This morning I was reading an interesting Lifehacker post about self control, when I came across a very cute embedded image, which was full-freakin-screen on my iPhone, of a little blond girl eating broccoli. She reminded me a lot of Nora. My next thought was, "Wait a minute! We've got some broccoli in the fridge!" At that point there was no turning back [insert ironic quip about self control here]; I had to take some broccoli publicity portraits of Nora. Much to my surprise, she didn't immediately throw it on the floor and run away. She actually took a few small bites, most of which were spit back out later. Perhaps she found the texture interesting. It was a repeat of her experience with a raw carrot last week.
Compare these to last year's similar introduction to strawberries.
"Okay, can we stop now?"
