The First Evangelical Lutheran Church prekindergarten kids were asked by their teachers, Viia Erwin and Helen Jacobs, what their favorite foods were and how to prepare them. All of the recipes were combined in a cookbook and presented to the mothers as a Mother's Day gift.
Here are a few of the most interesting. Betty Crocker, watch out!
Joshua O'Keefe's recipe for pancakes includes one egg, one teaspoon of milk, one cup of flour and three bottles of syrup. Put everything except the syrup in a bowl at the same time. Beat for a long time (five hours). Then cook on a stove for five minutes. Put the pancake on a plate, pour on three bottles of syrup and eat. Then go buy more syrup.
Brandon Radzilowski's recipe for pizza is 15 gummy worms (the good kind), 15 cups of cheese (a lot), 16 cups of pepperoni, 100 pounds of pizza dough, 1,000 bottles of pizza sauce and one little pan. Put the pizza sauce in a pan. Add the cheese. Then put all the dough on top. Put the pepperoni on top of the dough. Top with gummy worms. Bake in a real hot oven for a long, long, long time (5 minutes). Take out of oven and let cool, then eat.
Rachel Davis has a recipe for Teddy Bear Soup: 1,000 gallons of water, 50 feet of meat (don't cut it up), 50 gallons of chicken, 50 feet of tall corn, 50 feet of tall beans, 50 pounds of salt, 50 pounds of Teddy Bear crackers. Don't cut anything up; just put everything except crackers in a big pot and cook in the oven for 50 hours at 50 degrees. Then take the soup out of the oven and Rachel will eat it all up with the teddy bear crackers.
What would a meal like that be without dessert? Brian Clark has a cookie recipe that goes like this: eight chocolate chips, two cups of water, one egg, two cups of salt, three cups of flour, two cups of sugar. Mix everything together in a little bowl for nine hours. Put the whole bowl in the oven. Turn the oven on 8 degrees and bake for three days. Take out of the oven, put icing on top and eat.
And last but not least, everyone's favorite: Banana Ice Cream by Melanie Johns. Five bananas, five potatoes, two eggs, 10 bottles of milk, 100 cups of sugar, one stick of butter. Mix everything up in one big bowl. Keep mixing until you are really tired. Then cook it on the stove for two minutes. Take the bowl off the stove and put it in the refrigerator. Go to bed. Don't eat the ice cream. Save it for Melanie.
