Deceptive Dinner.

My son will not eat "potatoes Au gratin, with ham and cheddar cheese". He doesn't like potatoes you see..

He will eat "Ham chunks and cheese served with golden disks of the sun".

The same freaking dinner I made last week that got a "gross!!! I don't like potatoes." Tonight elicits "COOL! I've never eaten disks from the sun before!!! *insert maniacal gobbling of food, eight year old style* Can I have some more?"

Absolutely.. Let me dish it up for you...


  • Mmmm, those golden discs of the sun sound really good to me right now. I'm starving! Plus, potatoes are so uncool, you know?

  • How SWEET of you to risk your life shaving off bits of sun like that! ;)

  • When I was in 2nd grade, we had venison for dinner. I asked what venison was, and was told it was deer. I refused to eat it. My dad wouldn't let me up from the table until I'd eaten it. I sat at that table for 2 hours without touching a bite before he finally relented and let me leave the table.

    About 3 years later, I asked dad what he was cooking for dinner. He answered, "roast beast." I figured we were having roast beef, and he was just being his usual goofy self. I sat down and ate my fill of the wonderfully delicious meal. I think I even had seconds. When I'd finished, he told me I'd eaten venison. I just shrugged and said, "oh, well." Now I love the stuff.

  • I had a similar situation one Thanksgiving. I absolutely refused to eat stuffing, which lead to alot of yelling and tears at the table. My father made me eat it.

    The next year I was waiting on the stuff, and he waited until I had gotten the last bite shoveled in before he said, "I thought you didnt like that?"

  • As kids our mom would make this soup with onions and green peppers. We would scoop them out and set them aside.

    So she started making the soup without them. We later found out she had been putting them in a blender, purreed the heck out of them and added it to the soup. Sneeky mom.
