They're pretty, but...(#29)

Dr. Jill sends this along...

Monday - 

It's fun to cook for Steve. Today I made angel food cake. The recipe said beat 12 eggs separately. The neighbors were nice enough to loan me the extra bowls. 

Tuesday -

He wanted fruit salad for supper. The recipe said serve without dressing. So I didn't dress.  What a surprise when he 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 he asked for salad again I tried a new recipe. It said prepare ingredients; lay on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving. Steve asked me why I was rolling around  in the garden...I showed him the recipe instructions. 

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 -

He did the shopping today and brought home a chicken. He asked me to dress it for Sunday.  I don't have any clothes that fit it, and for some reason he keeps counting to ten. 

Sunday -

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. 


  1. Okay, kinda silly, but I LOL'ed it anyway. I swear I know this chick doing the cooking.

  2. I just had visions of the chicken in a tuxedo, 'dressed' for Sunday dinner!

  3. Yep, Staci. I know her, too.

    This is really clever!


Don't cuss nobody out, okay?
