Dear Diary

Monday It's fun to cook for Joe. 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 Joe wanted fruit salad for supper. The recipe said serve without dressing. So I didn't dress. What a surprise when Joe 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 Joe asked for salad again I tried a new recipe. It said prepare ingredients; lay on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving. Joe asked me why I was rolling around in the garden. Shows what he knows about cooking.

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 Joe 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 Joe keeps counting to ten.

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


Never trust a skinny chef!
