Broad Beans, Potatoes & Seitan.

Thursday 28th April 2011

“What do you think of that bit there?”

I asked pointing to a piece of seitan on his plate.

“Good…” He replied. “…What is it?”

“Seitan. It’s a meat substitute.” I said.

He considered this information for a millisecond.

“Dad…what’s your favourite sense?”

My son is studying the senses at school at the moment.

“Good question…” I said. “…Sight, I think. I couldn’t live without my sight, I don’t think. How about you?”

“I couldn’t live without taste.” He replied.


“Because you’d die.”

“Why would you die?” I probed.

“Because you couldn’t eat anything.”

I love the way kid’s minds work.


Thanks for the beans Gill. 🙂


About whatdidyouhavefordinnerlastnight

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.

    Yes this was very tasty and I really wasn’t sure about it’s texture before I tasted it. Now I’d eat it again any time.
