Has any one got this recipe. I think it was in the Aunt Daisy book from years ago. It went some how like this.
' Mix in lots of laughter, and ahandful of kisses... ... .
Many thanks in advance if any one has it.

Here you are babe56... . .

From my 1968 version of "The Aunt Daisy Cookbook with household hints"... . .

Be careful in your selection. Do not choose too young.
When once selected, give your entire thoughts to preparation for domestic use. Some insist on keeping them in a pickle, others are constantly getting them into hot water. This may make them sour, hard and sometimes bitter. Even poor varieties may be made sweet, tender and good by garnishing them with patience, well sweetened with love and seasoned with kisses. Wrap them in a mantle of charity. Keep warm with a steady fire of domestic devotion and serve with peaches and cream. Thus prepared, they will keep for years. "


Edited to add... . . this is not quite the version you recall but I think I have seen several versions over the years. :-))

He critisized her puddings and he didn't like her cake
He wished she'd make the bicuits like his mother used to make
She didn't wash the dishes and she didn't make the stew
She didn't mend his stockings as his mother used to do.
Oh well she was not perfect but she tried to do her best
Until at last she thought it was time she had a rest
So one day when he said the whole rigmarole right through
She turned and boxed his ears like his mother used to do :-)
