Do you like fern?
Phone conversation one night this week:
boy: Hello, this is Jimmy, May's son. Do you like fern?
me: Um..is it something to eat? (thinking: it's a houseplant)
Jimmy: Yes, it's a vegetable.
me: Ok, sure, if it's just a little. There's just my husband and me.
Later I meet up with his mother to read the Bible in English and she has a bag of fern leaves. She says, "My son says you like fern." Hahaha I tell her I had never eaten a fern and didn't even know how to cook it. She explains that I should put it in boiling water for three minutes and use the ginger sauce that was included. Well, the next day, we had some fern with our burritoes for lunch...and guess what ! ? It's not bad! It tastes like spinach. ha
