My eldest daughter HATES carrots.
Seriously. You would not believe the hoops this girl will jump through to avoid eating carrots (and I put carrots in nearly every soup and stew I make).
Well, tonight I made Pea Soup (which my family loves) and she was psyched to see that I’d loaded it down with chunks of potatoes (dude, you would not believe how much these people dig their taters) and . . . wait for it . . . not a carrot in sight.
The operative word there being *sight*
Actually, the entire soup was organic. Organic chicken broth (yeah, so my pea soup isn’t the vegetarian model), organic split green peas, organic celery, organic onions, organic yukon gold yellow potatoes, and [oops] organic yellow baby carrots (cut into chunks . . . like the potatoes . . . which were the exact same color).
She ate every last bite. Never once complaining. Never once even suspecting.
I made my daughter eat carrots.
No. I made my daughter eat carrots and LIKE them.
s C o r e ! 😉
Plus it was realllly good pea soup.
