    It’s not as if hers usually work, though.

    Just change your principles, Maria. As in, your new principle should be “No dessert left behind!”

    Love the bulging cheek in the last panel! I always found that swallowing “gross” veggies when I was a kid helped if I chewed them quickly without letting them touch my tongue, and then a quick swig of milk washed them down before I could taste them. That and hiding them in my napkin… :-)

    Oddly enough, I liked lima beans as a kid- even got all happy when we having them- then after growing up wanted nothing to do with them. Can’t remember why I liked them.
    Still don’t like broccoli.

    When I first saw the bulged out cheek, I thought it was a giant nose. And her mouth looked like the nostril.

    Broccoli – my sons favorite though I can’t even stomach the smell.

    Broccoli’s not bad if you have cheese on top. Cooked spinach is the worst.

    I love broccoli, especially when topped with melted cheese. Try it that way some time and you may find out you like it after all.

    @Stella S

    Spinach is about the only one I do like. But cooked as is, it can come out bitter. Best to cook it in chicken broth.

    Agreed… between Maria and Rita, I’m wondering where Scott and John get their inspiration from. I’m guessing either really odd minds or some seriously demented (or just lazy) people that they know. ;-)

    I have an odd mind.

    @johnzakour

    Mine’s pretty odd too, they tell me. But we both know demented and lazy people.
