I give up!

 On bringing home takeout for my daughter.

My husband and I went to a  little Thai restaurant today for lunch. I first went to the Vegetarian menu to see what the choices were and if there was anything I could have altered to bring home for our loving kid. (sarcasm intended)

I settled on a soup Yom Kum or something like that. It has veggies in a broth with lots of herbs infused. I made sure there was no dairy or eggs and that the broth was vegan. I quizzed the waiter and also was told that if they do put fish sauce in this soup, he will ask for it without it but he didn’t believe they did as it would overtake the herb scent/aroma.

I was all excited to bring this home for her to eat before she had to go to work. I sent her a text. She writes back, “How do you know its vegan.” I wrote back that my husband as my witness, I quizzed the server. When I arrived home I called her to the kitchen. I told her what I said to the waiter, etc.

She didn’t tell me this, but she told my husband (while I sat in the other room) that she’s not going to eat it. She doesn’t trust it. OMG.

I just went and tested it. It tastes sooooo vegan that I wouldn’t be surprised if it started sprouting roots. The broth is very lovely tho with hints of several herbs including cilantro.

I give up. Seriously.

I am baking a sweet potato for her while she’s out w/my husband walking the dog.

She won’t need to do very much to make me lose it if she rejects the sweet potato…..
