Recipe for A Day

St. Pauls used to produce cook books using member recipes. This "recipe for a day" was published in the 1909 cookbook published by the St. Pauls Church League, the young adult group of the day.

 

A Recipe for a Day

Take a dash of water cold
And a little leaven of prayer,
A little bit of Sunshine gold
Dissolved in the morning air.
Add to your meal some merriment
And a thought for kith and kin
And then, as a prime ingredient
A plenty of work thrown in.
But spice it all with the essence of love
And a little whiff of play;
Let a wise old Book and a glance above
Complete the well spent day.
