My mother was recently sorting through some old boxes when she came across a letter dated July 12, 1970. It was addressed to my mom and was penned by her grandmother, my great grandmother. The contents of the letter contain a recipe for “Preserving Children,” which was published in the July 11, 1970 issue of a local publication. As the promise of warmer weather and longer days draws near, I adore the whimsical advice in this delightful recipe. I think you will too!
A Recipe for Preserving Children
1 large grassy field
Narrow strip of brook with pebbles
Deep blue sky
Mix the children with the dogs and empty into the field, stirring constantly. Sprinkle the field with the flowers; pour the brook gently over the pebbles. Cover all with a deep blue sky and bake in the hot sun. When the children are well browned, they may be removed. The children will then be just right for setting away to cool in the tub.
Happy Friday, friends! I hope you have a richly blessed weekend.
