WITH BETTINA'S BEST RECIPES
BY LOUISE BENNETT WEAVER AND HELEN COWLES LECRON
_No, you cannot live on kisses,
Though the honeymoon is sweet,
Harken, brides, a true word this is,--
Even lovers have to eat._
HOME AT LAST
"HOME at last!" sighed Bettina happily as the hot and dusty travelers
left the train.
"Why that contented sigh?" asked Bob. "Because our wedding trip is over?
Well, anyhow, Bettina, it's after five. Shall we have dinner at the
"Hotel? Why, Bob! with our house and our dishes and our silver just
waiting for us? I'm ashamed of you! We'll take the first car for home--a
street-car, not a taxi! Our extravagant days are over, and the time has
come to show you that Bettina knows how to keep house. You think that
you love me now, Bobby, but just wait till you sit down to a real
strawberry shortcake made by a real cook in a real home!"
