    Eat your sunshine, or you’ll never grow tall and strong.

    ‘Listen, when I was your age, all we had was candlelight … and we loved it!’

    Maybe he could wash it down with some Sunny Delight.

    If you finish all your sunshine you can have some phosphorus for dessert.

    Sounds more like “bore-ophyll” to me.

    His mother had better watch out, or she might end up in one of these…. ;-)

    Lazy Daisy Cake (8 inch square cake)

    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla (real not artificial)
    1 cup granulated sugar
    1 cup flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup milk (whole milk)
    4 tablespoons butter
    3 tablespoons dark-brown sugar
    2 tablespoons cream
    1/2 cup grated coconut or chopped nuts

    Preheat the oven to 350°F.
    Butter and lightly flour an 8-inch square cake pan.
    Beat the eggs with the vanilla until they have thickened slightly.
    Gradually add the granulated sugar and beat thoroughly.
    Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt together and add to the first mixture, blending until smooth.
    Heat the milk and 1 tablespoon of the butter together in a small pan.
    When the butter has melted, stir the milk and melted butter into the batter and mix well; the batter will be very liquid.
    Pour into the pan and bake for about 25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
    Remove the cake from the oven.
    Mix the 3 remaining tablespoons of butter, the brown sugar, the cream, and the coconut or nuts together in a small pan over low heat until melted and well blended.
    Spread over the hot cake and brown lightly under the broiler for a minute or two, taking care that it does not burn.

    Notes from me: Flouring a cake tin means greasing it, in this case with butter, and then putting in sufficient flour to coat the bottom and sides as you shake and rotate the pan.

    Sunlight’s good for him; when I was a little goober, Mom and her sisters used to slather gobs of homemade suntan lotion on each other and us kids: baby oil and vinegar. We fried, but we were tastier than Coppertone kids. And we all survived.

    hush now and eat your cream of chlorophyll. There are starving white asparagus stalks who would love to have chlorophyll.

    When I was your age, I was raised my mushrooms. They kept us in the dark and fed us BS.
