The broad bean monster

The broad bean monster lives in my house.

"I don't like carrots"
But you liked them yesterday.

"I don't like those bits"
Mushrooms used to be your favourite.

"I won't eat that"
Parsnips are lovely. You used to like them.

"No, not that"
But butternut squash really is yummy. I'm not even lying about that one.

So I offer my son a selection of baked beans or broad beans.

The boy chooses broad beans.
I didn't expect that.

"Yay, yay special beans"
Really? I don't remember them being special.

He polishes them all off before even contemplating his (usually first choice) fish fingers.

My son is odd.
