Do you every look at your children and say ” hmm, this one is just like me or that one is so totally my husband’? Well, when it comes to eating I can definitely say that about my children. My oldest is just like my husband. Will try anything, great eater and adventurous. My youngest is just like me – picky! My mother would blame herself for my eating habits when I was little, because she said she kept me on baby food too long. Go figure that out growing up in a Diner. I am not a cold sandwich lover. I wanted a hot lunch, soup preferred. But I did like the good stuff. Steak, Prime Rib, shrimp, scallops, you know the expensive stuff. When I was little and we went out to a restaurant, no hot dog hamburg for me. It was a steak or prime rib, baked potato.
Well my youngest is the same way. We can not get him to eat a grilled cheese for anything. He won’t eat a sandwich unless it is a sub from Subway. But give him a plate of calamari and he thinks he is eating exotic! Well today is his birthday and I owe him one of his favorite dinners. I found this recipe in Fine Cooking and thought, “He will never eat it!” Was I wrong. He loves it and asks for it. I think that is what I will have to make for him this weekend.
Happy Birthday my little man!
