It's just so hot today

nothing really sounds good.

well, maybe ice cream, or a sorbet

oooo an italian lemon ice!

::rummages through her recipe folders::

Found it!

1 cup boiling water

1 small package unflavored gelatin

1/4 cup sugar

1 cup chilled lemon lime-flavored seltzer

1/2 tsp grated lemon peel

3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

Stir boiling water and sugar into gelatin in medium bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Stir in seltzer, lemon peel and juice. Pour into 9-inch square pan; cover.

Freeze 3 hours or until frozen. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes.

Beat with electric mixer or blend in covered blender container on high speed until smooth. Spoon into dessert dishes. Store leftover ice in freezer.

My boys loved making this when they were small. I think breaking up the flavored ice was the best part for them. (grin)

Well, after eating it, of course!

They also liked adding other flavors via kool-aid packets when my back was turned!
