Recently while cleaning out some dresser drawers in my daughter’s old room (now guest room) I found a “recipe book” her pre-K class put together. This was a group of 5 year olds. I had such a laugh reading some of these recipes that I thought I’d share some of them with you…you know, in case you might want to make some of these “recipes” for your family! I have copied them (spelling and all) exactly how they were written all those years ago.
1. 2 cups oil
2. A big chicken
3. Kill the chicken
4. Get a pan
5. Put a little oil in the pan
6. Put the chicken in the pan
7. Set the temperature on 5 or 6 and cook it for 1 hour
6. Then eat it
1. Put grease in the big black bowl with the big handle
2. Put it over the backboard
3. Take a big stick and put the french fries in the bowl
4. When it’s all cooked you have to put it in a big round circle with a paper towel under it
5. Put french fries in the sink
6. Put them in the bowl and then they’re ready
Take a little roast beef. Put in 1 gallon of Wesson oil. Cook in the oven at 8 degrees for 15 minutes. Eat it.
2 lbs. milk
3 lbs. flour
4 lbs. sugar
First pour milk into a bowl. Add 3 lbs. of flour. Put in 4 lbs. sugar. Then put in a little more milk. Put it on the stove and cook it for 4 minutes. Eat it.
3 cups milk
2 loaves bread
Dip the bread into the milk and eggs. Cook it in a frying pan for 2 seconds. Eat 2 french toasts.
Pour 2 inches of hot water into a pan. Peel 4 potatoes. Peel 5 tomatoes. Put these on top of the oven and let them cook. Put 2 inches of salt and pepper on them. Cook them for 12 seconds. Put in bowls and drink it.
AND FINALLY MY DAUGHTER’S RECIPE:
1 slice cheese
Cook meat in oven. Take it out. Put it on the hamburgers
