The Taste Test

taste test

This is the sort of thing that goes on in our house.
Unconventional? I guess.
The kids and I had fun yesterday blindfolding each other and tasting different fruits and vegetables to see if we could guess what they were. Unfortunately for Matt, when he got home from work he was sucked into the taste testing vortex.
He was sat firmly on a chair and blindfolded..(its actually one of the kids neck warmers for skiing but it looks hysterical on Matt's head!)
They got him to taste cherries and raspberries and blueberries and strawberries. But the funniest was watching his face when the kids had him taste things that he doesn't like. This was his reaction to tasting a radish. It makes me just giggle looking at these pictures. We tried to get him to eat a tomato which is by far and away his least favorite thing to eat. But we couldn't even get it into his mouth. Just the smell of it made him clam up. At least we know his nose works pretty well.

  1. This is the FUNNIEST thing!! We did this with the kids testing red vs. white raspberries. They hated the idea of white raspberries. Anyway, it turns out that Natalie COULD indeed tell the difference but both kids conceded that they were ok. I'll have to try radishes next. And the neck warmer is a GREAT touch!! hahahhaa!!
