A Conversation With Leif…

[…my cookbook fanatic four year old, while I’m in the shower.]

Leif and his cookbook

Mom, do you have chives?



No, I don’t think so.

Then we’ll have to buy some. Do you have black olives? Yep. In the mud room. We’ll have to open the can and put them on the cutting board. Do you have pizza sauce? WAIT. You have basghetti sauce. That’s like pizza sauce, right? We have tomatoes, right? Do you have sliced mozzarella cheese?

No, I don’t.

We’ll have to buy some. You have sausages, right? We’ll have to put them in the refrigerator to cool, because they aren’t ice cream.

[The sausage is in the freezer and has to thaw in the fridge, but ice cream never goes in the fridge…]

Do you have one clove garlic?

No, but I have minced garlic.

What color is it?


Okay. Do you have a French bread stick?


We’ll have to get one. And sliced mozzarella cheese. And pesto.

…… Mom, do you like Triple-Decker Dagwoods?
