Anyhoo, we had all kinds of things we did. They were still expected to eat what was served, but we did try to make it a bit more tolerable! Maybe we didn't expect for them to love asparagus and spinach as children...I guess we could have saved ourselves a lot of time trying to think up names like...Peter Rabbit soup, kitty milk, and the list goes on!
Either way...This soup is great, even though our little boy was highly disappointed that there was no rabbit in it! :}
