Now home from our honeymoon and settled in our new home.
It's fun to cook for Bill. Today I made an angel food cake
and the recipe said, "beat 12 eggs separately."
Well, I only had four bowls, so I had to borrow eight more
from the neighbors to beat the eggs in, but the cake turned
Tuesday: I thought I'd surprise Bill with a fruit salad
for supper. The recipe said "serve without dressing".
Bill happened to bring a friend home for supper, and did
they ever look surprised when I served that 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. I can't say it improved the rice any.
Thursday: Today Bill asked for salad again. I tried a new
recipe. It said, "prepare ingredients, then toss on
a bed of lettuce one hour before serving." I went next
door to my Mom's garden and tossed my salad into the bed
of lettuce and stood over there one hour so the dog would
not take it. Bill 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." 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: Bill went shopping today and brought home a chicken.
He asked me to dress it for dinner. I sure don't know how
chickens dress for dinner, but I found an old scarf and
made a cute little pair of pants for it! I thought it looked
darling! When Bill saw it he made a funny strangling sound
and then counted very slowly to 10!
Sunday: Today Bill's folks came to dinner. I wanted to
serve roast, but all we had in the fridge was hamburger.
So I put the hamburger in my new oven and set the control
for "roast". The oven must not be working right
because it still came out hamburger!
Monday: I was going to bake bread today. The recipe said,
"mix well and knead well. Then stand in a warm place
until double in bulk." I just won't bake bread if I
have to double in bulk!
