what's in a name?

the last time i served beef stew to the little girl, she turned up her nose, pushed it away, and told me she didn't like it. and she wouldn't eat it. after a few month's time, i tried again tonight, only this time i called it beef wonderful. and, no kidding, she ate the whole bowl. maybe her tastes have changed. or maybe beef wonderful was just too wonderful not to love.

My mother uses that strategy! We had more dishes named "________ Delight" than you would believe! This cracked me up.

It looks pretty wonderful to me, what's not to love??

It sure looks wonderful. It makes me hungry just to see it. I would have eaten the whole bowl too.
