It’s fun to cook for Rusty. Today I baked him an angel food cake. The recipe said to beat 12 eggs separately. The neighbors were nice enough to loan me 11 extra bowls.
He wanted fruit salad for supper. The recipe said to serve the salad without dressing. So I didn’t get dressed .. What a surprise when he brought a friend home for supper!
A good day for rice. The recipe said to wash thoroughly before steaming the rice. It seemed kind of silly but I took a shower anyway. I can’t say it improved the rice any.
Today Rusty asked for salad again, so I tried a new recipe. It said to prepare ingredients; lay on a bed of lettuce one hour, then to serve raw. Rusty sure was surprised when he came into the kitchen, and asked why I was standing there naked, holding a bowl of lettuce salad! …. So I showed him the recipe instructions.
I found an easy recipe for cookies. It said to put the ingredients in a bowl and beat it … So I did. There must have been something wrong with this recipe. When I came back into the house, everything was the same as when I left.
Rusty did the shopping today, and brought home a chicken. He asked me to dress it for Sunday dinner, but I don’t have any clothes that small, so I went to the children’s shop and bought a cute little baby outfit. For some reason, he keeps counting to ten.
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. If I can talk him into buying a bigger oven, I would like to surprise him with a chocolate moose.
