Creating Frankenstein Breakfast Casserole

This morning I took a little of this and a little of that and created what I call Frankenstein.  There is a lot of things I will do different next time, but I wouldn’t know if I hadn’t put this dish together the way I did.

I was curious and wondered, “What if…?” I combined what I do for bread pudding with a souffle recipe. We also had some stovetop apple pie left and I added it in the middle.  I waffled on when to put the crumb topping.  I put it in the middle but think the dish would look nicer with it on top.

The souffle part didn’t rise.  But the pan isn’t right, will need to figure out what I want to do to correct  that.

Almost wish I had made apple turnovers, otherwise known as hand-pies.  It would have been fun to harvest with one hand and eat with the other.

Too Depressed or Not Depressed Enough

Hospice was scheduled to come the morning that Gpa died.  I called them to see if they wanted to come out anyway.

No, call 9-1-1, but if you need the bereavement services, be sure to call back.

I’m remembering that conversation now.  And wondering if I should call.

But I would have to find the number.  I don’t even remember which company I told the doctor.  I guess I can ask the doctor.

But I’m either too depressed or not depressed enough to bother.

I really think I’m fine.  I don’t feel a need to talk to a bunch of strangers about what I’m going through.  Especially as I have family and friends who have shared the last year with Gpa and I.

These are the people who I want to share what I remember with.   And I do.

We have been remembering all kinds of great things about Gpa.  And helping me figure out what I’m going to do next.  And in the mean time, I’m still working in the garden and helping harvest for the food pantry.  The first Tuesday in April, I started teaching juggling again.  And tomorrow will be the first Crime Watch meeting since I took a break.

I don’t think I’ll bother with finding the number.  But it was nice of them to offer.
