Recipe and Jokes.

Hi There Folks ~~ Another day and the sun is shining

but with very little warmth in it. But let’s not go there.

I am sorry that my last post was so long, as I had not

realised that The Woman took up so much space. And

I do like a good sized print. So on with today’s post.


The riddles were very simple ones – Black sheep eat far

less grass than white sheep because there are fewer of


After one drink, we no longer have empty stomachs.


Recipe for an Egg Salad.

1 pkt of Lemon jelly crystals, 1 cup Boiling water, ½ cup

of cold water. ½ cup mayonnaise, 1 tablespn lemon juice

Salt and pepper to taste, ¾ cup grated cheese, 4 hard

boiled eggs, ½ cup grated carrot, ½ cup chopped celery

1 tblspn chopped parsley.


Dissolve jelly with hot water, add cold water and the

mayonnaise. Blend and chill until set around the edges.

Beat until fluffy. Add all the vegetable and sliced eggs

and the cheese and lemon juice. Combine well and pour

into a mould, chill and serve.


I made this last night and it turned out very delicious,

but I added a small can of peas and corn. All nice.

Now we have eaten, let’s find a joke or two………


I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. She picked

up something off the ground and started to put it in her

mouth. I took the item away from her and asked her not

to do that. “Why?” my daughter asked.

“Because it has been laying outside, you don’t know where

it’s been, it’s dirty and probably has germs,” I replied.


At this point, my daughter looked at me with total

admiration and asked, “Wow ! How do you know all this

stuff?” Thinking quickly, I said, “All Mums know this stuff

It’s on the Mummy Test. You have to know it, or they don’t

let you be a Mummy,”


We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was

evidently pondering this new information. “Oh…..I get

it,” she said, “So if you don’t pass the test, you have to be

the Daddy.” “Exactly,” I said with a big smile on my face

and joy in my heart.


Church: A man went to church one day and afterward he

stopped to shake the preacher’s hand. He said, “Preacher,

I’ll tell you, that was a damned fine sermon. Damned good”

The preacher said, “Thank you sir, but I’d rather you

didn’t use profanity.”

The man said, “I was so damned impressed with the sermon

I put five thousand dollars in the offering plate.”

The preacher said, “No s**t.


<><><> A Sign Of Change. <><><>

Two old men sitting on a park bench passing the day away

talking. One old man asked the other, “How is your wife?”

The second old guy replied, “I think she may be dead.”

The first man asked, “What do you mean you THINK

she is dead?”

The second explained, “Well--- the sex is the same

but the dishes are starting to pile up.”

<><><><> Now let us be nice. <><><><>

The densest forest began with the growth of but one

single tree.


However high a bird may soar

It seeks it’s food on earth. Danish proverb.


Faith grows as I do the simple things I know how to do.


Kindness is the only investment that never fails.

Merle, found your site through Thursday 13. Love the one about if you don't pass the test you'll be a daddy! My mother is 84 and I would like to see her start a blog. I'll tell her about you and maybe that will help. Have a good day.

I love large fonts too! Better on the eyes!

Your jokes are always great & one day I might try your recipes. Even though I'm a Mom, I hate to be in the kitchen but I have to go in there sometimes or everyone will starve. Of course, that might not be a bad idea with my 12 yearold.Hhhmmm......;)

I printed out the recipe to try later - thanks. I like the one that tells about faith growing as I do the simple things I can do. That is all that God expects - to do the things He has talented us to do. ec

Jon Cox said...

Hello my friend! :o)
Thank you so much for the suggestions, I appreciate it a lot! I've thought about making them again and maybe having the wolf laying in bed and wearing both the cap and grannys glasses. I was thinking Red would have a real scared look on her face or something. Anyways, thank you again for visiting my blog & for your suggestions, I appreciate it A LOT! Take Care! :o)
