Tasty Hamburger

Initially I had planned for a posting on STREET FOOD. Yes, with busy looking street peddlars, happy smiling children on the sidewalk, a grand array of street food, tantalising aromas and smells in the air that makes up the the very heart, soul and lure of the South East Asia.

I shall reserve that for another time, however. With a subject like that, i could use more time to gather more pictures to work on it. The pictures that i have and write up is hardly going to make it into a decent read at all should i release it now.

Following my last post on picky eaters, it gave me an idea to extend it a little to finger foods. Variety is the word. Ideas. Interchange. Small unintimidating looking bites.

If it doesn't work, try presenting the food by distracting them with their favorite movies on. Or try serving it outdoors. Anywhere for a change and not solely restricted to the rigid rule of the accustomed dining space.

And then i asked my fussy eater what he would like to have and both the boys (including the easy eater) unaimously voted for Mc Donalds. (stucked expression..)

So, even finger food post will have to wait. We'll do one on tasty hamburgers and a dinner so good they will hopefully vote for ahem, Mommy instead of my colorful happy rival sometimes, huh?
