Mike's Phonecakes
By KATHLEEN W. REDMAN
  

1     "Children, we are going to do something different today," Miss Dean said. "We have been learning how to measure liquids and solids. Today, you are going to write some recipes. They will be your own. We will try them at the party next week." She handed each child three blank cards.
 
2     "Think about what kind of food you would like to make," she said. "Then think about one dish. Write down the things you will need to make it." Miss Dean wrote "Ingredients" on the board.
 
3     "Next, think of the steps in making the dish. Write them down in order." She wrote "Instructions" on the board.
 
4     "Finally," she said, "when your recipe is finished, follow it to make your dish for the party next week."
 
5     Dale was excited. He loved to cook. He thought about party food. He would make the best party food ever! He started writing his recipes.
 
6     When Dale got home that afternoon, he told his mother about the party. He told her about the recipes. He showed her the recipe he wanted to make.
 
7     "Do you need any help?" she asked.
 
8     "No, I can do it myself," he said. "Will you get the ingredients for me?"
 
9     "I would be glad to do that," his mother said. "I will have them for you on Thursday. When you get home, you can start your cupcakes."
 
10     Next Thursday Dale hurried home from school. He was ready to make his recipe. He went in the kitchen and washed his hands. He got all the ingredients together. He put them on the counter by the microwave.
