Something Good to Eat

I thought this was something that many of you would find helpful. My favorite thing to make for my dad was pie. With his mouth being sore the crust was to hard for him to eat. I have started making him homemade custard pies without the crust. They bake perfect and come out in perfect slices. Since custard pies have a lot of eggs they are high in protein and calories. Here is a recipie for one I just made.

Carmel custrad

4 eggs
1 large(regular size) can evaporated milk
1 small 5 ounce can evaporated milk
1 cup brown sugar

Mix all of this together, pour in pie plate and bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes. Until knife in center comes out clean.

I have also made pumpkin, and sweet potato pie with no crust.

As for an update on my dad. He should start his treatment on Friday. He found out his Chemo will be once a week for 2 hours and then the 35 rad treatments.

Again, thank you all for the information and support.

Love ya already

Thanks for the recipe. I also have a difficult time eating any type of crust because of my dry mouth condition. I may add vanilla. It looks simple and should make for a good dessert.

Wish your dad the very best.
