MONDAY: It's fun to cook for Tom. Today I made angel food
cake. The recipe said beat 12 eggs separately. The neighbors
were nice enough to loan me some extra bowls.
If I can talk Tom into buying a bigger oven, I would
like to surprise him with chocolate moose.
TUESDAY: Tom wanted fruit salad for supper. The recipe said
serve without dressing. So I didn't dress. What a surprise
when Tom brought a friend home for supper.
WEDNESDAY: A good day for rice. The recipe said wash thoroughly
before steaming the rice. It seemed kind of silly but I took
a bath anyway. I can't say it improved the rice any.
THURSDAY: Today Tom asked for salad again. I tried a new
recipe. It said prepare ingredients, lay on a bed of lettuce
one hour before serving. Tom asked me why I was rolling
around in the garden.
FRIDAY: 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. When I got back,
everything was the same as when I left.
SATURDAY: Tom did the shopping today and brought home a
chicken. He asked me to dress it for Sunday (oh boy).
For some reason Tom keeps counting to ten.
SUNDAY: 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.
GOOD NIGHT DEAR DIARY. This has been a very exciting
week. I am eager for tomorrow to come so I can try
out a new recipe on Tom.
