Tasty Treats

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

French Fries:

french fries


hot dogs

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

Roast Beef

Take a little roast beef.   Put in 1 gallon of Wesson oil.   Cook in the oven at 8 degrees for 15 minutes.   Eat it.

A Egg

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.

French Toast

1 egg

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.



1 slice cheese




1 meat

Cook meat in oven.  Take it out.  Put it on the hamburgers

I hope you enjoyed this gourmet post brought to you by “Thompson’s Tasty Treats” (her teacher’s name) circa 1981!

Quick Hello

In my last post I said I was taking a little blog break and I’m still on break….but I wanted to check in and say “hello”.    This has been a hectic summer for me.   I’ve had quite a few health issues which started back in February.    It began with a Bakers cyst behind my left knee and I ended up with a severely torn meniscus.   I had surgery on June 10th and physical therapy after that.    During the time of my PT I developed a problem with my right foot which the doctor first thought was a stress fracture but apparently that’s not the case.   Right now we don’t know what the problem is.    In addition to that (!) I have “frozen shoulder”.     Good grief!   Now I’m going to PT for that and will go back to the doctor on Sept. 10th and maybe he’ll give me a shot.    I just don’t know what else can go wrong with me, hopefully nothing.    Do I dare mention that I have a bladder infection right now?   

I also mentioned that I discovered that the government stopped depositing my mom’s civil service retirement check.    Suffice it to say it took 2 weeks for me to get that straightened out….many  days before I could reach someone on the phone then on hold for 30 minutes….thankfully I got it straight and her monies are now back in her account.     When you’re on a fixed income like she is and you miss out on part of your income each month, it gets dicey real quick!

Lastly, yesterday I got word that a  friend of mine has passed away suddenly while vacationing in the Bahamas.    I just got a text that she had an aneurysm and was flown back to the States where she was declared brain dead.    I blogged about her house a few years ago here.     Everyone is in shock….she was only 62 years old!

The only good news I can report is that I ordered the yearling calf head from D├ęcor Steals and it arrived yesterday.    I have a gorgeous old frame I’m thinking about using on a kitchen wall and putting the yearling head in the middle with my boxwood wreath and surrounding the frame with white plates.   I also want to paint the wall with chalkboard paint so the plates and yearling head show up but with my shoulder situation I can’t paint right now.    Oh well….at least I got my yearling head which I’ve been stalking for some time now.

It seems like everyone has got Fall decorating on the brain.   I’m not quite there but I am ready for some cooler temps and FOOTBALL!    Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

Blog Break

I’m taking a little blog break…a lot of things going on that need my attention and I’m not able to do any projects or post inspiring (Rolling on the floor laughing) blog content.    There is a financial situation with my mom’s money that I’m trying to resolve and I’m also experiencing ADDITIONAL health issues!    I still get around to visiting some of my favorite bloggers and enjoy seeing all your talent.    Hope to be back soon!
