Jello Slices

As soon as I saw these cute things on Pinterest I knew I had to make them. I was worried they might be more than I bargained for but they were actually pretty simple. The kids loved them and had so much fun eating them.

First Hollow out the fruit of your choice.
I used lemons and oranges.
( My kids tried helping me with these but only Jackson my 7 yr. old was capable enough to accomplish the task)
Make your jello.
I used 8 oranges and 8 lemons and used 4 boxes of jello

Make sure they are pushed together enough that they are level when you pour in the jello.
Carefully put it in the fridge. It only took about 3 hours to set up and then I sliced them. Using a small serrated knife.

Chicken roll-ups

I love when I am able to make a meal that cleans out my fridge. I saw a version of these on pinterest . Since I didn't have all the ingredients I just pulled out everything I had that would taste good in something like this and had at it. They actually turned out really good. The little guys would make a great little finger food at your next gathering or a simple lunch for yourself.

Don't be afraid to make this your own and experiment with your own tastes and the items you have on hand!
Chicken roll-ups

Tortillas for rolling
1 12.5 oz can of shredded white meat chicken (kirkland) / or shredded chicken
1 cup of diced tomatoes/ 1 can diced tomatoes
1 bunch of scallions chopped
1 cup shredded cheese
1 tbsp. chipotle in adobo (optional - depending on your heat level)
1/2 of a container of Santa Fe blend cream cheese

Mix all ingredients together. Spread on the tortilla, roll it up without folding in the ends and refrigerate. Then cut into sections and serve.
