A short trip from “Eww! Is this new?” to “Ooh! My fave Three-Cheese Macaroni”

Sammie will correctly describe himself as someone who doesn’t like to try variations on his favorite foods. Me he will describe as constantly trying stuff out and it seems to work out just perfectly. All it takes is getting Sammie to try something once and maybe twice and if it strikes the right note the new dish or variation moves at lightning speed from “new and suspect” to his ‘favorite foods” list. It happens so fast he usually has no recollection of it ever having been new.

He protested strongly if I ever tried to stray too far from his Mom’s tried and tested Mac n’ Cheese recipe. The day I decided to go for it anyway, Mom called and just before he hung up he threw in a little complaint about me trying to make “some crazy three cheese stuff” and it turned out that my ma-in-law is a fan of the three cheese and was making some herself for dinner that night. So all bets were off and yes, it is now firmly under favorite foods.
