He is a fussy eater!

My dearest son, H is getting very fussy about his food. Previously he might still consider trying something new but now, he usually says "no", just by looking at something. He doesn't eat seafood and yet, he will eat salmon but then only if it is pan-fried or roasted, hence crispy. Being half Malaysian, he loves keropok and ikan bilis ( and probably belacan! ), all fishy!  Obviously he doesn't mind the smell.
He used to come for a family meal out but last Friday, on our wedding anniversary, he opted to stay at home and had baked beans for lunch. The three of us went out to Midsummer House. The three of us love our food, especially sea food.
Right now the only place that H will be truly happy to eat out at is Jamie's Italian. Even then, he will opt for a burger, without all the trimmings. I made this layout for Scrap365 to document this phase in his life. Hopefully he will learn to love more food. Last night he even enjoyed battered okra for dinner. Now, that is progress!

What a creative way to present your writing about his food likes/dislikes - very visually arresting! Sad to hear about the lonely meal of baked beans - teenagers, eh!

Ah, teenage boys! It's a beautiful page though - those striking shapes pulled me in for a closer look
