1 Week after “Yes, I Do”

Monday:

Now home from honeymoon and settled in our new home.
It’s fun to cook for Emmy. Today I made an angel food cake and the recipe said, “Beat 12 eggs separately.”

Well, I didn’t have enough bowls to do that, so I had to borrow 12 bowls to beat the eggs in. The cake turned out fine though.

Tuesday:

We wanted a fruit salad for supper. The recipe said, “Serve without dressing.”

So I didn’t dress. But Emmy happened to bring a friend home for supper that night. They both looked so startled when I served them, I think it was the salad.

Wednesday:

I decided to serve rice and found a recipe that said, `Wash thoroughly before steaming the rice.”

So I heated some water and took a bath before steaming the rice. Sounded kind of silly in the middle of the day.

I can’t say it improved the rice anyhow.

Thursday:

Today Emmy asked for salad again. I tried a new recipe. It said, “Prepare ingredients, and then toss on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving.”

I hunted all over the place for a garden and when I got one, I tossed my salad into the bed of lettuce and stood over there for over one hour so the dog would not take it.

Emmy came over and asked if I felt all right. I wonder why? He must be stressed at work; I’ll try to be supportive.

Friday:

Today I found an easy recipe for cookies. It said, “Put all ingredients in a bowl and beat it.”

Beat it I did, to my dad’s place. There must have been something wrong with the recipe, because when I came back home again; it looked the same as when I left it.

Saturday:

Emmy went shopping today and brought home a chicken. He asked me to dress it for Sunday.

Sunday:

I’m sure I don’t know how hens dress for Sunday. I never noticed back on the farm, but I found an old doll dress and its little cute shoes. I thought the hen looked cute. When Emmy saw it, he started counting to ten. Either he was stressed because of his work, or he wanted the chicken to dance.

When I asked him what was wrong he started crying and shouting out, “Why me? Why me?”
