Elly's attempt to make Lizzie like the beets that she pulled out of the ground herself work about as well as her incessant attempts to disguise foods her children hate.

(Strip Number 446, Original Publication Date, 5 August 2012)

Panel 1: We start things off with an excited Lizzie telling a smiling John that Mommy is cooking the beets she pulled today.

Panel 2: She points to the pot they're in and declares that she pulled'em up all by herself thereby making dem her very own beets.

Panel 3: Elly sets up the punchline by telling Lizzie that she gets the very first serving of beets.

Panel 4: Lizzie surprises no one but Elly when she says that she hates beets.

Summary: It seems that Elly went into this with the misapprehension that showing the kids real food would make them like things they hate. Since that's nuts, it works as well as her 'clever' plan to trick her children into eating hated foods so that she can declare that since they didn't die, they HAVE to eat them from now on.
