Eat your veggies!


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.

Hmmmmm, as long as chocolate is an ingredient, I'll eat anything :)

If I have to have something green in my chocolate cake, make it arugula. I like it with everything else so why not chocolate ( dark, please ).
