Sixteen years of vigilance pays off

Christina D | Aug 26, 2013 02:16 PM

My son started out as a very picky eater. He refused to eat fruits and veggies and wouldn't even look at something if it wasn't pancakes, chicken nuggets or pizza. When he was about 3 or 4, I had had enough. I started working very hard to expand his palate. Progress came at a snail's pace, but it came.

Today is his sixteenth birthday and he's completely excited about this evening's menu: duck breasts with raspberry sauce, baby potatoes roasted in duck fat and haricots verts with shallots.

And this from a kid who used to roll his green beans off the tray of his high chair.

I'm one happy mom tonight. Now, if I can just get him to cook. ;o)
