Monday: Now home from honeymoon and settled in our new house. It’s fun to cook for Bob.
Today I made an angel food cake and the recipe said, “Beat 12 eggs separately.”
Well... I didn’t have enough bowls to do that, so I had to borrow bowls to beat the eggs
in. The cake turned out fine.
Tuesday: We wanted a fruit salad for supper. The recipe said, “Serve without
dressing.” So I didn’t dress. But... Bob happened to bring a friend home for supper.
Did they ever look startled when I served the salad.
Wednesday: I decided to serve rice and found a recipe which said, “Wash thoroughly
before steaming the rice.” So... I heated some water and took a bath before steaming
the rice. Sounded kinda silly in the middle of the week, and I can’t say it improved the
Thursday: Today Bob asked for a salad again. I tried a new recipe. It said, “Prepare
ingredients, then toss on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving.” Well... I hunted
all over the garden by my Mom’s, and I tossed my salad into the lettuce bed, and stood
over there one hour (so the dog would not take it). Bob came over and asked if I felt all
right. I wonder why?
Friday: Today I found an easy recipe for cookies. It said, “Put all ingredients in a
bowl and beat it.” Well... beat it I did, right over to my Mom’s house. There must
have been something wrong with the recipe, because when I came back home again, it looked
the same as when I left it.
Saturday: Bob went shopping today and brought home a chicken. He asked me to dress it for
Sunday. I’m sure I don ’t know how chickens dress for Sunday, ’cause I never noticed back
on the farm. But I found a doll dress and some cute little shoes. I thought the chicken
looked really lovely. When Bob saw it, I wondered why he counted to ten.
Sunday: Today Bob’s folks came to dinner. I wanted to serve roast, but all we had in the
icebox was hamburger. So I put it in the oven, and set the controls for roast... must be
the oven, because it still came out hamburger.
Have a Great Week!
