Recipe to Preserve Children's Lives

We've reached the end of the recipes in grandma's handwritten notebook. I'm now looking at some of the recipe booklets that she had that date to the late 1800's and will make a decision soon about putting up some of those recipes soon. In the meantime, I found this recipe in a 1929 Rawleigh's cook book and thought it quite cute.

Recipe to Preserve Children's Lives

Take one large, grassy field, one-half dozen children, two or three small dogs, a pinch of brook and some pebbles. Mix the children and dogs well together and 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 hot sun. When brown, remove and set to cool in a bathtub.
