I Was Served

It was last Friday night, when my little boy decided to be creative, and served me dessert! I heard lots of noises in the kitchen while working on the computer, and out of the blue he brought me this dish of dessert.

Imagine my surprise and sheer joy! I made this jello earlier on in the day, put it in the refrigerator, and forgot about it. As always, I was just too busy writing my assignments or trying to catch up on my blog.

My little boy took out the melon cutter, worked carefully to create the ball shapes of this jello, picked out a cute bowl, and brought it to me! He was so proud of his creation and told me to take pictures. Of course, how could I say no to such a thoughtful act from a child?

Even though I had a different idea when I made this dessert, like adding fruits to it, but the simplicity of what my son created just took my breath away. His gesture gave that extra yum to this dessert, and I am grateful.

Tips--You can buy this package at Oriental market, follow the direction on it, and have a quick cooling dessert in less than an hour.

    And he loves his mom! Makes my heart go pitty pat!

    I love those dishes, by the way!!

  12. How sweet! Reminds me of when my little brother would make me "creations" which would usually involve peanut butter and, like, cheerios. But it was the sweet thought that counted and brought me so much joy!
