food critic

Every 5 year old is a food critic, I’m sure. Zoe is no exception. Add to her young and picky pallete her mother’s sugar-free vegan diet, and a few zingers are sure to come. My favorites:

“Too hot. No flavor.” (OK, this was actually about some eggs that Mark made)

“Tastes like dust.” At which point I looked at Mark expectantly. He gave me a faint regretful nod and looked back at his plate.

So, when this comic ran in the paper a few weeks ago, I laughed out loud. Were they sitting at our dinner table?! (The kid character is actually named Zoe too.)
