Sunday evening, and I’ve been cooking all week! It's fun to cook for my husband Tom, though I think I still have some things to learn.
Monday Tom asked for salad, and I tried a new recipe. It said prepare ingredients, and lay on a bed of lettuce for one hour before serving. Tom asked me why I was rolling around in the garden.
Tuesday I made angel food cake. The recipe said to beat twelve eggs separately, and the neighbors were nice enough to loan me some extra bowls in order to do this.
Wednesday I decided to make a fruit salad for supper. The recipe said serve without dressing, so that’s what I did. What a surprise when Tom brought a friend home!
Thursday seemed like a good day for Chinese. The recipe on the rice packet said wash thoroughly before steaming. It seemed kind of silly, but I took a bath anyway. Can't say it improved the rice any.
Friday Tom's folks came to dinner. I wanted to serve roast, but all I had was hamburger. Suddenly I had a flash of genius! I put the hamburger in the oven and set the controls for roast. It still came out hamburger, much to my disappointment.
I found an easy recipe for cookies. It said put the ingredients in a bowl and beat it. There must have been something wrong with this recipe, though, because when I got back, everything was the same as when I left.
Tom did the shopping Saturday and brought home a chicken. He asked me to dress it for Sunday. I told him I don't have any clothes that would fit it. For some reason Tom keeps counting to ten.
Good Night Dear Diary. This has been a very exciting week! I am eager for tomorrow to come so I can try out another new recipe on Tom. If I can talk him into buying a bigger oven, I would like to surprise him with a chocolate mousse. On second thought, maybe I should wait a while. He is still grumbling about that marble cake I baked two weeks ago. Maybe I should have ground up the marbles.
