This is for everyone out there who are kitchen challenged and don’t have a clue about cooking or food preparation. It’s called Cooking For Dummies!
Some people make fine chefs and can conjure up the most amazing meals, but others really struggle in the kitchen. I’m somewhere in the middle, but there are some who, believe it or not, struggle to boil an egg or make toast.
This is for all of those who really don’t have a clue. Hope you enjoy it.
It’s fun to cook for Robbie.
Today I made angel food cake.
The recipe said beat 12 eggs separately.
The neighbors were nice enough to loan me some extra bowls.
Robbie wanted fruit salad for supper.
The recipe said serve without dressing, so I didn’t dress.
What a surprise when Robbie brought a friend home for supper
I thought today would be 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.
Today Robbie asked for salad again, so I tried a new recipe.
It said prepare ingredients, then lay on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving.
Robbie came home and asked me why I was rolling around in the garden.
I found an easy recipe for cookies today.
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.
Robbie did the shopping today and brought home a chicken.
He asked me to dress it for Sunday.
I did’t have any clothes that fit it and for some reason Robbie kept counting to ten.
Robbie’s folks came over to dinner today.
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 Robbie.
If I can talk Robbie into buying a bigger oven, I would like to surprise him with a chocolate moose.
