Chili con Carne & Tortillas with Tomato & Mint Salad.

Wednesday 16th March 2011

A couple of weeks ago I made quesadillas for dinner. They were not successful.

“I don’t like the taste. It’s too bready.” He said.

I had bought a pack of 20 tortillas in the Mexican food shop, of which we ate 6. (Well, I say we but Zephy didn’t eat his.) Never mind, the freezer is a great place to find those things.

When it came to serving up the chili I thought I’d give them another go. I ambitiously pulled out 3 tortillas from the freezer, hoping that he might at least eat one of them.

I almost didn’t bother to ask him if he wanted one, as I put the food on the table.

“Can I have one of those?” He said.

Pardon!, How do you ask for that?”

“Can I have one please?”

I handed over a warm tortilla.

“It’s a tortilla. You put a bit of chili in the middle, with some rice and fold it up like this.”

I quickly removed my fingers before they were eaten.


If you have never left a comment before, give it a go. It’s not as difficult as you think. šŸ˜‰

    “They” say it can take anywhere from 6-12 different exposures to a new food item for a kid to try it honestly enough (i.e., without emotional/psychological resistance) to realize they probably like it. Looks like your boy is a quick study! šŸ™‚
