Bookish Bites : Any guesses?

Normal Bookish Bites service will resume next week, we’ve been a bit on the on, off poorly side over the past ten days and so, despite quite a lot of baking, it’s mostly been just me doing it! Instead there’s this… this is a page from Time by Jan Pienkowski. A short, lovely little book with Pienkowski’s characteristic vibrant and colourful illustrations that we’ve read with Milo since he was a baby. Very few words throughout the book which I think is enjoyable still even though Milo’s almost three now and can manage books that are pretty word heavy. Few words leaves space for discussion and  chatter, and chatter is what led to Milo and I discussing this page.

It shows the two boys having lunch. Any guesses to what the brown blobby stuff is? I’d include it as a Bookish Bites and maybe have a little fun with carrot chips instead of potato ones as these chips look a little orange, maybe they are carrots actually but I don’t know what the brown stuff is.

Milo’s guess… pumpkin! A bit odd as he knows what a pumpkin looks like and unless something has gone very wrong, they generally look nothing like this.

      Wow – hadn’t thought of that, was going more down the route of meatloaf – that sort of thing. But a mexican twist, I like it! 🙂
