Jello makes me smile.
I have fond memories of making red jello with Mommy. It’s one of the few things I remember doing in my early childhood spent in the U.S. before moving to Japan. I so vividly remember how the pink powder turned a startling crimson red when pouring in the boiling hot water; how I snuck in a few good licks of that pink powder right out of the packaging (pure yum!); how it was oddly soothing to stir the wooden spoon around in the red mixture, making swirls and swishes, smelling the heavenly scent of artificial cherry.
I decided to revisit this memory recently. And yes, it was just as good as I remembered it! :)
