I simply got to tell this. My young ladies got me to make savory muffins just now. First time since things went south for me. I searched and searched for a recipe, got one and went to the kitchen. I went into a panic, but they just told me there is no turn around.
So first me and Nita argued whether I should first put butter in the pans or first make the dough. Right Nita won that round. Did it and thought it was not a nice job but I finished it. Then first mixed the dry ingredients with the meat, cheese and corn, then discovered that the mustard, salt and red pepper is also dry ingredients, but what the hell, I just put it in. Then mixed the wet stuff, got confused about the size of the eggs and if I should put one extra in. Good, mixed it together and spooned it into the muffin pans. The oven was already on.
Quite happy with myself, I sat down and started reading my messages on my phone. Next moment I realized I never looked what time I put the muffins into the oven.
Panic broke lose!!!! Nita said, don’t worry mum, just play it by eye, if it is brown, take it out. Lora, nahhh not to worry everything will be ok. I kept looking at my watch and I simply could not make out the time. Then I realized I must have pressed a button on my watch that changed it from pm/am and then tried to figure out how long it is in the oven.
Then Nita went to the kitchen to make us some coffee. I NEVER EVEN PUT THE MUFFINS IN THE OVEN. Everybody was laughing. It was so so funny. Then Nita put the muffins in the oven and set her timer. Now just for the results and the next batch. Going to make lots and lots of muffins.
Life with dementia can be fun too 🙂
Much love and kindness
