Is this a green bean?

Last week Huong whipped up a quick batch of 'house special' fried rice. Wholly at odds with the rest of her cooking, her cơm chiên sometimes includes frozen vegetables to augment the leftovers scrounged from the 'fridge.

Trinhity was poking through her bowl of fried rice and found a (formerly frozen) green bean. She bit it. She made a yucky face. She looked at Huong and asked, "Mama, is this a green bean?" Yes, dear, it is.

"It doesn't taste like a green bean." She bit it again, made a disgusted face, and spat it out. "Yuck!"

Thus her first -- and, unfortunately, not last -- encounter with frozen vegetables....
