17 Bites

Pay no attention to the dark green swirling around amongst the noodles, the walnuts bumping against the zucchini. There’s cheese! And it’s on top! Slices of beautiful parmesan delicately placed right where a four year old sees first- the top. “It’s green!” he says. “Oh nevermind that silly green. There’s cheese! Do you see it? Not only is it on top, where you can even lift it up with your fingers, but it’s all around the noodles, too! Like macaroni and cheese, except with ‘slurpy noodles’.”

note: “slurpy noodles” = spaghetti, because you slurp them up (sound effects are involved here.)

Skeptically, cheese is picked up.

Slowly, four noodles are slurped.

Even a walnut is licked.

Bread and butter and pear slices follow. One more attempt at a noodle.

Meanwhile, the adults are on their second bowls.

All are happy.
