of mandarin orange with a sprig of mint?
How about a candied lime slice for LIME-ORANGE-Cheese Chiffon?
There are lots of ways to make this fancy, or just serve plain. You decide!
