Andrew (13): Yeah! Mashed potatoes!
Maureen: Autumn must be here if we’re back to having mashed potatoes.
Nicholas (10): So what are we having?
Maureen: Pork chops with cider… and some other stuff.
Tim: Maybe a more specific description is in order.
Maureen: Well, I didn’t mention the dill, since you don’t like it, but it’s pretty obvious since it’s sitting on top of the pork chop.
Tim: Anything else?
Maureen: Oh. And horseradish. I didn’t think I’d be able to find one, but sure enough, Creaky Shed came to my rescue. This is certainly a root vegetable I wouldn’t find at any of the local supermarkets. The only problem is I only needed two tablespoons of grated horseradish, but the horseradish I got would last us into the next decade at that rate. Do you like it?
Tim: Yes, it’s nice.
Andrew and Nicholas: Yes, it’s good.
Maureen: Would you like me to make it again?
Tim: Why not? It’s pretty good, and it seems like a good thing to eat as we move into autumn.
Maureen: I’ll be happy to do that, given that I’ve got plenty of horseradish to make it with.
