A Toddler’s Mezze Lunch


Mezze- A collection of small dishes served to accompany alcoholic drinks as a course or as appetizers before the main dish in Greece, Turkey, Azerbaijan, the Near East and the Balkans. In Levantine, Caucasian and Balkan cuisines mezze is served at the beginning of all large-scale meals.

Subtract the alcoholic drinks and large-scale meal and you have the eating patterns of a toddler. Reminds me of this song:

Replace the word “shots” with “snacks” and  change any name of liquor to a cracker, bread, cookie, or fruit, and it’s our theme song all day everyday.

Cereal bars, pouches, blackberries, blueberries, tortilla, crackers, avocado, pasta…
