Who Put the Pepper in the Pot? - CLC Seal of Approval

Who Put the Pepper in the Pot? is a delightful story about a family and their many preparations for the arrival of an aunt who is coming to visit. The family joins together in their efforts to make everything perfect for their special visitor. When the mother is too busy to do it herself, she asks her family, one person at a time, to add some pepper to the pot of stew. When each of them say they can’t, she asks yet another to put pepper in the stew. Eventually, when they each find the time, they all add a little pepper, some more than others. Unbeknownst to each other, they have inadvertantly added so much pepper that the stew is rendered inedible. The family all has a good laugh over it and Aunt Tootie offers to make her famous omelettes for dinner. When she asks for the pepper so she can add it to her omelette, everyone gets a good laugh, because they realize they are now completely out of pepper.
