Happy April Fools Day - well almost!
Did you grow up in a household that played pranks on April 1st? Well, I did and my mom was the mastermind of them all. We teamed up against my three older brothers and made a day of it.
We short-sheeted the beds, put sugar in the salt shaker, reset alarm clocks, and put Vaseline on doorknobs. But my favorite prank was a report I turned into my teacher in grade school (now that was bold!).
My Aunt Luella helped me with this one. If I had to use only one word to describe her, it would be "kind". She was the oldest of my mother's siblings and she made you feel as if you were the most important person in her world when you were with her. She owned the Montgomery Ward catalog store in town and my husband and I had the privilege of living next door to her when we were first married.
So in honor of her memory, here's her recipe for --
Salt & Pepper
2 rabbits (optional)
- Cut elephant into bite-size pieces. This should take about two months.
- Cover with brown gravy
- Cook over a kerosene fire for about four weeks at 465°
- This will serve 3800 people. If more are expected,
two rabbits may be added but do this only if necessary
as most people do not like to find
"hare" in their stew.
Let your inner prankster out on April 1st and have a little fun.
