A Tower of Sautéed Vegetables.

Monday 30th May 2011

“Daddy, have we got a starter for dinner tonight?” He asked as I was washing his hair.

“What do you mean?”

“Are we having a starter with our dinner today?” He continued.

“No, but I’m sure I could find something if you wanted me to.”

“Yeah, can you make a starter?”

“I don’t know what I’ve got…” I said. “…But I’m sure I could find something, salad or something.”

“No, I don’t want salad. If you make salad, I definitely won’t eat it.” He told me indignantly.

“Why what do you want then? I don’t know if I’ve got anything else.”

“No, I want something like a digestive with cheese on top or something like that.” He described.

“We haven’t got any digestives. But I’ll find something.” I told him.

“Ok…” He said “…Just don’t make it salad.” He called after me.

Mum was very impressed.

“Zephy, you eat like a king.” She said.




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.

    I’m very impressed, too! That’s a handsome stack of veggies… and I find it hilarious that your child asks for a “starter” to his meal. Seriously…. 😉
