It's a hit!

Tonight for dinner we tried something new and different. We had lettuce wraps with pulled pork, avocado and shredded cheese. As any mother can tell you it's always a gamble to introduce a new food, but I consider myself very lucky in the fact that all three of my children are willing to at least try new things. I don't know how I got to be so lucky, it definitely isn't karma from my childhood. I'm honest enough to admit that. And they definitely didn't inherit it from their father, the man who was afraid to go to Ikea!

The verdict? They loved it! Especially the avocado, or as Evie kept calling it "the odd-o-codo". They enjoyed the novelty of eating with their hands instead of silverware. (We just don't do that a lot around here.) They ate and ate and ate until the only thing leftover was half a head of lettuce! And if I had had more pork, avocado and cheese, they probably would have eaten until the lettuce was all gone...

Two "flumbs" up! 
That's the highest rating you can get in our house.

I thought it was cute to see how thoroughly Lila enjoyed her dinner by how much she was wearing at the end... and then I stood up and looked at my own shirt. Apparently I enjoyed it even more than the children.
