My mom was always ahead of the cuisine trends, so about 12 years ago, she made salmon with mango-cilantro chutney for dinner. Ordinarily, her food is fantastic, but my dad and I could barely eat it. We just kind of gave each other these looks like 'My God, what do we do? Do we tell her?' My mom couldn't scarf it down fast enough. Anyhoo, truth came out, my mom was shocked, and we haven't spoken since. True, except for the very last part.
