A little bit of confusion

In Uganda, the children don't eat meat very often.  They eat chicken on certain days, but because the beef has been unsafe and made people sick in the past, many people just don't eat it at all.  Now that the kids are in America though, we have them eating all kinds of things, including hamburgers, hotdogs, spaghetti with meat sauce, roast, beef brisket, and roast beef sandwiches.  With that in mind, here is the conversation we heard on the bus yesterday:

Rose: (seeing a bunch of cows out the window) Auntie Ashley, have you ever eaten cow??

Ashley, unsure of just how much the children knew about what they eat in America, just raised her eyebrows and smiled.

Rose: You should really try it sometime.  I had it once... in my country.  It's good.  If you ever go to Uganda, you should try it.

She was so nonchalant and clueless about it, we all just died laughing!

Later in the day, we asked Isaac, "What are hamburgers made of, Isaac?"  He just shrugged his shoulders and guessed, "Flowers???"  Oh my goodness.

We still laugh at our house about Zurufaha and Maria wanting "ahmburgers" (how they say it) and eating ketchup packets!!
