Just ask M!


If some how you weren't aware, our daughter is the inspiration for The Puzzled Palate. If you are a regular reader, I am sure that you have noticed that "M" is often featured as our modelour sous chef or our taste tester!

Today, I thought that it would be fun to let our readers "Ask M!" Feel free to post your comments in the comment form below and I will sort through them and have her answer them for you in an upcoming blog post.

We have already asked her if she would be interested in doing an "interview" and she was very excited. I also thought that it would be an interesting way to show you all how far she has come with her communication!


Requirements for questions and participation:

1. Remember that she is only 5 and ask age appropriate questions.  For example:

What is your favorite_____? 

Questions about her gluten-free diet. 
*Questions regarding her Aspergers or HFA diagnosis are welcome and maybe used in a future post- but they will not be presented to M for answering.

2. The "mommy filter" will be in place. 
I will sort through the questions ahead of time

3. Do not ask for personal information. Please don't be a creeper... 

4. Questions must be submitted by Tuesday August 12th, 2014 at 11:59 PM.



Now that is taken care of....

Just ask M!
