That's What She Likes
By Beth Beutler
1 Meg Smith liked tortilla chips of all kinds. She liked white tortilla chips. She liked yellow tortilla chips. She even liked blue tortilla chips. She liked tortilla chips shaped like little bowls for dipping. She liked large tortilla chips and small ones. She liked round tortilla chips and wedge-shaped tortilla chips. She loved to go to Mexican restaurants and get - you guessed it - tortilla chips!
2 At home, Meg's mom would melt a bowl of cheese and let Meg dip tortilla chips in it. Meg liked to crush chips in a plastic bag, too. Mom would use them as a topping on casseroles. Meg also liked to dip chips in melted butter. Then she would sprinkle them with cinnamon. She learned to make her own crispy chips with Mom. They would cut up soft tortillas, dip them in melted butter, and then bake them until they were crispy. There were lots of ways to enjoy tortilla chips.
3 Meg liked to try tortilla chips at different restaurants. Tonight, the family was going to Mary's Mexican Restaurant. Meg was excited. So far, Mary's was the best place for tortilla chips. Meg also loved the salsa there. It was neither too hot nor too mild. It was just right.
4 "Are you ready to go?" Mom asked.
5 "I sure am!" Meg said.
6 Mom, Dad, Meg, and her brother John got in the car. It took about seven minutes to get to Mary's.
7 They went in the door. The hostess greeted them.
8 "Hello, Smith family!" (The Smiths went to Mary's a lot. That's why the hostess knew their name.)
9 They sat down at their favorite table. Juan, their regular waiter, came by.
10 "Hello," he said.
11 "Hello," Meg replied.
