Eating with the Diva is always an experience. Pasta or turkey sandwiches (dry) with cheddar cheese are usually safe bets, but that is what I used to think about lots of foods that she liked. This morning it was a plain bagel. How do you go wrong with a plain bagel with cream cheese?
The Diva likes her bagels. Until a few weeks ago, she only liked them cold. They have to be fresh, can not be too brown, and must not have cream cheese in the hole. A few weeks ago she decided that she liked them "lightly" toasted. Lightly toasted means, very little to no browning.
She isn't picky at all, I know!
Back to this morning. She ordered a bagel lightly toasted. It came out. She asked me to spread on the cream cheese as the bagel was quite hot. And then... she did not want to eat it.
The bagel was not browned on the inside.
It looked like a normal, barely light brown on the outside, plain bagel.
I finally got her to taste it. Apparently it "tasted" different.
I have no idea what was wrong with this bagel, but I did get her to eat half of it before she handed it to me. perhaps it wasn't fresh enough? Maybe it was her stuffed nose?
The things she did to eat the half of the bagel...
First she tried to eat it and hold her nose at the same time so that she would not taste it.
That didn't work.
Then she tried taking a drink of her chocolate milk after and during the bagel chewing process.
This worked but only for half the bagel.
The last time she ordered something and decided she wasn't going to eat it was with the turkey and cheese sandwich at Subway. We have not been back since. I am hoping that the bagel doesn't go the way of the turkey and cheese. We are running out of food options.
