1/2 cup water 1 cup heavy cream 1/8 tsp. almond extract 3/4 cup sugar
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
10 oz. package frozen raspberries
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
9 inch pie crust (baked and cooled)
Beat the cream and almond extract until stiff peak forms. Then put the sugar, gelatin, and water in a saucepan, over medium heat, until everything dissolves. Remove that from the heat, then put the berries and lemonjuice into it; stir until mixture thickens. Fold the whipped cream that was first made into the berry mixture (*Note: Do the stirring gently for fluffiness and fruit intactness) and spread in the pie crust. Finally, put it to set in the refrigerator (few hours or overnight).
For the first two weeks I didn’t leave my room very much. I tried to go out to the social activities in the lounge but not many other women were there. Sometimes I went to watch TV in the common room or check my email but no one else ever seemed to be around. I mostly went out of my room to just have tests done. About two weeks into my stay, two other women staying in antenatal came into my room wondering if I wanted to avoid another Salisbury steak Wednesday, and we could order a pizza instead. I was hesitant at first; after all, shouldn’t I just stay in my depressed little bubble? However, Wednesday’s hospital meal really was the worst and I made the choice to join them, and that was the best decision I ever made. There were about eight of us who decided to do the meal together, and it was the start of some amazing friendships. To this day (five years later) a group of us still get together several times a year and we always celebrate the babies’ birthdays together. Those who choose not to come out, or are unable due to distance, are still connected on social media. Now I am thankful for how it all turned out.
