  1. Friends, I am cooking this recipe today, and because I have so many oranges, I am shredding peel and adding juice of an orange to marmelade. Because it contains liquid and will be cooked at a lower oven temperature of 325, I can make it to church and back with a little tin foil on top of the baking dish.

    Fruit infused with chicken is delicious, and I’m going to try it with raspberries. Kathleen, how is your sister doing? Mary Alice told me about her near death experience when I ran into her at the farmers market.

    Thank you for asking about my sister, Alicia, who is widowed and lives in Des Moines. She had been diagnosed with diverticulitis, an infection of the inside lining of the intestine. She didn’t know what was making her so sick on Monday of last week but (smart woman!) went to the emergency room where tests showed she had a ruptured colon and had become septic with massive infection. Thank goodness, she underwent successful surgery and is out of the ICU, responding well to antibiotics.

    Kathleen, I have heard that colonoscopy bags have greatly improved. How long before her colon is reattached?

    About three months, Mary Alice. This will be difficult when Alicia leaves the hospital, but she’s a tough cookie and is up to the task. Sometimes we feel very lucky to be alive, and that drives us.
