We both have Birthday's about this time of year... and we laughed about how old we must be getting to spend a weekend like this... but we like it that way.
I have to admit, however, that I am panicked about turning 26. That is just a little too close to 30 for my liking...
I thought about going out to a bar in my most flattering frock...
But I stayed home and finished crocheting granny squares in stead.
Aren't these pretty?
And for Boyfriend's birthday, did I mention I made him a Jello? In a mold? With home made whipped cream? I think I am turning into my Grandmother, whom we fondly nicknamed "The Jello Queen." Visiting her house without having multiple jello flavors to choose from as a treat was unheard of.
I tried make this with whipping cream - I wanted it to turn out kinda like fluff... I read online about stabilizing the cream, but it was 11:00 in the evening by the time I got around to making this so I just decided to dump the cream in and see if it would turn out creamy. It was ok, but I wonder if it would have been better if I had whipped and stabilized the cream and then somehow mixed it in... More experiments to come.
