Jody- "Mom, what's for dinner?"
Me- "Won ton soup"
J- "Soup?!?! I LOVE soup!"
J- "What are won tons?"
**I pull out the won tons I made earlier and show her and then measure out the broth and water and explain that I will heat it up and then put the won tons in***
J- "Oh! That looks like pineapple juice!" (she was talking about the chicken broth)
Me- really? it looks more like apple juice to me"
J- "Can I smell the won tons?"
J- "they smell yummy! It is going to be so good! Oh, whats inside them?"
Me- "leftover pork from last night and shredded cabbage"
J- "Yummy! Can I help you put the green onions? You know I don't like onions right?"
Me- "how do you know if you don't try them?"
J- "I just know Mom."
and off she went to play...now I'm off to finish the soup and get dinner served....Will she eat it?
