While busily chopping the cabbage into fine strips for this recipe I see this tiny hand reach up and grab a big hunk of cabbage that was sitting there on the bench. Crunch – straight into my daughter’s mouth. I was expecting an immediate and noisy ejection of this vegetable, but no. She stood there, took another big bite and proclaimed the cabbage was delightful! “Mmmm… NumNum!! MMM… Good!”
She really does surprise me sometimes. I just stood back, mouth open, became very quiet - akin to watching from the shadows, a lion dining on its prey – I daren’t disturb her, and witnessed this miracle unfold before me.
