Funny, my picky eater child hates all forms of tomato EXCEPT the condensed
tomato soup.  I think it's the cooking that does it; it does lack that
"tomato" taste, doesn't it?  Though she still won't eat tomato ketchup.  But
I could spend hours discussing this child's horrible eating habits; there's
nothing more irritating than spending an hour on cooking a meal and having
this pint-sized pixie take ONE LOOK at the food and say YUCK.  Without even
tasting it.

chocolate here, though, as Jacob keeps reminding me.
