*Note: This gem is a gift that made it into my recipe box when I first set up housekeeping in the early ’70s. I trust you’ll enjoy and adopt as one of your favorites, too. Tip: It’s a great gift for any new bride!
*Take one large field,
half a dozen children,
two or three small dogs,
a pinch of brook and some pebbles.
Mix the children and dogs well; put them in the field, stirring constantly. Pour the brook over the pebbles; sprinkle the field with flowers, spread over all a deep blue sky and bake in the sun. When brown, set aside to cool in the bath tub.
