Orange Jello with Mandarin Oranges

A couple weeks ago, Josh and I went grocery shopping. I always have a list and a general idea of what items we have. We tend to bulk shop, so we only have to go shopping 1-2 times a month. I always tell Josh to get whatever he wants and he’s never been too extravagant. Well, when we returned home from the store, I was putting everything away when I came across 6 new boxes of Jello! Josh must really be wanting some Jello! So last night, I finally got around to making the poor man some Jello. I followed the directions on the box and just added the strained oranges before refrigeration. It was quite refreshing, and Josh as also very happy.

  1. Heat 1 cup of water for 1-2 minutes in the microwave till very hot. Dissolve orange jello mix completely into the water, the instructions say about 2 minutes. Add 1 cup of cold water, and stir.
  2. Open a can of mandarin oranges. Strain out the juice into a side bowl. Add 1/2 the can of mandarin oranges to the jello and refrigerate for 4 hours before serving. You can eat or preserve the remaining oranges for garnish.
