Netta's Niece

Pickles and hot dogs

Zoey's Aunt Netta is more intimately known by her family as the girl who will eat just about any combination of foods left in the fridge. At least that's how Netta used to be. Her palette has most certainly improved after having lived and worked in two of Canada's largest, most metropolitan cities. Still, I don't know anyone who paired such weird things together standing there in the half light of a gently propped open refrigerator door. There are times Zo reminds me of her gastrointestinally superior Aunt Netta, and it gives me heartburn just watching her.

Just the the other day it was hot dogs and pickles, not bad as far as combinations go, but not one I'd have settled into comfortably. Two days ago she wanted french toast and hot dogs, and just last week she was eager to tackle some rice and peanut butter toast. There are times I throw up a little watching her eat lunch.

Mostly Zed is a pretty bland fan of food....rice, plain noodles, toast, cereal, ham, crackers, etc...and at regular intervals she's mildly more adventurous...cold noodle, sushi, etc...but those are really just loftier versions of the previous things. She could care less about the dinner table most times, but on occasion she gets pretty punk rock and wants sushi and pancakes, or hot dogs and pickles. I'm blaming it entirely on her Aunt Netta.

Ya, you can blame it on me, yesterday we went to a burger joint and I had a Port braised onion kobe beef stilton cheese burger with spicy kosher dills and Garlic fries at Romer Burger Bar on 4th. YUM!
