Everything but cookingPosted Wednesday, May 5, 2010, at 12:22 PM
You may have heard of the book by Robert Fulghum, "All I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten."
On his list includes:
Share everything, play fair, put things back where you found them, clean up your own mess, don't take things that aren't yours, say you're sorry when you hurt somebody, flush, when you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together.
Everything you need to know is there somewhere and can be applied to your adult life EXCEPT cooking.
As I was searching for items for Marissa's graduation I came across my the forgotten recipe books that they had each contributed to in kindergarten with their favorite recipes, written in their terms. The teachers spent time with each student and with a straight face (they deserve a medal for doing so) they listened carefully and wrote exactly how those little students would prepare their favorite foods.
The writing is so precious; but a warning, do not attempt to make these recipes!
They have to be shared; I hope you laugh as hard as we did.
A little bit of sugar
Brown stuff you make cookies with
A little water
Mix things in a bowl and stir them. Put it in a flat thing and spread out. Make arms and legs and some eyes then bake for 7 minutes at 78 degrees.
They are done when the oven dings and says they are done.
The gingerbread man will say, "Let me out." Don't let him get away. Close the door on him if he tries to get out.
Now you can eat him.
1 cup of sugar
3 cups of food coloring
6 cups of flour
10 cups of milk
Cook it all together for 20 minutes on warm. Then put it in a box and then put it in the store and then somebody buys it and then somebody eats it. And then they put milk in it and then you have cereal and milk.
4 hot dogs
5 hot dogs, too
10 hot dog buns
5 cups of mustard
6 cups of ketchup
To cook them put them on the stove to boil, because we have a new stove and it will boil good. Dump out the juice and put them in a bowl to cool off. Then eat them.
10 pieces of chicken
10 sesame seeds
Put sauce on the chicken and roll it in the sesame seeds is my guess. I've never really seen them do it. The best way to get sesame chicken it to go to the Chinese place and order it.
