My Great-Great Grandmother Williams, whom I only met once (that I know of) left the family this wonderful book of recipes that she had collected over her lifetime, a lot of them from the depression era. It is yellow and tattered over the years but I have come to use many family recipes from it. Some a little more interesting than others, and some I would be a little scared to try out.
This recipe is once that I would love to be able to create, unfortunately I don’t have some of the ingredients. And I don’t foresee 10 kids in my future anytime soon!
“How to Raise Children”
- 1 Large Grassy Field
- 10 Children
- 2-3 Small Dogs
- A Pinch of Brook
- Some Pebbles
- Some Flowers
Mix children & dogs together & put in the grassy field, stirring constantly. Pour the brook over the pebbles. Sprinkle the field with flowers. Spread over all, a deep blue sky and bake in a hot sun. When brown, remove & set to cool in a bathtub. Serves all.
Just a little recipe for the fellow mothers out there. Enjoy and have a great week! ❤
