If last week’s fava beans were a disappointment, we found redemption in a head of green leaf lettuce. Sometimes you don’t need to smell, feel, and talk about a vegetable to make it appealing. Sometimes it’s so wonderful that your kid just shoves it in his mouth without asking questions. Sometimes…..sometimes you just get lucky.
ME: Ok. Our first mystery food is…
ME: Nope. What is this called?

ME: It’s called green leaf lettuce.
LAUREN: Oh, I have tried this before.
ME: Yeah? Ok. Wow, Sam just shoved it in his mouth! Sam didn’t even smell it or anything he just shoved the whole thing in his mouth.
EMMA: It smells like peanut butter.
LAUREN: I love this.
ME: Ok. Sam, you just ate the whole thing, so tell me what did you think? Did you like it?
SAM: I love it, not like it.
