I hope most of the readers are aware of some famous and lovable cartoon characters like Santa,Banta,Santo ( Santa’s better half) and Banto ( Banta’s equally better half ) etc.
I believe that there are two categories of women.One category of women is who don’t know how to cook but will cook.The other of course is the category: who know how to cook but won’t ever cook !
Read this piece and decide for yourself as to which category our Santo belongs !
Long ago I had read an article about a dumb blonde (incidentally, all blondes are said to be dumb !) ( Dumb-for the un-iniated,means five feet barometer with vacuum at the top,and not those who can’t speak !) The blonde always tried to cook but she was always a natural disaster.
The same analogy has been punjabi-cised here ( if I can use that word !)
Here is what Santo scribbled in her diary (which was stealthily discovered from her kitchen cabinet by my friendly neighbourhood detective who has a fine nose for punjabi kitchen flavours as well as good detecting abilities !)
It’s fun to cook for Santa. Today I made an angel cake. The recipe said beat 12 eggs separately. The neighbours-Channo,Shanno,Jeeto and Preeto-all were kind enough to loan me some extra bowls.
Santa wanted a fruit salad for supper. The recipe said serve without dressing. So I didn’t dress. What a surprise you know, when Santa brought Banta,a friend of his,home for supper !!
A good day for a rice dish. The recipe said wash thoroughly before steaming the rice. It seemed a bit silly but,I took a leisurely bath. I can’t say it improved the rice to any extent.
Today Santa asked for vegetable salad.I tried a new recipe today. It said prepare ingredients, then toss on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving.I followed the recipe but when Santa came home a bit early he caught me in the act of tossing.That is what led Santa asking me why I was rolling around in the garden !.
I found an easy recipe for cookies. It said put all ingredients in 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.
Santa did the shopping today and brought home a chicken. He asked me to dress it for Sunday.For some reason Santa keeps counting to ten.
Santa’s folks were coming to dinner. I wanted to serve a roast. All I could find was a burger. Suddenly I had a flash of genius. I put the burger in the oven and set the controls for roast. It still came out a burger, 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 Santa. If we could just get a bigger oven, I would like to surprise him with a Chocolate Moose.See you next week same place same time.Happy cooking till then !
Dear Sir, I had the loudest laugh at 3.45 am reading this diary, can’t stop grinning at the thought of it. Thoroughly enjoyed. Warmest regards.
