It might even be a smashed pea. This is particularly true if you have dogs or kids, or both. Dogs often drop bits of their food on the floor that they don’t realize is stuck to the fur around their mouth. Dogs and kids track mysterious substances in from outdoors. The very nature of the food preparation, serving and possible consumption that takes place in the kitchen means that some bits of food or splashes of sauces and gravy will end up on the floor and possibly trampled. The hectic nature of holidays, such as Thanksgiving, with family and guests crowded into the kitchen make it even more likely that spots of food and other things end up drying on the floor.scraping spot on kitchen floor
