12/19/2007 Entry: "Shelly, the scarf, and a quiche"

I need to throw out some props here. Shelly is a lady who attends our church with some regularity. On Saturday morning, Julia and I were ringing the bell for the Salvation Army. I knew it was going to be cold, so I really bundled up: long underwear, two pairs of socks, long sleeve shirt, sweater, hat (and I don't really like hats), and mittens. Well, it was only 11 degrees. Julia rang the bell with me about an hour, then had to give up. About 15 minutes later, Shelly came by. "Where's your scarf?" she asked. I explained that I really had dressed up, much more so than usual, but it was just much colder than I expected. We had a little chit chat, then she went into the Wal-Mart to shop. A few minutes later, she came out with a new scarf. "I thought your coat was blue," she said as she handed me a blue and gray scarf. "I really am a scarf person," she went on "and rarely am I without one when it's cold." Thank you Shelly! It really does make a big difference!

Supper tonight was a quiche. It happens to be one of my specialties. When I got home, Susan had laid out a recipe for me. It actually worked really well. I didn't have to "blind bake" the crust. The filling is easy to remember: 4 eggs, 1.75 cups milk. Then your flavor ingredients. Ta-dah! Everyone loved it; it's all gone!

Replies: 1 person has rocked the mic!

Merry Christmas Bill.
May the blessings of the season, follow you throught the year.
