Subject: Lena's Cookbook Diary
Monday: It's fun to cook for Ole. 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: Ole wanted fruit salad for supper. The recipe said serve
without dressing. So I didn't dress. What a surprise when Ole 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 Ole asked for salad again I tried a new recipe. It said
prepare ingredients; lay on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving. Ole
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: Ole did the shopping today and brought home a chicken. He
asked me to dress it for Sunday (oh boy). For some reason Ole keeps
counting to ten.
Sunday: Some of Ole's friends 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 Ole. If I can talk Ole
into buying a bigger oven, I would like to surprise him with chocolate
