Something completely different

Still no baby. Dammit.

It's a dreary day outside, Bean is indulging in a brutal new temper tantrum phase, and I'm in need of some novelty to take my mind off my enormity and sore pelvic bones. A friend is bringing over her 2 kids and some empanadas in a couple of hours, bless her, and Bean and I whipped up a (ahem) congealed salad just for kicks. That's Jell-o salad for you non-Southerners out there. Got the recipe right out of my local garden club's cookbook which lists about a dozen different Jell-o salad options.

I don't know why the prospect of Jell-o has been lurking in my mental periphery lately as something delicious and desirable, but it has. I haven't made Jell-o since I was about eye level with the kitchen counter and it was a big deal to help my mom make it. Chalk it up to nesting, I guess. Once it sets up, it's going to be such a fabulous afternoon snack, though!

Jello!! Wow, I haven't made that in FOREVER either...I think I might have to now. I remember making it with my grandma, and she always let me taste it while it was still a little warm...and it was so good! I wanted to drink the whole bowl.

I was just thinking about you and came over to check dadgum that baby is stubborn.

I pray she is born soon. I know how you feel. It sucks waiting.

Mmmm. Jello. Strawberry Banana jello. Artificial and amazing all at once! The Rabbit's a Sagittarius...FYI.

I think I am starting to feel sympathy pains for you! I'm good with that, as long as they're pregnancy sympathy pains and not labor and delivery sympathy pains!

Congealed salad? That doesn't sound even remotely tasty. Congealed is one of those phobia words for me though. I hope it was delicious, and I hope your kid makes an appearance soon!
