|Colleen is in charge of the bizaare at St. Elizabeth's. She agrees to help bake pies for the honorary guest--Bishop O'Reilly. She calls for help but no one is "available". She takes on the challenge--Alone--only one catch--she can't cook!|
The phones are ringing off the hook in the kitchen of St. Elizabeth's. Colleen is alone because nobody wanted to help her with the bizarre. She is covered from head to toe with flour. She can't remember things very well anymore. Did she put the oven on and at what temperature? What is that recipe grandmother gave me for those wonderful blueberry pies? The pies are part of a fund raiser at the church bizarre tomorrow night. Bishop O'Reilly will be the honorary guest. This thought sends Colleen into a frenzy. She has to bake 150 pies by tomorrow night. Is it possible? She will soon find out. Grasping the flour with both arms, she lugs it over to her work station and takes out the measuring cup and measures out two cups of flour per pie crust, ice cold water, butter and of course the blueberries, but they come later, or do they? She tries to remember her grandmother's recipe for flaky crust, but in her panic her mind goes blank. Colleen attempts to pour some flour from the bag but too much comes out. She adds the water to compensate and now she has a big mess on her hands. Mixing with her arms, not a spoon, mind you, she attempts to blend the ingredients.The mixture gets a strange texture to it. Not at all like pie dough... Uh oh... "Jesus, Mary and Joseph! If you have a shred of pity in your heart for a poor fool, help me please! I can't cook!" She didn't see that right next to the flour bag was a bag of cement mix. Oops... No wonder her arms got cemented in the dough. Only 18 hours until someone discovers her baking errors. What will Bishop O'Reilly think? Ah, heck does Colleen feel like a dumbass now! She did have a great recipe for blueberry pie, but not to read the bag. Details! Details! I suppose it is time to become a Protestant. Tweet
