I was making dinner one night when Sammi came into the kitchen, looked in the frying pan and wrinkled her nose.
Sammi: "Eww... What's that?"
Me: "Fried chicken."
Sammi: "It's not made out of animals is it?"
Me: "Uhhh, why do you ask?"
Sammi: "Connor told me that meat comes from dead animals and I do NOT want to eat dead animals. I want the meat without animals in it."
Me: "Well sweetie, it's fried chicken - it's a chicken..."
Sammi (disgusted): "So you mean that someone KILLED that chicken and now you're COOKING it and expect me to EAT it??? No. I am not eating that!!!"
Me: "But you love chicken..."
Sammi (stomping her foot on the ground): "Not if it's made out of real chickens I don't."
That night, my boys and I ate fried chicken for dinner while Sammi enjoyed a nice 'chicken-less' salad.
