"Yeah, man - you just gotta try it!"
I had the best talk with my nephew Nate last night. After discussing baseball, dogs and his upcoming move back to Texas, we got around to the subject of dinner. "What did you have tonight?" I asked. "Mashed potatoes," he answered. "With cheese and bacon bits!" I allowed as how this sounded very yummy, and he replied with a five-year-old boy rave review: "Yeah, man - you just gotta try it!"
How cute is that? It made me remember my favorite dinner when I was five: macaroni and cheese - from the box. Nothing could compare. So, what was your dream meal when you were little? What kept you hanging around the kitchen asking "Is it ready yet?" every three minutes until dinnertime? Was there a school cafeteria dish that you would count down the days to each week? Or maybe something from the ice cream man? (Remember him? I couldn't get enough Chocolate Eclair bars...) Tell us all about it!
p.s. Nate's sister Abby is also a trip...but she'd still rather be playing than stuck at the dinner table.
