Something about Vegetables

Some of Meggie’s favorite foods were apples, ice cream, and chicken noodle soup.  But she didn’t like most vegetables. She ate carrots and she liked potato chips (which she considered a vegetable). But that was all.

Her mother tried to get her to eat peas, but Meggie hid them in her mashed potatoes. This wasn’t such a good idea because she would sometimes eat mashed potatoes and then she’d accidentally eat some of the peas. 

One summer Meggie’s family went to a farmer’s market where there were lots of colorful flowers and produce, including vegetables. Her parents bought some sweet corn (something she really liked) and as they walked around she saw a basket of cucumbers. The person at the booth let her take a slice of one to try. When she bit into it she had a surprise – she liked it! It made her think she might try other vegetables, which she did. But she still doesn’t like peas.

  1. Isn’t that a strange thing about peas? Most of my family have a love/hate relationship with peas, yet they eat all other vegetables. I love your photos, Meg. You make all fresh produce look appealing with these. 🙂

    • Thanks Joanne! There are some outdoor markets that have the most delightful displays of vegetables, and I wanted a reminder that vegetables can look appealing… 🙂
