Today we had chicken, rice, green beans and garlic bread for dinner. Green beans are a huge hit around here with both kids asking for seconds, every time.
Except for today. Teddy ate probably three beans. One of them was eaten raw while I was making dinner. He did end up eating some rice off my fork by the end of the meal and finished off the strawberries I had in the fridge.
Tillie? She ate two helpings of "Grandpa's beans" like normal. The remarkable part? She. Ate. Rice. I know, it was the crappy full of sodium packet of rice, but still. This is good for her; she's a pretty picky eater. Thankfully, the things she will eat are fruits and vegetables. Maybe chicken flavored rice will be a small step to eating actual chicken.
I'd like to thank Costco for giving out samples of rice and quinoa last month. Tillie took it even though I was sure she'd hand it over to me. She happy ate every last bite off that tiny spork proclaiming, "Mmm, yummy!" the entire time. I convinced her to try the rice today because it was like what she had there. I might just pick it up at Costco next time. I didn't think she'd actually eat it at home.
