Kids say the darndest things and cannot be trusted with fire, so they make bad people to follow in the kitchen. But we still love hearing their ideas about food, because they’re so imaginative. Food is more a supply from the craft store than something you would eat.
This is dangerous for the digestive system but good for laughs. Twitter user Jordan Adams shared a cookbook from his nephew’s pre-k class, and they’re the perfect example of the delirious minds that want to serve you actual mud pies:
Ethan’s Eggs sound delicious, but they are missing one key ingredient: eggs.
Ariana’s Macaroni involves time at the pool, which I am on board with.
Joe’s Tacos took a really fast turn. He does NOT want tacos.
And Sebastian’s Pancakes sound delicious, but they’re pretty pricey:
Though they would never eat any of these recipes in a million years, people love them:
It’s weird, but I can hear kids’ voices while reading the instructions and that just makes Ariana’s Macaroni so much better.

I hear Ariana’s Macaroni in a rather serious adult voice, at a poetry reading. It gets a standing ovation, the audience moved to tears.

The Teachers out here really just writing down the children’s pure stream of consciousness

And find them pretty relatable, actually:
It’s like demented Ratatouille in here.
Getting recipes from kids is a pretty common thing, because it’s always funny. Some people shared their own weirdo recipes from school, which they’ve held onto all these years in case they want to give themselves food poisoning someday:
Maybe even on Thanksgiving:
And teachers everywhere love compiling them:
We need them!
Keep me laughing, kids, as I eat this boring sandwich that is made with bread instead of two skateboards, or something.
