I am like ""what? "" since when does my little boy LOVE mushrooms?!! I quickly hide my disbelieving attitude and replace it with shock as my little guy starts licking and nibbling on the corners exclaiming "" delicious! "" .. then I do what any mom like me would do I pull out my camera! He continued to help me with dinner cutting up the mushroom. As he finished up I talked about how much I also loved mushrooms and offered him a piece of the mushroom to take with him if he wanted, which he did! SO ADORABLE!! I watched him as he went outside and tenderly peeled the skin off the mushroom and pondered what to do .. finally taking little nibbles and finishing the piece off. This was one of my taste experiment highlights of the Summer for me with my little guy, it was unplanned and unexpected and wonderful. With the valuable knowledge that by slowly offering my little boy opportunities to taste various foods, his taste will in time grow acustom to those flavours and he will learn to love them! It looks like the different Mushroom Taste Trials that I have done with my little guy are starting to pay off.
With this new revelation and also the knowledge that with a new day can come a change of mind I plan to offer him some raw chopped mushroom again soon .. but next time I will use a nice dipping sauce maybe ranch dressing .. he has never tried it before and most kids love ranch dressing don't they? I will put a little bowl with carrot spears + cucumber spears + mushroom slices + a vegetable dip. Making it a fun experience .. solidifying his ""love"" of mushrooms is now on my taste experiment agenda!
So without further ado here are a few more pics of the moment to share :
