|Margie: Edna, today is Eat Your Vegetables Day so we're going to try something new. I'm going to make us a vegetable lunch and dinner. You can even use some of my unsalted butter on them.|
Edna, don't argue. At our age we could use a little extra health.
Edna: I'm not going to argue, I like vegetables. What are you going to cook for us?
Margie: Fresh tomatoes, squash, corn, watermelon, and chocolate cake.
I'm getting hungry.
Edna: Margie, the last time I checked, chocolate cake was not a vegetable.
Margie: Well, it is now because I put vegetable oil in it. That's healthy.
Edna: I've heard that some people put pureed spinach in chocolate cake to make it healthy and trick their children into eating vegetables. That would certainly make the cake healthier, but I still reserve the right to put homemade chocolate frosting on it. We can't totally lose our heads over this "healthy eating" kick the doctor has you on.
Margie: I won't be having any spinach, sister, but you feel free to whip up that homemade frosting.
