I eat my cereal; the girls polish off the chard and tell me that I'm late with their bell pepper. It's pretty much the same every work-day morning. I tell them they're begging fiends and they agree.
Last week's CSA veggies included a small handful of swiss chard. Chard is not one of my favorites, so the girls lucked out and had some of those little leaves for breakfast. I had to laugh when Willow grabbed the stem and ate the whole leaf, without a break, from one end to the other. I am rather pleased to have caught it on video:
It took her a full minute and a half to eat that whole leaf from tip to tip and finish swallowing. She gave herself a quick shake to snap out of her trance before going after the next piece. Nom!
