Background - I am on day three of a stupid detox diet, which means I am STARVING, and, I am paying extra close attention to every piece of fruit and starch husband and kiddo pop into their mouths.
This is the new Tim Horton's s'mores donut - chocolate donut, chocolate fondant, covered with mini marshmallows & graham crumbs (there many even be mini chocolate chips on this sucker, I'm not sure, I won't allow myself to be within biting distance.)
So back to where I was going with this....
Last night after supper, I sitting on the couch with my tea pretending to study. Err, minding my own business, when husband and kiddo bound into the room each chomping on one of the above donuts. My stomach lets out a roar that would scare when the bravest soul.
Girgle Giirgle Girgle.... I want a donut!
"Kiddo, could you please get mom something green to snack on." I ask.
Sensing the desperation in my voice, kiddo leans over me and lays her donut on the side table before spinning on her heels and bounding in to the kitchen, dog chasing at her heels. Leaving me sitting next to her s'morey temptation while watching husband unlatch his jaw and swallow his donut whole.
Kiddo returns in what feels like an hour. With a whole green pepper....
"What? Kiddo, a whole green pepper?"
"Well," she replies "this is green. You did ask for something green, and Bean thought it was a good idea."
"What do you mean, Bean thought it was a good idea?"
"Well, Tina Bean got excited when she saw it, and when I let her smell it, she kept licking it."
"Owwww... Did you wash it after the dog was finished licking it?"
She shrugs, husband laughs.
I throw the pepper back to her, "Wash this off an put it back in the fridge, my appetite is gone."
This is the point when I remember the unwashed supper dishes in the kitchen sink, take my now empty mug and head to the kitchen.
Kiddo is standing in front of the sink, dog by her feet, washing the pepper IN the sink, WITH the dirty dishes! gaww
"Kid, what are you doing?"
She rolls her eyes, "Washing the pepper like you told me too."
