Raspberry Treat

 Three of us gals used to run around all the time together.  When I lived at home and was retired half days, we charged around the countryside, taking in the gift shops and the movies, and the restaurants...  the little out of the way places, the road trips...  and oh, the laughs.  We called these excursions "Thelma and Louise" days...  minus the cliff at the end, of course! 
 Today we had a Christmas party here.  Mom and I just planned it yesterday, and it turned out perfect!  We served Quiche, Italian Spring Salad, Southern biscuits, Homemade Vegetable Garden Dip, chicken salad, and a delicious new frozen confection....
 My dear friend was here on Monday, and I didn't get to see her, but she brought wonderful treasures and left Mom with her Frozen Raspberry Bar Recipe  (along with a Frangelica Cake that is amazing!!!)
 Easy Peasy recipe that is really delicious!~   I'm adding it at the end of this post if you need a quick conclusion to your Christmas meal.

We tossed on a really sweet vintage tablecloth and used my new snowflake dishes..  So pretty!  These little cardinal cups and the Philosophy baubles were their favors...

Raspberry Treat

1 quart Raspberry Sherbet
1 medium carton Cool-Whip or 2 cups whipped cream, whipped
1 pkg. Oreos.  I used red icing Oreos...  So pretty!

Thaw sherbet slightly and press in a 9 x 13 pan or casserole.  Crush 2/3 of the Oreos and blend with the whipped cream or Cool Whip...  Spread over sherbet and freeze at least three hours.  Slice into squares and top with a dollop of whipped cream and an Oreo...  So pretty!!!  Refreshing!!!  Yum-o!
