DONE! And Dessert!!

Well ... since we've rolled over into February, that means ... sign up for OPAM 2013 is now CLOSED!! Thank you and welcome to all who've joined Sweet Peg and me to play along this year. It's lovely to see so many "Repeat Offenders" signing up again ... that means they've enjoyed being part of OPAM previously and want to play along again! :0) And wonderful to have some "Newbies" joining us too ... you're in for a lot of fun! :0) (Bonjour to the lovely ladies joining us from France this year!!) Thanks to those eager beavers who've already emailed their January finishes through to Sweet Peg or me ... but there's no rush THIS month. You see, Sweet Peg and I are still sorting out lists and links etc, so to give ourselves a bit of breathing room, we'll be doing a double random prize draw at the end of February ... a combined January/February draw, so stay tuned for that. It means you've got until the end of February to get your list of finishes on your sidebar and up to date. So all that's left to do now is ... GET STITCHING!!! Tee! Hee! Hee!

I don't like to have too many posts without photos, but since I'm currently working on my Secret Squirrel project for Girls Stitch In and can't show you photos of that, I thought I'd share my current favourite dessert on the run. It's simple (you definitely don't have to be a Master Chef!!), quick to make, not too naughty and YUMMY!! :0)

Step one ...

... set out six ramekins. The ones I've used are about 3/4 of a cup, but a little larger would work OK too.

Step two ...

... divide a can of fruit evenly between the ramekins  For this version, I used fruit salad, but I've also used peach slices and that worked well too ... I've got a can of dark cherries to try this week ... YUM! :0)

Step three ...

... make up a sachet of lite jelly (jello, maybe for some overseas??) this one was a berry flavour of some sort and I used peach and vanilla for the peach slice version. You can just pick your favourite, though.

... divide the jelly mix evenly into the ramekins and pop the into the fridge to set.

Step four ...

... into another ramekin, spoon some of your favourite vanilla yoghurt ... I added about a tablespoon per ramekin.  Add a good shake of cinnamon and stir it through well. Then add a good dollop of cinnamon vanilla yoghurt into each ramekin and serve ... ENJOY!!

Told you it was super simple ... even junior chefs could handle this dessert. :0) All of the ingredients are lite, low fat and sugar-free, so, good for the waistline and by preparing them in the ramekins  you aren't as tempted to have too large a serving or go back for seconds. Well ... that's the theory anyways! Tee! Hee! Hee! You can use all sorts of variations for the fruit and the jelly flavour. Let me know if you try my quick dessert idea and tell me what you think. :0)

I'm off to start organising my OPAM lists ... Sweet Peg and I will be adding a full list of all participants to our sidebars very soon so you can start visiting each other to give encouragement. :0) Right now, I'm off to play Polly. Have a great weekend - Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!

I love those ramekins Kris. The dessert looks lovely but I'd leave off the yogurt (can't swallow yogurt!). I just love jelly and fruit.
