Patriotic COOL WHIP ParfaitsCasey Mullins
Picture me holding a tub of COOL WHIP whipped topping high above my head and proclaiming it the thing that changed the way Thursday nights roll in this house as of late. You see, Thursday nights are ‘feed the missionary’ nights and after a full day of sun, swimming, sprinklers and splash parks the last thing I want to do is cook a whole bunch. But I do it because these boys need food and I know their moms feel a little more peace knowing their sons are being well fed and welcomed into homes like ours.
Ever since we began experimenting with COOL WHIP at the beginning of this campaign Addie has gotten more and more creative and more and more willing to come up with new ideas and desserts on Thursday nights so I have one less thing to worry about. Bless this child of mine, for she is spectacular and amazing.
While brainstorming one last thing we could make with our COOL WHIP Addie shouted “RAINBOW PARFAITS!” because rainbow anything is magical to a kid and parfait is awfully fun to say. With the Fourth of July coming up we decided to go patriotic rather than rainbow and once everything was washed off and prepared? Addie took it from there.
Raspberries, blueberries and strawberries are all crazy cheap and readily available right now. Our fridge is stocked with at least two dozen pints of various berries, ready to be eaten with yogurt, frozen for smoothies or tossed into parfaits. Addie constantly begs to use fancy glasses for things and this gave her the perfect opportunity to let her not only use the fancy glasses, but show off another dessert made by her skilled seven year old hands.
Blueberries, raspberries, COOL WHIP and a strawberry garnish? Done, sold, delicious.
I’ve come to believe that it is our right as Americans to have our kids cook for us once they are able, even if it’s something as simple as fresh berries and COOL WHIP in a wine glass.
