my journey thru widowhood

and how i am growing in this new life


I work in food service. I am the head cook in a juvenile detention center.

Before that I was the "best damned highschool lunchlady ever" at my oldest then highschool.

I was a floater that week I made Jello. I got my pot ready with the 5 gallons of hot water, no cold used takes too long to prep.  Got my 2 bags of blue raspberry jello from the store room.. Got my 4" pan ready plus a spatula to stir the jello with.

Things got really busy when I was ready to pour , I was needed up front by the cooks table & serving lines. I carefully poured my boiling water over top of the jello granules in the pan, stirred it until it dissolved, then rolled the cart into the walk -in.

No problems right? I went about running food to the lines, starting more in the steamers, doing dishes. By 2 p.m. I was ready to go home.

The next morning I was to scoop the jello into 4 oz. solo cups for desert that day. I went to the walk in to retrieve my creation~ WTF?!?!

I forgot the spatula in the pan & the jello hardened around it. We never laughed so hard & had so much fun with something like this.

I even made the Public Schools Food service Blooper reels for our banquet.

Here ya go have a laugh on me LOL
