The New Bride's Cookbook

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.

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. If I can talk Tom into buying a
bigger oven, I would like to surprise him with
chocolate moose.
