I also make Jello Jiggler eggs, in all the colors of Jello I can find. I think the adults eat more of them than the kids. I make them out of sugar free jello........don't tell. They taste just as good. It takes a LOT of jello to make them, I make about 6 batches, for a total of 36 eggs. Sounds like a lot of eggs, doesn't it? You have to remember, there are 5 of us sisters, and at least one brother always makes it to this. We have our children and spouses, then my brother-in-laws family will attend, also, so we'll have quite a few kids there.
I love to do it, and have done it for a number of years, since my son was little. OOPS, he is going to be 20 this year, has it been that long? I have the jello egg molds that were given away years ago with a jello purchase, I used to see them all the time, but don't anymore. You can order them here.
I am making my spinach salad, the family requests it almost every time we have a family get together. Here's the recipe:
Tortellini Salad9 oz. refrigerated cheese tortellini
2 c. shredded red cabbage (I buy coleslaw mix, I am LAZY)
6 c. torn spinach leaves

Cook tortellini, drain and rinse with cold water. In 9x13 pan layer cabbage, spinach, tortellini, tomatoes, onions. Pour dressing over top, sprinkle with bacon. Chill overnight. Servings: 8 1 c. servings
I love to do this, I think I am going to get some stuff to make a little more, Michelle told me Jason's family is coming, and I think we will need more food.
