I called my mother the Queen of Jello. We had a different jello salad most everyday. She could mold jello in anything. To this day, I still have a fascination with jello. My mother would fuss at me because I would stick my finger in the jello to see if it was ready. I still get impatient waiting on my jello masterpiece to set up.
