Independence Day

Happy 4th of July to all of my American bloggin' pals! We'll be celebrating simply at the Castle today, just family hanging around the pool and watching the neighborhood fireworks.

In addition to the traditional BBQ fare, I'll be serving up some festive Jello shots for the adults, using sugar-free Jello of course!

Using the speed-set method and substituting most of the water for vodka, one small box of sugar-free Jell-O plus 1 cup of vodka made 24 shots. According to my calculations, that makes each shot about 1 POINT each. Not bad because these babies really pack a punch!

Tomorrow I plan on taking a nice long bike ride to work off whatever indulgences I partake in today, but for now I'm going to sit back and enjoy my friends, my family, my freedom.

Have a Beauty-Full Day,


  1. Hey Ms Rapunzel!

    Love the new look blog :D Sounds like you're doing really well.Those jelly shots sound great - not had one in ages.Just don't trust myself unless I'm making them for a big group.Most would just end up in my gob instead of the guests! xox
