Sarah just completed the "el" unit in spelling. One of the words she learned was "mussel". I made sure she was aware that it wasn't a "muscle". She asked what it was, and I told her it was a kind of shellfish. She said, "Can we have it for dinner?" So we did. None of us had ever bought, cooked, or eaten a mussel before, so it was a fun experience.
Sarah didn't like the way they looked, but she took a cautious bite and instantly hated them.
Shiloh took a sniff and decided she didn't like them either.
Mike, Noah, and I thought they were ok, but nothing we'd go out of our way to eat again.
