Just call me Mom. I’m working at a group home in Tillsonburg. This is my 2nd weekend and only 4 people around (7 residents in total). I arrived this morning about 7 am so they got cold cereal and toast for breakfast, but I did make my favourite bannana crunch muffins in time for morning break! Only two for lunch so I made toasted western sandwiches. Tonight for supper I’m making a home-made chicken pot pie with biscuits. The recipe is from the Barefoot Contessa recipe book and I made it once before for my sister Rosemary, her husband and my Dad and it was really good – especially the biscuits!
All this cooking is reminding me of when I used to cook for the harvest gang on our tobacco farm. At this place they get 2 additional snacks so I’ve got to come up with more ideas. Not only am I the cook, but I have to stay overnight at the house – I hope the bed is comfortable. The residents are very nice and friendly and they like my cooking. Last weekend I made them chicken paprikash with rice and a pear crisp and they loved it. Hey maybe I’ve found my new niche.
