Red, White, and Blue Jello Parfaits #SundaySupper

I love long holiday weekends.  I get to sleep late, catch up on some writing, and get creative in the kitchen.  Sometimes I make something really fun for the blog, and then never get around to posting it.  That’s exactly what happened with this fun dessert.  I made it well in advance of July 4th, and then poof!  Time flew by, and here I am sharing it to celebrate Labor Day!  The Sunday Supper crew is sharing our favorite recipes for a Labor Day feast!  As with any big meal, everyone knows there is always room for JELL-O.  There’s no better way to top of your holiday eats, than with this super easy Red, White and Blue Jello Parfait.

Red White and Blue JELL-O Parfaits 3

I love the simplicity of JELL-O, and the homespun feel of desserts in jars.  Simple layering can take the easiest treat to the next level, and really wow your guests.  I’m not saying all guests are wowed by JELL-O, but my kids sure are!

This weekend we’ve already attended a birthday party, and bought new books at the used local bookstore.  Today we’ll be heading over to the sprayground for some early family playtime.  Next we will take a break for an afternoon picnic, and then finally wind down for a relaxing dinner, and family movie night!  The best part is, after all that activity, we still have Monday to fit in more family fun, rest time, if I have my way.
