Nat "ooooo cilantro!" (as she grabs a couple of tablespoons to put on her plate)
Me: "ummmmm you like cilantro now?"
Nat: "Yes, Aunt Cheri made me this sandwich thing with it on it cuz Uncle Jonathan took all the lettuce to work."
Me: "What kind of sandwich?" (and totally laughing about Jonathan taking all the lettuce!)
Nat: "It was on a tortilla with mayonaise and ham and cilantro"
Me: "You liked it?"
Nat: "Yeah - can I have it for lunch tomorrow?"
Me: "uhhhhh maybe" (wondering if I have all these strange ingredients in the fridge - and wondering when she had left the world of pb & j behind)
Fast forward to the next morning . . . I had totally forgotten about this mysterious "sandwich" when . . .
Nat: "Mom, can you make me that thing with the tortilla and mayo and ham?"
Me: "I can try . . what's all on it again?"
Nat: "Tortilla, mayo, ham and garlic"
Me: "Garlic?" (ackkkkk she likes garlic now too??)
Me: "How about if I call Aunt Cheri and ask her what goes on it. Then I can make it for you tomorrow." (and knowing that Natalie will nag me about it for the rest off my life until I find out what is on it)
I know it's not as good looking as a P-dub creation.
