sometimes a bluff is just not a bluff...

Today's learnings:
Sometimes when your kid says he doesn't like your taboule salad, even after he has taken two adventure bites, he might really enjoy the third.

And sometimes when your kid says he really doesn't like your taboule salad after his two adventure bites, you should just absolutely believe him. Especially after he retches and then vomits (albeit neatly--I've gotta hand it to him for that) his entire dinner directly onto his plate, and then looks up and says, "Whoa, I really didn't like that."

That sort of mealtime event pretty much slaughters any desire I might have had left to find more creative things to eat for summer dinners.

Tomorrow's dinner:
Mac and cheese
