Just for a bit of a laugh to cheer up a wintry day. I need to get my hands on a copy of the new Blondes Cookbook. Here is an excerpt…
The Blondes Cookbook…
It’s fun to cook for Bob. Today I made Angel Food Cake. The recipe said beat 12 eggs separately. The neighbours were nice enough to loan me the 11 extra bowls I needed.
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.
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 at all.
Today he asked for salad again so I tried a new recipe. It said prepare ingredients; lay on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving. He asked me why I was rolling around in the garden before dinner.
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.
Bob 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 Bob keeps counting to ten.
I wanted to serve roast but all I had was mince but suddenly I had a flash of genius.. I put the mince in the oven but aha, set the controls for roast. It still came out mince, much to my disappointment.
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 Bob into buying a bigger oven, I would like to surprise him with a chocolate moose.
