Jello -n- Cantaloupe

I was sitting here staring at this blank page wondering what to post. I'm finally cooking the roast that Craig brought home late last night, but I've already posted that recipe and picture several times. So, I figured that I'd post a silly little post of jello... I remember eating jello as a kid. My Daddy used to squish the jello through his teeth with his tongue. That was something that my Mama did not tolerate. No food noises... no smacking or chomping! Of course Daddy loved to taunt Mama! That's when she started putting fruit in the jello, to make it more difficult for him to make noise. It didn't really work... but she tried. Here's the same concept, but backwards. Jello in the Fruit... instead of fruit in the jello!

1 Cantaloupe 
1 package Jello 
 Cut the cantaloupe in half lengthwise, remove seeds & dry center well with a paper towel.

 Prepare Jello powder following package Instructions for Jello Jigglers. Place cantaloupe halves in small bowls and spoon the liquid jello into the centers, fill to the brim. 

Chill until firm approximately 3 hours.Cut into wedges to serve.When placing on serving plates do it carefully so the jello stays on the cantaloupe.
