~ Pink Saturday ~

Happy Pink Saturday!

Today is a very special day~ It's Valentine's Day!

~Thank you Beverly, for hosting this fabulous PINK event~

I'm planning a very special dinner tonight and this is the dessert! I know strawberries are technically red but lets pretend they are pink~ :)

The inside of this delish dessert is PINK & the crust is made out of oreos....YUMMY!

I thought I would share the recipe in case anyone wanted to try this~

Ingredients: 4 cups fresh strawberries, divided

1 can ( 14oz. ) sweetened condensed milk

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 tub ( 8oz. ) cool whip, thawed,divided

16 Oreos chopped

2tblsp. butter, melted


Line 8X4 inch loaf pan with tin foil ( bottom only ).

Mash 2 cups strawberries in large bowl.

Stir in condensed milk, lemon juice and 2 cups of cool whip. Pour into pan.

Top with chopped cookies and butter, press into mixture ( this is your crust )

Cover with foil and freeze for a minimum of 6 hours.

To serve invert onto plate. ( I pulled the edges of the loaf pan away from the side and it came right out ). Frost with remaining cool whip and top with remaining strawberries. Cut into indivual slices and it's READY to ENJOY! :)

Of course it wouldn't be Pink Saturday without a sunrise~ this picture was taken in my backyard Thursday 2/12/09~ It's the most lovely shade of pink isn't it?

Please go by Beverly's for a list of all the fabulous PINK participants today~

Thank you so much for coming by and I hope you have a beautiful day!

Hugs~ J.

P.S. For my Mister~ ( in case you're peeking :)

Happy 10th Valentine's Day~ I love you!!

And you wonder why you're hungry at 6:00 a.m.!!!! This looks delicious. I think I'll have to make it as soon as I see good strawberries in the store!! I think you're a bit toooooo far away from Papa Murphy's to enjoy my perfect pizza but I promise it's great and my kind of easy cooking! I like these pizzas bz you can buy them (they're made fresh) but cook them in the next day or so whenever you want and the flavor is fabuloso!! Have a happy Valentine's Day and thank you for your pink sunrise!

The sunrise is gorgeous...perfect for pink Saturday....I love your song choices today too...I always love your song choices!
A big hug,
P.S. That is so fun that your daughter made a pillow with beads and did a mongram pillow for your guest room! Yay! I can't wait to see it.... That tickles me so much! Girl, you are the reason I started loving Monogram....after seeing it in your home, so pretty....I love to know that someone is able to be inspired, in some small way by something that I really does my heart good. I get so inspired by so many of you blog friends...friends are the greatest I tell ya! Thanks for all you do!
