So I have to start this post out by saying this, for as long as I’ve been with Jason (10 years) he has always said he can’t be fooled when it comes to food. He thinks he has the best sense of smell and taste and he can tell when I change something, add something or forget something. He says he knows if he’ll like something just from the smell of it…and he smells everything!! He’s gotten a lot better about not being SO picky, I’ve even gotten him to eat zucchini (Joy can’t even believe that.) So this leads to my story about how I tried to fool him once again.
So I’m getting super ready and I pull out the pasta, the sauce, and all the pots. First of all Jason has to have Ragu traditional spaghetti sauce. I notice I bought him organic!! So I start contemplating on what to do. Do I just make something else? Do I not tell him and go ahead and make it and see if he really can always tell if it’s different? So I though what the heck, I’ll give it a shot. If there’s ever a chance where I might prove Jason wrong…I TAKE IT!!! I hurry up and pour the sauce into the pot and take the label off the jar, rinse the jar and take it out to the recycling can OUTSIDE!! I wasn’t leaving any evidence because with my luck he would see it and my sneaky plan would be ruined. I finish everything up and set the table and all that jazz and call everyone for dinner. I kept a straight face the whole time, which is hard for me! He makes his plate, 2 bites in he says, ” WHAT IS THIS???” Can you believe that?? I thought I’d get him. I say, ” well it’s Ragu, what’s wrong with it?” I kept it up for about thirty seconds but ended up telling him it was organic. Oh and Joy you’ll like this, he says, “I’ve been eating this for 30 years!!” Oh I died laughing!!
So I guess the moral of this story is you can’t bullshit a bullshitter!!
Is anyone else like this? I probably couldn’t tell you the difference in a lot of things. I did not taste a difference in the sauce. Have you ever tried tricking your kids or spouse into maybe eating something different for health reasons or simply by accident like I did?
