Eco-Kids Tuesday

Bunny was sick yesterday ... the nasty, throwing up kinda sick.  She's a trooper and was pleasant and so grown up about it.  She napped a lot and watched various movies throughout the day. (for me it is all about balance when it comes to screen time)  Baby Sister missed having her to play with and would pull herself up to the couch and fuss until Bunny would talk to her.  I love the love they share! 

Since Bunny was sick, Nana decided it was a good time to make juice jigglers, using grass-fed gelatin.  Inspired by recipes linked here at Eco-Kids Tuesday, she warmed three cups of juice.  While that was warming, she mixed 1/4 cup gelatin with another cup of juice and let in sit for a minute.  Then she removed the pan from the heat and mixed it all together.  After pouring it into a 9X13 glass baking dish, she refridgerated it for a few hours.  It cut nicely into jiggler cubes and tasted great! 

Bunny appreciated the treat!

Each week I am amazed at how much I am learning from the bloggers that share their links with us! 
Thanks so much to all of you for taking the time to do so.
