When I was younger, my mom used to make some really fantastic split pea soup. Although up until about the age of 7, I thought she was saying spit pea soup, and I would get very disgusted that there was spit in it, but would eat it anyway because it was so good. I also though that grilled cheese sandwiches were girled cheese sandwiches, and once I asked for a boyed cheese sandwich!

My mother told me that if you ate the cranberry in Rosoff's Saurekrat jar that it was poison and you would die.
I think I beleived that for almost 20 years until I found out that it was only a decoration!

My friend's daughter used to call Apples "Napples". Actually, it made sense since people would always ask her if she wanted AN Apple - which sounded to her like A Napple!

I used to believe that the inside of my body was empty, and when you ate something, it went down to the lowest part of your body. So, if your first meal of the day was "salad", you would have "salad" inside your feet.

My mom always told me that oranges had lots of vitamin C in them and for some reason I thought that the white stuff on the inside of the orange peel was vitamin C. I thought that you had to eat that part to get the vitamins.

I used to believe that if I ate liver pate I would grow a new liver. I ate it like crazy, so then I could give my extra liver to someone who needed one.

We would go on picnics and there would be 4 chicken legs in the basket. Dad had me convinced all chickens had 4 legs. After all, how did Mother get 4 to fry ?

I used to think that butter's only use was to cool down hot foods; butter is kept in the fridge and then you cut a slice off put it on hot food and it melts into liquid that cools the food so you can eat it...toast pops up..it gets buttered...hot dinner rolls out of the oven...get the butter...corn-on-the-cob...slather it on!

Mine is similar to another I seen. When I was a kid my older brother told me that the peaches in a can have veins in them. If you look closely, you'll see what I mean. To this day I don't eat much fruit at all beacause I've noticed that a lot of fruit has "Veins."

On my first day of kindergarten, the lunch menu said, "Pig in a blanket" (A hotdog wrapped in bread.) Visualizing a very large live pig shaking and covering it's eyes while hiding under my 'Blankie', (blanket) I walked up to my mom, all worried, and asked, "Do I really have to eat a pig in a blanket?"

I used to believe that chicken fingers were sea food. Because whenever you go to a seafood resturant, chicken is always an option.

For some reason, I used to believe that if you put grape "stems" (the stuff left over after you've eaten all of the grapes) in the oven, that it'd turn into a huge baked turkey.

I believed when I was little that the crunchy stuff on fried chicken was actually the chicken's feathers. They would just pop the chicken into the oven and it would come out looking like fried chicken...

When my husband was small, he asked his father where spaghetti noodles come from. His father told them that macaroni's grow in fields in Italy and that spaghetti is extracted from the inside of the macaroni stalks.
