Grade 1, talking about favorite foods during morning meeting:

Alexandra*   "My Mother's mac and cheese!  I'd eat it every day.  She adds extra butter and cheese and crunchy things.  It's yummy."

Rian*   "I know what artichokes are.  But I can't eat them right now, until my bottom two grownup teeth come in."

Stuey*   "My favorite food is gum.  Did you know I've had this gum (in his mouth at the time) since yesterday?"

*These budding gourmets' names are, of course, changed.  Just as their food delights may, in the future..
