Today as we were eating a "healthy" lunch of lil' smokies and broccoli w/cheese, my son asked me which animal the sausages came from.
This is a sore subject with my oldest and when I answered her question as a toddler about where her beloved bacon originated, she swore off most meat and still has issues with any meat that sports a bone.
So I was a bit leery answering the question. He's asked before about where certain meats come from and reacted ok, so I was just straight forward about it.
"It's pork, and pork comes from pigs."
"Mmm I love to eat pigs. Pull that tail straight and cook em' up!"
I was suddenly full.
