CXXVIII - To make hotch potch of "monege". Take eggs beaten a lot well and a little salt; take as much eggs as you want and with this flowers of flour (wheat flour) that you want make the said, or paste with these beaten eggs without other water. If you want of honey for each 10 eggs you want a good "chosselier" (no translation, another unknown measure) of honey, if you want with sugar for each ten eggs you want an ounce of sugar. They should be very tame and made immediately and have in mind that they need to be cooked immediately, because take note that neither wind nor sun (touch them) that sooner they spoil. They should be cooked in a pan that is not being smoked, thus you make them cook like that and make them and guard the earth that does not become thus, make them well clean.
