My five-year-old nephew, Eli, and his brother Enoch came over to play with us Thursday night. They are so energetic and fun! And they both love to eat. I had made some black bean soup just for me (no one else in my house will even try my cooking half the time, and when they do, I just feel disappointed because they don't really enjoy it.). Anyway, Eli said he was hungry - as always - and I told him to smell my soup to see if he wanted some. He said he would try it, so I gave him a little. He started to make the perfect sounds, "Mmm, this is good! I wish my mom and dad were here to try this!" I gave him some more. He said, "Wow. I wish I had the recipe for this soup!" Oh, how one small child can make my day.
