Salad by McKay

Tonight I made a chicken salad for dinner--a typical, simple Friday night meal for our family.  As I was preparing it, McKay was standing on a chair next to the counter, watching my every move and "helping."  (This is also typical.  He does this every. single. night.)  I turned my back for a fraction of a second, and when I spun back around I was met with this sight:


Here's the close up:

Yes, that is what it appears to be.  McKay dumped an entire bottle of bacon bits over the top of his salad.  When Adam came home from work just a couple minutes later, he was greeted with, "Hey, Dad!  I don't like tomatoes.  I just really like bacon bits."   We never doubted that for a minute, son.  And now the secret is out.  Now you understand what we mean when we say salad is McKay's favorite food.  What 2-year-old wouldn't like a salad like that?!

Hahaha! Generally I pass on salad, but if McKay is making mine, I might have to make an exception. Mmmm!

DJ would appreciate it if McKay would make his salad when we come visit you... he's impressed with his skills and would also enjoy that much bacon!

Well Meggin, I have a feeling you made the opening in the bottle a little bigger than it's intended to be...
