Friday Flash 55 -- Bon Appétit from Auntie Gwen



Dad's aunt Gwen, a legally-blind recluse who rarely left her room at the nursing home, was coming for Christmas dinner, likely her last holiday.
.....
Dad escorted Gwen inside, giving us the look as she handed a basket to mom.

"These are goodies I saved from the Center. They're all made from scratch.* No ghastly preservatives!"

*FROM SCRATCH (adverb)
Meaning: From the beginning
Context example: he baked the torte from scratch

G-Man~ Moldilicious is a new word...a yucky one, but brand new for this holiday! Thanks and have a great weekend.

rosaria~ Pretty disgusting, eh? I'd better find a nicer image for people to see on Christmas! Hope yours is Merry.
