I have been using this site for 8 years. I have posted a few recipes but this is my first blog entry...here. I do have another - Brig's Big Blog - with FEW entries. This one is dedicated to all things food. I teach high school Food and Nutrition.
So, I have a little experience. 28 years of teaching teens how to cook.
This summer I am having a new experience. I am back at home with my parents - most of the time- helping Dad care for Mother who has had cancer for 3 years and is probably in the last months of her life. Now, I do not want to shortchange any miracles
God may have planned but, short of one, we are looking at a short time.
Cooking something that she will enjoy eating is a challenge. The chemo did a number on her tastebuds so nothing much tastes good to her. Her standby favorites, like peanut butter, are noelk get. The appetite stimulant makes her hungry. The other
medications, and progression of the disease, are making communication sketchy sometimes and making her sleep the rest of the time. They have also dealt havoc with her memory and recall. Therefore, when she wakes up she is so hungry that she wants to eat
RIGHT AWAY but she can't always tell you what she wants. If she does tell you, it does not always come out as what she really wants. So...
From Allrecipes I have recently prepared Miss Betty's Super Quick Dinner Rolls. Mother said they were good. Daddy liked them also. Very easy to make out of ingredients readily available, just flour, milk and mayo. Just a simple, plain roll but
easy and good when you need something quick. I also made a Mandarin Orange Salad that has been enjoyed for many meals. It made a lot for just the three of us. I will post that recipe soon. Until then,
Eat well and be happy.
