The secret may be the grill
So I had another winning moment with my picky eater this weekend. We went out of town this weekend and as he continued to eat nothing but apples (is that a bad thing?), I worried about him, as usual, but then lo and behold, he surprised me on Saturday. We went to a big party and there was someone working the grill and making chicken and beef satay sticks-in other words, chicken breast and beef pieces skewered on wooden sticks and grilled, then served with a peanut dipping sauce. While my guy wouldn’t touch the sauce, he ate two whole chicken satay sticks. He walked right up and grabbed them off the plate and strutted around eating each like it was a lollipop or an ice-cream cone.
I don’t know if it was because he was a) hungry-he was, b) he saw another kid his age grab one or c) he really liked the whole grab it and eat it while he was walking around aspect to it.
Whatever the case, I will make these at home, and better than we had at the party. I can easily skewer a nice and juicy piece of chicken, give it a little EVOO and salt and pepper and throw it on the grill. Let’s see if lightening will strike twice!
