It was like Dr. Seuss characters invaded our home this week and stood in place for the kids during our mystery food challenge. Even sautéing the leeks in a little butter and olive oil didn’t help our cause. Leeks were not a hit food. They’ll get there. Leeks cooking in butter is one of the all time best cooking smells. One day they’ll realize the error of their ways…
ME: Ok. Smell it.
LAUREN: Oh my God.
ME: Why? Why oh my God? What does it smell like?
LAUREN: It smells like wine.
ME: Does it smell like wine? There’s no wine in there. You think I’d feed you wine? What do you think it smells like Sam?
SAM: A strong smell. It has a strong smell of wine.
ME: Ok. It’s not wine.
LAUREN: And beer.
ME: No, that’s my beer that you’re smelling!
ME: Yeah, yummy, right? Smells good.
LAUREN: Actually, it’s not.
SAM: It smells like a trash can.
ME: Ok. It’s not a trash can.
ME: What are these called, because you guessed last week.
EMMA: Collard greens.
ME: Nope, it’s not that. What vegetable rhymes with weeks?
ME: Ok. Sausage?
EMMA: Yeah, sausage.
SAM: Queeks.2 comments
