Recipes, Photos And A Funny Video


Although Al is 58 years old he has the mind of an older child. I am constantly looking at ways to make his food more interesting.

The best way I get him to eat is make it appealing as if I am making if for a nine or ten-year old.

Today, I spent some time in the kitchen creating. I use my imagination, add here, change this or that, and hopefully I create some fun tasting foods that he will eat.

He has always been a big, big eater but with his illness there are plenty of days that he doesn’t want to eat and I force him by my creations or he will only eat part of what I fix.

Here is what I did today.

I took some graham cracker crumbs that I had in my cupboard. I tossed some butter in the microwave. Threw both of these into a 9×13 pan and stirred and patted. Next, I had the cheapest, generic brownie mix the store offers. I added the one egg, and the one-third cup of oil. Then I was to add two teaspoons of water but I held off on that for a moment.

I mixed to the egg and oil mixture, or should I say tossed, I don’t measure out the added items, chocolate chips, coconut, stirred and then added enough water to make it moist like cake mix. I poured this over the graham cracker mixture and baked at 350 degrees until it was done. Here is how it looks.

The next thing I did was make a batch of pancakes a head of time. Al is a pancake lover. I buy frozen ones, blueberry for him but I like the added touch that shows him I think he is special.

This is what I did.

I took  Hungry Jack pancake mix. The kind you only add water. I poured out half of a new box into a bowl. I sliced up two bananas, added chocolate chips and some coconut. Then I added enough water to my eye’s liking.

Here is how these turned out, and by the way, I had to sample one of these. They do not even require syrup they are so yummy.

    • Al likes ensure, chocolate, with chocolate ice-cream mixed in so it is more of a shake than anything. He drinks these when he isn’t feeling well. Al will lose up to 7 pounds in a week and then lose a few of them the next week. It is always a yo-yo syndrome with his weight. All together he has lost right at 50 pounds from being sick. I willl take care and make sure you do so also. We both have our plates full

      • Al never cared for sweets until he got to this stage of his illness. Now he wants sweets all the time. He really liked his pancakes this morning for breakfast. See both our guys had great breakfast. i do get excited over the little things I guess. But with death nearing I have to look outside the box
