Although Aubrey's favorite food of all time is Shepherd's Pie she insists she doesn't like mashed potatoes. She gags just putting them in her mouth. The other day I was making Shepherd's Pie and she saw me making mashed potatoes and asked what they were for because "I don't like mashin' tatoes!" I looked at her like she had two heads and told her I was making Shephard's Pie. She said "So, the mashin' tatoes are for supper? Do I have to eat them?" I realized that she didn't realize that they were actually in the Shepherd's Pie so I told her yes.
When dinner time came around she asked where they were so I told her I threw them out because I knew she didn't like them. Ben asked them what they had for lunch and she told him "My favorite! Shepherd's Pie!" So I asked her what was in Shepherd's Pie and she said "Hamburger, corn and Shephard's Pie!" I guess we will keep the mashed potato secret a little longer so we don't ruin her favorite food!
