This has been an odd day already… and it is only 10am! I guess that is because I woke up at 4am having to use the bathroom for the 5th time last night (hmm…. UTI you think?) and I just didn’t have any desire to go back to sleep. So I showered and headed to Krogers. They are in the middle of some serious construction there and boy oh boy was that place jumping at 5am! Thank goodness I knew exactly what I needed because I felt very much in the way. After that I headed to the gas station seeing it had super cheap gas in comparrison to everyone else. I purchased a donut while I was there and began chatting with the clerk who is planning on applying to law school shortly. We talked for a good long time before the sudden rush of early morning commuters began to show up. When I got home I watched some odd movie that was on, ate my donut, and fell asleep. 🙂

Tonight I plan to make a super supper for Brian and his roommate again. I have ingredients that I don’t want to let go to waste while I am gone. I am whipping up 4 cheese stuffed shells and a variety of vegetable side dishes. It’s gonna be a fresh and flavorful dinner!

And now time for some more vintage fun:

And now for some proof that although jell-o has printed some amazing recipes in the past, they have indeed gone wrong at times:

Cabbage Grapefruit Salad
1 package Lime Jell-o
3/4 tsp salt
1 C hot water
1 Tbsp lemon juice or vinegar
1 large orange
1 medium sized grapefruit
1 cup shredded cabbage
1 Tbsp thinly sliced scallions
Disolve Jell-o and salt in hot water. Add lemon juice. Section orange and grapefruit, reserving juice. Add water to this juice to make 1 Cup; then add to Jell-O mixture. Chill until slightly thickened. Dice orange and grapefruit sections; fold into Jell-O with cabbage and scallions. Turn into 1 1/2-quart ring mold. Chill unti irm. Unmold on salad greens. Serve with mayonaise. Makes 6 servings.

The picture makes this recipe look… well… appetizing… the headline says “Want to please even the fussiest member of your family” but I just don’t see myself tryin’ this one anytime soon.
