About a month ago, one of the staff members at El Camino Gardens told me they were having a discussion with the residents trying to come up with some ideas to start a club. Ideas were not forthcoming (no surprise) even though the staff was doing their best to encourage conversation and ideas. Finally, someone spoke up - Mom - who said "Let's have a pie club."
This afternoon when I walked into the communal area, Priscilla told me that in 3 years of having cooking activities, for the first time, Mom participated and made a peach pie. It was still warm, and it was delicious.
