There were lots of colorful descriptions (thankfully PG) of pattypan squash this week. There was some debate, some tasting, and for the first time in weeks….a hit, a hit everyone! We’ve got ourselves a winner. Despite not enjoying zucchini and yellow squash (except in noodle form), pattypan was a success. Which goes to show that with kids, introducing a vegetable with a funny shape and an even funnier name is half the battle. I don’t often include the audio but when it’s a good discussion, I can’t help but share it, so be sure to click the audio link below if you want to hear the conversation live.
SAM: What’s that?
ME: What do you think it is?
LAUREN: I know what it is. I think it’s a tomato.
ME: Do you guys all want to hold it?
EMMA: I wanna hold it!
ME: OK, don’t fight over it. Lauren’s first. Lauren?
ME: She’s going to pass it to you next.
ME: What is it?
SAM: No, I’m next!
LAUREN: Smells like some green.
ME: Smells like a green?
ME: OK. Who’s holding it next?
SAM: ME ME ME!4 comments
