This is my #1 favorite dessert!
I don't make it very often though.
For if I did I would eat each and every leftover piece all by myself....It is THAT good.
I forgot to take a picture before everyone dug into it so this is as good as it gets this time around. Next time I make it I will try to get a better picture.

In bowl, mix Jell-o and boiling water. Stir until dissolved.
Add frozen strawberries.
Mix and then chill until almost set.
Pour over cheese layer.
If desired, top with 2nd container of Cool Whip and crushed pretzels.
Refrigerate and ENJOY!
Tomorrow I'll share another version of the above recipe that I made for my Dad.
He is a diabetic plus he hates strawberries so his was chocolate, peanut butter and pretzels.
It was super yummy too!
It's that combination of sweet and salty that just hits the spot every time.
Wanna see my new fridge?
It was a frustrating day yesterday as we worked on getting the old fridge out and the new in. We had to take the doors off of the old fridge so that it would fit through the back door.
Once we had it outside we then had to get it down the hill to the front sidewalk.
That is .... A small hill still covered with snow and ice.
But not as much fun as it was trying to get the new one up that same hill!
We finally got it in and then had to mess with changing the door hinges around so that it didn't open up towards the wall.
Why do things have to be so complicated?
Why can't we just plug it in and go with it?
Can you tell that patience is not one of my good qualities?
Oh and do you see that empty space above the refrigerator. There was a cabinet there but the refrigerator was too tall so we had to take the cabinet down. We were going to cut the cabinet down a bit and put it back up but I said don't bother.
I'm too short to even reach that cabinet (even standing on a chair) and besides it will give me full access to the top of the refrigerator which is where I like to place my homemade breads & goodies as they rise before I bake them. Now I will be able to fit 2 full size cookie trays up there when needed.
I will have to get my sage green paint back out though so that part of the wall will match the rest of the kitchen. :0(
24 hours later, it's up and running great. I went shopping last night and again this morning so it's shelves are all fully stocked again. Now I'm keeping my fingers crossed that none of our other appliances break.
Anita from Hayestackhayes reminded me that things always happen in threes. Well if that is the case then I should be OK the rest of the year. We've already had to replace the stove, our computer and now the refirgerator.
I'll still keep my fingers and toes crossed though!
