I find Leif's taste buds to be suprising. Sure, he loves popsicles, lollipops, and chips, sad-- but certainly not unexpected in our junk food society. Some of his other favorites though, make me laugh. For example: freshly ground wheat flour! Every time I grind some, he's up there on the counter sampling the batch.
"Hi there, I'm Mr. flour eater. Nice to meet you."
"Oh, excuse me...cough.....cough.....I think I inhaled this stuff! Cough."
Yes, he loves to eat flour.
He also LOVES mushrooms fried in butter. He can hardly wait as I'm cutting the mushrooms, and I have to keep telling him that they're almost done. He eats them so fast I can barely keep up! Another favorite of Leif's is baked kale. It's crunchy, garlicy goodness and simple to make. You stir kale leaves with olive oil and minced garlic and bake until they've started to crisp. I sprinkle a bit of salt on them before eating. Leif and I are the only ones on our family who find this really delicious, so maybe we're strange. You should try it and let me know what you think. :-)
