April Rain Song
Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
The rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night—
And I love the rain.
by Langston Hughes
The Good Samaritan is a familiar parable found in one of the gospels of the New Testament: The Gospel According to Luke (10:29-37)
Cook's notes: Pre-baking the crust prevents the crust from getting soggy. I used Pappy's Pie Crust 2 dough circles and rolled both out together on floured wax paper surface. Preheat oven @425 degrees.
After placing crust in quiche pan I crimped edges and placed two large strips of foil in the crust so foil hangs out over the edge and smoothed out foil inside the crust going all the the way around inside of pan. Bake crust for 6 minutes-remove foil and bake 4 minutes longer-let cool while making filling
