Happy Mother's Day to all mothers reading...

Pondering: Why aren't any of the women I live with able to put clothes properly into the hamper? I mena, is it so much trouble to turn shirts and socks right side out before I wash them. Slackers.

Dr. Pepper Jello Attempt #2

I'm trying again to get this right. Here's today's version:

(2) cans Dr. Pepper
(1) 1/4 oz. envelopes of Knox gelatin

Pour 3/4 cups of Dr. Pepper into a glass measuring cup. The measuring cup should hold > 3 cups of fluid Empty gelatin into the cup and stir slighty. Set aside and let the gelatin 'bloom' for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, pour 1 & 3/4 cups of Dr. Pepper into a bowl and nuke in the microwave for 3 minutes until the Dr. Pepper is very hot but not boiling.

There should be about 1/2 a can of Dr. Pepper left in can. Begin drinking Dr. Pepper. It's refreshing after all this hard work.

Pour heated Dr. Pepper into 'blooming' mixture. Stir for about 5 minutes or until all gelatin is dissolved. Let mixture sit a few mintues while you get out 1/2 cup bowls. Pour mix into bowls. Place in fridge overnight.

Notice that I've increased the amount of soda pop and decreased the amount of gelatin.
