“I woke up late and had to be at a Christmas brunch at 10:00. Since I was supposed to bring something to share, I "scrambled" to throw something together. As it was, I was about 30 minutes late, however, my casserole was devoured and the recipe requested before Christmas so some could make it Christmas morning. I went ahead and made another one for my family this morning. So upon request. . .”
