Food books and other thoughts...

Just finished reading:

The Nasty Bits by Anthony Bourdain

Currently reading:

The Art of Eating by M.F.K. Fisher
Sacre Cordon Bleu (What The French Know About Cooking) by Michael Booth

Moving on.

Little boy is a fussy eater. I have to mash his greens, or hide them in soup, cut his carrots and squash into teeny tiny pieces and make a smoothie out of all sorts of fruits. It's not so much the taste as the texture he has an aversion to, I think. He can eat dark green leaves but not the tough or crunchy stalks. For a long time I was sad because he would only eat soup, shrimp, noodles or fried anything, but this year signaled a change. He has started eating, and enjoying, sushi, pesto pasta, pasta with sundried tomatoes, papaya, honeydew melon, zucchini, prosciutto, and pizza. He still won't eat hamburger or mayonnaise or catsup or noodles that aren't in soup, but hey, I think he's starting early in the yummy food department.
