When I was little, one of my favorite things in the wide world was getting a Surprise Plate for a snack or lunch. Mother would hype it up and I'd get all excited to see what surprises were on my plate. Somehow eating an odd combination of foods made perfect sense and it managed to get me to eat things I might not otherwise enjoy. The staples on our plates were always marshmallows and olives. Guess we always had both of those on hand! Beyond that it could be anything edible!
Eli and MJ have been a little run down today so I decided we needed a Surprise Plate as a pick me up! Too bad I didn't have any olives.

That's really so sweet! Michael loves marshmallows, Mal doesn't. Mal loves olives, Michael doesn't.
