Whip It!

Cool whip containers... every red.neck has gotta have 'em!!!  Well, you know why... right?

You might be a red.neck... If you have a complete set of salad bowls and they all say Cool Whip on the side. (At your Thanksgiving dinner... or Easter - either way!) Cool whip containers are like duct tape... you don't leave home without one.

Uh huh.

At Thanksgiving Mrs. Misty and I went back and forth a few times (laughing hysterically with each comment!) about how left-overs go home in cool whip containers and how there ain't no dinner party complete without cool whip containers...

Well - lookey at what I got (are you hearing the heavenly choir?) - 'cause Misty cares enough to send the verrrrrrrrrrrry best!!!

So....if you have some cool whip - and you need the container for your next dinner party - you could make THIS:

Weight Watchers Strawberry Trifle recipe
Makes 6 servings

1 angel food cake
2 pints fresh strawberries
1 large navel orange
6 tablespoons Splenda sugar substitute
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
fat-free cool whip

1. Wash, stem, and slice strawberries (use an egg slicer to get even slices).
2. Place strawberries in medium bowl.
3. Using a reamer, juice orange into the bowl of strawberries.
4. Stir, adding Splenda, extract, vanilla, and cinnamon.
5. Stir berries in this juice very well and set aside to allow berries to macerate while you assemble the trifle.
6. Tear half of angel food cake into bite-size bits and place in bottom of trifle bowl.
7. Add half of strawberries followed by the other half of the angel food cake torn into bite size bits.
8. Place remaining strawberries on top of cake.
9. Pour juice over the layers.
10. Top with Cool Whip.
11. Chill until ready to serve.
Suggestions: You can garnish the top of the cool whip by saving two or three of the strawberries and making a fan. To do this, place a strawberry stem side down in your egg slicer, slowly lower the top and slice into the strawberry just to the point that it is about to cut through. Pull the strawberry out and spread the slices.

The perfect recipe if you can't cook (like me), perfect if you are on a diet - perfect if you are diabetic!!!  And oh - you HAVE to do something with that cool whip... so that you can send your tub to Misty and have her work her magic!!!  How CREATIVE is she?!!?

I love it - Thank You SOOOOOO much Misty!!!

What do you make with your cool whip?  Sometimes I freeze mine and eat it like ice cream... no cooking (aka: fire department visits) and OH so deeeeelicious!!!

Comin' to you LIVE from a fire-free single-wide... hee-hee
