A scene from lunchtime today:
Me: (cutting and serving Will a balanced and easy but definitely not gourmet meal of bread, chick peas and prunes.)
Sam: Mama, may I have a prune?
Me: Do you know what a prune used to be?
Sam: No, I don't. What?
Me: It used to be a plum. You can make prunes by dehydrating (simple explanation of vocabulary word here) plums. Pretty cool, huh?
Sam: So what did a strawberry used to be?
