Hairy Chickens

The other night we had a salad with our dinner and as a big fan of raw vegetables, I put in quite an assortment. I love mushrooms and didn't put any on the boys' plates so I could hoard them all for myself. By the end of the meal curiosity had gotten the best of Benny and he wanted to try one of these things that I was munching on.

Reluctantly, I gave him one and the first thing he said was, "What is this stuff?!" pointing to the side of the slice I handed him.

"It's just what the inside of a mushroom looks like."

"It looks hairy to me."

"Well, if you're not going to eat it you can give it back to me."

He sniffs it, nibbles, then takes a bite. " tastes like chicken!"
