The three kewl girls are obsessed with the colour pink. I try not to encourage this particular obsession, but that's not to say I don't use it to my advantage on occasion.
Not long after the pink obsession began, I discovered beetroot the wonder fruit and it's ability to turn food pink. After this discovery I started adding beetroot the wonder juice to everything and the girls became a whole lot less fussy about food. Pink potatoes were a particularly big hit. So much so, they became a regular feature on our dinner table.
Maybe too much of a regular feature.
We went to the girls' god parent's for dinner last night and they made 'regular' mashed potatoes. Miss F was not having it.
Miss F: "What's that?"
God Mother: "Mashed potatoes"
Miss F: "Potatoes? Are you sure?"
GM: "Yes, I'm sure."
Miss F: "What did you do to them?"
GM: "I mashed them.."
Miss F: "Potatoes?"
Miss F: "But they're a funny colour?"
GM: "They're white..."
Miss F: "Oh. Are they sick?"
GM: "No, that's just how potatoes are."
Miss F: "White?"
GM: " Yes."
Miss F: "Oh."
Miss F: "Lying isn't a good choice, you know."
GM: "I'm not lying!"
Miss F: "Ah-huh."
