New Favorite Snack

"Mom," my eleven-year-old daughter said.  "I have a new favorite snack."

"Oh, yeah," I said.  "What's that?"

"Sugar cubes."

What?  I had expected to hear it was some sort of chip or cookie.  Sugar cubes were not on the radar screen.  "You're kidding," I said.  "Why are sugar cubes your new favorite snack?"

"Our teacher fed them to us in school."

I couldn't believe it.  Teachers are feeding our kids sugar cubes in school?  This needed a serious explaination!  "What do you mean, your teacher was feeding you sugar cubes in school?"

"We did a science experiment with them, and since we were good, our teacher let us eat them when we were done."

Oh.

"Listen kid," I said.  "You're not eating sugar cubes here!  You had better find a new favorite snack.  How about a banana?"

She gave me a funny look and walked away.

So much for bananas.

  2. My mom used to let us slice a banana and sprinkle sugar on it. It was delicious, but I never let my kids do it. My mom let us have way too much sugar.

    Love,

    1. I'd better not tell my daughter about this, or she'll be requesting a banana sprinkled with sugar!

  3. Bananas are nasty anyway, I'd rather have the sugar cube too.

    1. I think they were trying to make a sinkhole using the sugar cubes on saltine crackers. I have no idea how that worked - or why the teacher fed them the sugar cubes and not the saltine crackers. :)
