This week I brought home some micro greens from the Farmers’ Market.  What I didn’t know is that prior to our mystery food session, Rodney had taken the kids out for donuts and movie popcorn. So while I was running errands with Emma, Lauren and Sam were feasting on more junk than I usually eat in a week.

So what I’m trying to say is that micro greens were off to a horrible start. But miracle of all miracles, even after the sugar and the salt, Lauren said that she liked them. Loved them actually. Especially with a little drizzle of oil and salt. Can’t say I blame her after the morning she had. But I’m eager to get more of these greens into the rotation.

ME: This mystery food is micro greens.  What does it look like?

SAM: It looks like bananas.  It looks like strawberry ice cream.

LAUREN: I think it looks like clear donuts, with clear frosting.

ME: Are we looking at the same thing or is there a dessert hidden somewhere?

LAUREN: Donuts.

ME: Why donuts?

LAUREN: Because we just ate them.

ME: Who?

LAUREN: Us!  I had strawberry.

ME: What? No wonder!  Who took you?

LAUREN: We got it from Daddy. Dunkin’ Donuts.

ME: So that’s how he gets you to eat your lunch.

ME: Why’d you get Dunkin’ Donuts?

LAUREN: Because it was our special day going to the movies. We got popcorn.

ME: What? You got popcorn and donuts today?


ME: OK, we’re getting off topic here.

ME: (Resignedly) What does it taste like?

LAUREN: I think it tastes like real greens.

ME: (Brightening) What do you think Sam?

SAM: It tastes like strawberries.

LAUREN: Let’s try it with Oy-live Oil and vinegar.

ME: OK, let’s do it.

SAM: I don’t want to try it like that.

ME: You don’t have to.

LAUREN: Yum! More and more and more.

ME: Those are peppery greens. Sam, want to try it?

SAM: No.

ME: What does it smell like?

SAM: Donuts.
