(Strip Number 321, Original Publication Date, 18 October 1982)
Panel 1: We start things off with John, who's entranced by the scent of Elly's cooking, asking her what she's making.
Panel 2: She tells him that she's got two pies and a roast in the over and a casserole in the microwave.
Panel 3: He tells her that it smells so wonderful, his mouth is watering. She says "Good."
Panel 4: Her telling him that it's not for them takes a lot of the wind out of his sails.
Summary: Tomorrow, she has to explain to him that she's doing this because people in Annie's situation don't have a lot of free time; it doesn't, of course, take owing to his brains being made of concrete but, hey, she tried.
