      FYI - in case anyone was wondering the source of this "recipe" it comes from the "Feed Me I"m Yours" cookbook.

      Ah yes, I remember it well! (My daughter had this same recipe)<br/><br/>Does anyone have any other humorus or clever 'recipes' to share? Here's one I like<br/><br/>PRESERVING YOUR CHILDREN<br/>1 large grassy field Pinch of brook and some<br/>1/2 dozen children pebbles<br/>2 or 3 small dogs<br/><br/>Mix children and dogs well together. Put them in the field, stirring constantly. Pour the pebbles over the book. Sprinkle the field with flowers. Spread over all a deep blue sky and bake in the sun. When thoroughly brown, remove and set away to cool in the bathtub.
