Ants and Artichokes

I made chicken artichoke pizza for dinner tonight, and while we were eating Simeon said:

"Mom I don't want to hurt your feelings or anything, but you know how when you squish ants between your fingers and then smell them? Well this pizza tastes a little bit like that smell."

I guess it's only reasonable to assume then that squished ants must taste like artichokes?

(I don't suppose I'll be getting any comments asking for my chicken artichoke pizza recipe after this post.)

I didn't know there was a smell to squished ants. But that is pretty funny !
Love ya'll !

At least now we know Uncle Juan isn't the only one that does that. Now Simeon and Juan have something in common!

I didn't know that ants had a smell either, but glad to know that your kiddo does. Did he end up eating the pizza anyway?

At least he was nice about it! One of my kids once said, "This is disgusting!" about the dinner I had just made and daddy was quick to say that they were being unkind when mommy worked so hard to make the meal. I told them it was fine if they didn't like everything I made, but they are required to "try" everything and if they truly do not like it they can kindly say, "I don't care for this."
