What we wore and What's cookin' Wednesday

This week we had flops for our cooking day, they were gross! Do not try these recipes...

The first one was for Glitter Grapes. We like grapes and we like jello, how could this go wrong...
Here is the recipe...
Pluck grapes from their stems and rinse in a colander. Pour the gelatin mix onto a plate. Place grapes on the plate one handful at a time and roll around until coated. Transfer to a pretty dish and refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the gelatin to set.

So easy right? Wrong. We used sugar free jello which just makes gross clumps when it gets wet. But Callie found a box of regular Jello in the back of the pantry, so we rinsed the grapes and started over.

The regular jello coated a little better. We stuck them in the fridge to enjoy after we got home from VBS.
They were horrible, sour, hard and crunchy. I will never make this again.

Since we had such a horrible flop I felt bad, so on Thursday we decided to try another recipe off of our list. Callie wanted to make dehydrated strawberries, because on pinterest it said they were like candy... Here is the pin
They did not taste like candy, they tasted like poison! They were gooey and sour, Blech!! It felt like eating raw meat, seriously that was the texture. Yuck! Don't ever make these either.

The moral of the story this week is: Don't mess with fruit!! It's good just the way it is, don't change it or add to it, unless you want something gross, so there.

Now onto the clothes! I have been feeling quite brave this week and wearing more shorts! Callie says they look ok, but she is 7...

I wore this to church, great for working in the nursery when you have to be up and down and all around.

I wore this to the Kellie Pickler Concert (or Kellie Pickles as Callie calls her) It was super fun to get out of the house sans children and have night of dancing and good music!

Flip flops: Old Navy
I wore this last week with my dad on errands to pick up our new window well, you would never guess how hard those are to get if you are just a regular Joe off the street!

Shorts: thrifted

These were the short shorts in questions... I wore these to shop for house stuff. I am currently on the look out for new pillows, stuff to make a family calendar/message wall, picture display and frame ideas and stuff to decorate the laundry. No such luck so far!
