The custard mystery has been solved!
I have my recipe, Mom’s recipe, and a clipping in her cookbook from 1971 that reads identical to both our cards. No, it does not require scalded milk. I have always made it in a 1-1/2 qt. casserole baking dish. The newspaper clipping says exactly what I have added to my card —- IF using a casserole, increase baking time to 1-1/2 hrs. I have a thermometer in my oven and it reads quite close to true, a little less than what the oven is set at so my problem with is the container I’m baking in. Aren’t we all glad that big mystery is solved!
My friend Gloria sent me a picture of her table mat in Christmas fabrics. Remember this?
I thought I should add the pattern again just in case you find a little time to make one- say, in red and white for Christmas.
Kathy in western New York said it best. She said, “the picture of the truck speaks to me of how the person chooses to live their life with no regard for others by being self centered and not abiding by the rules.” Amen to that – I couldn’t have said it better!
Here’s a picture just from this morning at the store.
This isn’t even a parking place – it’s next to the handicap spot but here’s two pickups parked there!
Here’s a series of pictures taken in the barn with heat lamps and heated water buckets.

Mama and Darla’s little room where they also sleep in the boxes under the heat bulb. Reedo has never returned and Danielle also disappeared this fall. I have sent their pictures to all my neighbors but nobody recognized them. Makes me so sad.

And this is a sad day. Meet Pretty Kitty who came here over 12 years ago as a middle aged cat about 6+ years old who belonged to Becky’s elderly neighbors, Helen and Donella. I took Pretty in when they could no longer care for her and she’s been in declining health for several years. Today I feel she looking at me with unseeing eyes that say, “Let me go to the Rainbow Bridge to be with Helen and Donella.” And so that is what I’m going to do.
We’ve had a good run, Pretty! God speed! I’ll see you again when I get to Heaven.
