A surprise was delivered today.

“Erma Fiste (known as Erma Bombeck) was born in Bellbrook, Ohio, to a working-class family, and was raised in Dayton. She became very famous when she wrote, ‘If Life Is a Bowl of Cherries What Am I Doing in the Pits?’ The hilarious #1 New York Times bestseller was Erma Bombeck’s take on marriage and family life is “fun from cover to cover”.”

A box of sweet Georgia peaches was delivered on my front porch. Thank you Kristin and Rick.
What a happy and unexpected (and juicy) surprise. The jewels of a summer harvest at Pearson Farm in Georgia arrived in Pittsburgh. Perfection! The scent as the box was opened was wonderful and the taste even better. Delicious!
My mother (from Illinois) always made a Christmas JELL-O with the juice of a fresh lemon added. I made it on Christmas Eve but forgot it on Christmas Day and it’s still in the fridge. Maybe we’ll eat some tomorrow. Her other concoction was lemon jello with crushed pineapple and shredded carrots with fresh lemon a pinch of salt. Oh and one made with the little packet of plain gelatin, fresh limes’ juice and sliced green grapes. My childhood memories of JELL-O(click for history as it all started in 1897) my sense is that it’s just not as popular anymore.
So JELL-O, yes or no?

My sister gave me this cookbook
Perhaps your remember my Rainbow JELL-O post which was more of an art project.
