Cottage Cheese, Jello, and Granny Squares - What am I 60?

Saturday night out for Boyfriend and I consisted of shopping for home goods at Target where we bought awfully exciting things like paper towels and shower curtains and bedsheets.  It was terribly exhilarating.  We capped off our night with an early dinner of a sandwich with cottage cheese, which we split and topped off with decaf coffee at a diner that closed at 8:00.  It was uneventful, relaxing, and quiet.

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. 

Mmmm... lime.

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.
