Supper Talk

Yesterday afternoon Claire was setting the table when she asked about what we were going to have for dinner. I replied, "Pasta with sausage and broccoli," pointing her to the fridge where the recipe hung, "and a salad."

"Any other 'sidings'?" Claire asked.

"What?" I asked, wondering if I'd heard her correctly.

Explaining further, she said, "You know how sometimes we have chicken and green beans and, like, black-eye peas--well, are there any other 'sidings' tonight?"
