This weekend's project: Jell-O.
Stir one pack of powder in boiling water for two minutes, mix with cold water for another two minutes, then refrigerate for at least four hours. Serves eight.
If I knew it was this affordable and easy I would have tried it a long time ago.
It has a scar through the middle because it broke in two when it plopped out of the pot. Yeah, I used a whole pot, couldn't find any other good sized container.
Truth be told, Jell-O is more fun to look at and to jiggle than to actually eat. It's basically sweet water with a jiggly consistency.
