It's what's for dinner.
Not beef. Though I'm not against it; I am a Texan after all. Though, any time I actually think about meat--I wouldn't eat it. Which is a sign, I know. but I do like it. So in my pretend hippy, organic buying, lara bar child eating, farmers markety ways... I made all of G's baby food. I loved it. I like cooking. However, once he started eating "solids" it seemed way harder to me. How can I get him to eat kale now? It's hard to chew. Then I fall into a super rut of mac n cheese (annie's duh), edamame, green peas, broccoli, chicken (hate), pbj, etc etc boring plain food that is often frozen and cooked up as fresh.
I found this website with this lady who is way more creative than me, reminded me I can cook, and she took pics of her kids meals. I was INSPI(red). Take that GAP. Though I think they already make that one. this post does in no way benefit the AIDS foundation... though I wish it did. Please feel free to donate.
G$ LOVES a dipping sauce. Which I never give him (ps. ketchup makes me vommy. So does mayo.) I give him yogurt which he uses as a dipping sauce. Anywho, so today I bought some raw flour tortillas (yum.) cooked it up, made a quesadilla with black beans, corn, cheese, guacamole (dipping sauce), cooked carrots (which he hates--he IS mine), and blueberries. He ate it alllllllllllllllllll. except the carrots which he kindly used as a spoon for the guac and then put back on his tray. He also kept saying "wiiiiiinnneeeee" because that's what I had for his dinner.
All of this to say, we now have ice so I can reintroduce my roman cokes into my life which makes me a better mom. Wait, no, this was about my cooking for the G-man.
Oops. Sorry Shaina, better luck next time.
