When Colton tells you one day that "meatloaf" has chocolate spread over the top of it, could you just go along with him? Oh, and nod your head when he tells you his mother made it with ham? I've stood on my head so many times trying to get the boys to try various dishes I make for supper. Colton has always had an aversion to meat. But I am learning that if you give a dish a creative name, like "sugar-and-chocolate-covered-no-thats-not-meat-underneath-surprise-loaf," you stand half a chance that they will take a bite. So what if he only heard the "ham" part of the hamburger. And I can get by with calling brown sugar and ketchup "chocolate." Please, future wife, forgive me.
The little turkey ate 4 pieces and swears its his favorite meal EVER. It was such a hit, just wait till you see what we're having tomorrow night... "hey-thats-not-tuna, noodle casserole, with yep- those-are-green-skittles-inside." Genius, I tell ya. I'm thinking I may have to write a cookbook!
