I guess it should come as no surprise that Mason likes tacos. Despite the fact that mealtime became a pain in the a-s shortly after he turned 1–some days he’d eat everything on his plate, other days he’d reject nearly everything–he’s always enjoyed surprising spices and flavors. He fell in love with curried lentils at nine-months-old, tasted his first bite of foie gras at 11-months-old, and slurped gazpacho at his birthday dinner last year. But I’m still a little shocked every time that he loves something unexpected.
Perhaps I’m traumatized from all of the food throwing.
Last night Chris made chicken tacos with corn tortillas. We added roasted tomatoes, red onion, three cheeses, guacamole, and fat-free sour cream–and they were delish. Mason flung the tortilla, but ate everything else. He liked the guac so much that he finished it off with a spoon after his chicken was gone (and laughed the entire time he ate it). I was so excited I texted multiple friends, but restrained myself from broadcasting the news on Facebook.
This morning Mason threw all of his breakfast on the floor, except for a few crumbs of blueberry muffin. I suppose he was just reminding me that he’s still a toddler whose behavior/moods/likes/dislikes will stay impossibly unpredictable for a while. Love my little boy, nonetheless.
Has your kid eaten anything this week that’s surprised you?
