So my husband decided that he was going to make dinner tonight while we were at the grocery store and I have to say that he did a terrific job. It was so yummy! I had my camera out so I even got a shot before I sat down.
On top of some fine chef skills, my husband possesses an uncanny ability to get preschoolers to try their veggies. Tonight we had asparagus and salad. The four year old was resistant to eating the asparagus. Daddy pipes up, "Oh Monkey, don't eat Junior Asparagus! Don't eat Archibald either! No, don't eat him, aaaaaahhhhhh!"
Wow, tell my kid that he is eating one of his favourite characters from Veggie Tales and he gobbles those suckers right up. Almost seems wrong to me.
I have mentioned before how much I love grocery shopping with my 4 year old boy. He is so enthusiastic and interested in everything. We could spend vast amounts of time in the produce section. There have been many occasions where he has shown interest in an interesting fruit or veggie and we have to try it. Today it was Vietnamese Dragon Fruit. Looks kinda scary, but it was surprisingly delicious. It is supposed to taste like a cross between strawberry and pear, which it did, kind of like a mild kiwi. The kids had fun devouring it!
