Jello blocks

Jello blocks, originally uploaded by shersteve.

Growing old brings you back to youthful things. I had avoided having a colonoscopy until yesterday. The exam itself was okay, the prep was the hard part.

It takes at least 24 hours to prepare for a 20 minute exam. There has got to be a better way to prepare.

Fortunately I do like jello. Recent changes in the prep now require an avoidance of red food coloring in the drinks and jello. So orange and lime became the flavors of the day.

I made jello blocks. It is a denser form of jello. Simple to make. You reduce the amount of water by half. Everything else in the jello prep is the same. The benefit is that the jello can be sliced into blocks to become finger food. You won't need a spoon.
