A fun little find at the local grocery store
OK.........I know I am kind of a nerd to get really excited about gelatin molds, but I wanted to share these cool little mini Jell-O molds I found at my local grocery store last night. I wasn't shopping for Jell-O molds, but they caught my eye. I am not a mom who makes Jell-O......ever. I honestly just don't even think about it. My mom made Jell-O for us quite often when I was growing up. She usually added fruit to it. I have memories of red Jell-O with mushy brown bananas floating on top of it. I liked it. As I said, I just never make it at home. But that is going to CHANGE because I fell in love with these little mini molds and have them jellin' in my frig right now. I realized that one thing I love about these is that I can make individual servings, kind of like the pre-made Jell-O cups you can buy, but they are a really GREEN alternative......no plastic cups to toss or recycle. I think one reason I never make Jell-O is because when you make a whole bowl or pan of it, it seems to never get eaten. It gets thick and chewy on top and you have to just scoop out a plop onto your plate. But with my new molds, everyone gets their own perfect little Jell-O mold. How cool is that?? I might just become a supreme Jell-O chef....you never know. I certainly didn't realize until now that I had so much to say about Jell-O. Anyway........for those of you local readers, I found these at Thriftway, not No Frills.
