There are a whole lot of trite sayings that apply to this. ‘You can learn something new every day.”The naivete of children lets them try things others wouldn’t.’ Etc.

But I would never ever have tried this and am still strangely reluctant even though it makes perfect sense. We had some left over popcorn from last night – made the usual way. But Jan didn’t want/couldn’t eat it all, so we saved the rest for the kids. This morning when we discovered that we were out of bread so the usual bead and egg options were out, the girls spotted the popcorn and proceeded to make bowls of popcorn and milk for breakfast. They have apparently done this before and like it since both immediately dived in happily.

As you can tell, I was surprised. Maybe I should try it sometime…
