|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Daniel Tries a New Food
Daniel is playing adventure in a pretend cave he has set up in his house. Dad Tiger is pretending to be a "silly beast" -- a creature he has just made up.
Taking a break from his adventure, Daniel joins his mom in the kitchen where she is preparing for dinner. Together they make a new dessert -- banana swirl. When the bananas come out of the blender, Daniel is hesitant to taste them but Mom Tiger reminds him that he should taste new foods because they might taste good. Much to Daniel's delight, he likes the pureed bananas. Daniel learns that they will be having veggie spaghetti for dinner.
Miss Elaina arrives as a guest for dinner. She and Daniel play the silly beast game before they make-believe that Tigey is the silly beast.
When it's time for dinner, Daniel is not sure if he will like veggie spaghetti. Encouraged by his mom and Miss Elaina, Daniel finds that he really likes it! After tasting it, Miss Elaina decides that she prefers plain spaghetti.
When the banana swirl is served, Dad Tiger tastes it since he has never had it before.
