We attended a wedding of a cousin and brought the boys a few weeks ago and dinner was done Chinese style — a lauriat. This means that there were several courses (10 or 11!) from appetizers (cold cuts) all the way to dessert.
To make sure P eats (he can be picky), I checked out the menu they left on the table to know what was going to be served. Then I told him what to expect for dinner.
So before every course came out, I would tell him what the waiters would bring. He was really so surprised and said, “Mom, you ordered EVERYTHING on the menu???”
