***** “Do WE…LOOK READY?”******
“STOP the ACTION – HOW can we make something – when Eleanor does not have her apron???” “ON?”
“Do you think that we made anything – this day that we are – all – dressed in our best – and without a big squabble – we all decided on some special spot to stand – and look like we – were going to do something – exciting and important?”
Take a look at the photo – the two tables are set for eight (8) to sit down and drink a glass of milk. Well – what about the other two in our class of ten girls – two (2) of us will get to stand – or just be the “servers” – as we are all ‘used to serving’ – we have been doing that – for years – so what is – NEW?
After, this photo was taken – we did not have anything special to do – so a few of us did stay there in this kitchen – that was in the basement part of the new “GYM” – and no sense to go back to the “HOME” part of the Orphanage – as there was nothing special for us to be doing – now that we were done with the “PHOTO” set-up – and as you can see some of the “PROPS” were still there – to make this photo really look like we were actually learning to cook?
So, one of the girls poured some of that milk in a bowl and someone else cracked a couple of those nice eggs into the milk and started stirring. Well, without even a half of an idea, of what we could have made – some sugar was added and then a little of the different spices – and we are asking – “WHAT can we do with this?”
Well, there I am with a “COOK-BOOK” in hand – “did I even think to really check out the cook-book – what could we make, just for FUN – using the ingredients – and if necessary – send someone to the bakery for a few more things to actually make something?”
I only thought about this a couple of weeks ago, (only some sixty years – too late) – when, I was making some “FRENCH TOAST” – “All that – we needed then, was some of the “HOME-MADE” bread from the BAKERY – and then, we could have had something really good to eat – that is the few of us girls – that were just hanging out?”
“This is what I call, “A Day Late and a dollar short” – if you get my drift?”
