I'm thinking I could do that with a schmear of cream cheese on the toast in lieu of the feta.....

love the combo of lemon juice, honey & onions with the sweet fruit. Thanks!

For the first time in my life, I am making shepherds' pie.  I thought all the time that it must be a complicated dish.  Then I asked MS. google, and there's not much to it.  Some of it will go to my son's inlaws, some will go with me tomorrow, going on another mission. 

Hubby's aunt (92) has had a heart attack is in hospital, and will have to be placed either in a nursing home or an assisted living situation.  I vote for nursing home, but her two sons have the vote.  Problem is that one son lives 3000 miles away, the other 300.  If she can be placed near me, at least I can go and visit.  Son from BC is with her, and starting to pack up her apartment.  I am going there tomorrow to help.

That is a hard decision. Is she able to walk unassisted? Does she have most of her marbles? If she can't walk without someone helping her, then prolly the nursing home. If she is forgetful and wanders off or (heaven forbid) drives, then maybe an assisted living place that has security that won't let her wander off.
I live a couple of miles away from a senior living city called Laguna Woods. I periodically read about someone who drives off and never comes back and is either found dead in their car or they are found 500 miles away. Another man wandered out of an Alzheimer's assisted living facility 15 years ago and they never found him. You might suggest that the woman be assessed by a professional to help them determine what is the best option.

Oh, absolutely she will be assessed.  Although she is sometimes forgetful, she has pretty well all her marbles, and is looking forward to moving back to this area (Niagara) where she spent most of her adult life.  

The professional assessor from Community Care Access Corporation (CCAC) makes the decision/ruling whether she is eligible to go into a home which is government funded.  If the assessor finds that she needs that type of accommodation, then she is assigned possibly a priority case and goes to a facility to be close to family.  Cost of a shared room (one more person) is about $1750./month.  Private room is about $2300./ month.  If her pension income is not enough to cover, the Ministry of Health and Long Term care kicks in the balance.  Her pensions will cover.  If the assessor feels that she can manage in a private facility, she has to pay everything which will be over $4,000/month.  

I feel that she would be better off in a nursing home.  We are very lucky here in Ontario, that assets are not considered when someone goes into a nursing home, only income.  When my husband went into care, I could have applied to have partial funding of his care, his pensions were not quite enough, but we had savings which were used.

Oh, that's OK......I've got a tough skin to deflect that nasty tasting, icky, yucky stuff.

LOL

And Barb is right ~ I subject you ALL to my kale obsession and love of all things green and bitter.

Tit for Tat as Mom use to say.

Hahahahahahaha!

 The amount that I spent does not cover the total cost of the home.  The government kicks in about another $2,000/month for anyone needing the accommodation.  Then basically everything is covered, all personal care, food, most medications.  I had shingles while he was in there, and realizing how painful it can be (I had a mild case) I had the nurse in the home give him the shot for the shingles also.  That was $175. which was not covered.  His wheelchair was $5,000 of which I only had to pay 25%.  We don't have to lose everything before the gov't kicks in some help.  When he died I donated the chair to a rehab hospital.

Seems like it is rigged here in the US that at the end of life, the doctors, hospitals and nursing homes wipe you out so there is nothing left for your heirs before the govt. starts helping out.

Had 50/50 M&M burgers tonight.
50% grated porobella mushroom and 50% ground beef. Slice of Swiss on top melted and stringy stretchy. I had one plain, and one with the Greek style chili sauce and onions.

I started them cooking on the grill, but when e got a tremendous storm, I had to go rescue them, and finish them on the stove top. At least one side was with grill marks.
The mushrooms made the burgers nice and moist, even well done. One could hardly tell there was mushrooms in the burgers. The burgers held together too!!....

Dee zert... I had a Dunkin Doughnut Boston Cream with chocolate coating. There are three more, and two sugar sticks with raspberry filling for Tina. Believe me. I am surely thinking of one more for snack before bed time.

Today is Cassie's birthday. Normally we'd have a party with a cake but since she isn't here, we had a cake without the party. I grilled some rib eye steaks and we had it with a broccoli salad and left over bulgur salad. The potato is called a blooming potato. It's cut up so when it's baked, it is crispy on top and pulls apart like a blooming onion. The cake is a white cake with lemon curd in the middle, cream cheese icing and sugared peaches on the side.

Guess I missed something.................... Cassie is not there any more? Sorry to hear that.  

Yes, the thing about care of the elderly/old is the same in Germany.  When the parents run out of money, they go after the children too.  I went through that 2 years ago with my mother-in-law's care there.

They don't go after the children here. but you must spend all of the parents savings before the govt. starts paying for a nursing home.

Yes Cassie and Charlie are divorced.
