Last night, while we anxiously waited for our dinner to cook,
Elise and I had a little impromptu taste test.
It was so much fun, we did it twice,
and Elise was ready to do it again first thing this morning. ;)
I offered Elise three identical little glasses
of sugar water, lemon water, and salt water.
(I also filled a bottle with plain water to cleanse her palette between tastes.)
After Elise took a sip from a glass,
I would name the taste.
That was sweet. That was sour. That was salty.
Sweet was a big hit, with salty coming in a close second.
Sour left little to be desired...
which was surprising, considering Elise usually sucks down lemon wedges.
Coffee seemed like an ideal bitter taste,
but I decided it would be bonkers to let my toddler drink coffee after 6 pm!
I can't stop thinking of more "edible tests" for us try:
texture, color, temperature...
We may be doing this for awhile!
