Poppin Peas like Candy

So my little Eliza is loving peas lately. Recently, I have been trying to give her more finger foods to eat. In the past she would usually gag whenever I gave her something with more texture than oatmeal, but lately she is really getting the swing of this eating biz! I bought some frozen organic peas and have been making them in small batches for her every few days. She loves them and pops them into her mouth rapid fire. I also cut up and steamed some carrots for her to eat. She is enjoying them as well. I am thinking of changing my Tasty Tuesday to recipes from my toddler feeding adventures.

One morning I couldn't figure out how to keep the banana bits from slipping between her fingers. Then I saw the box of Cheerios on the counter and decided to make her some Cereal Covered Banana Bits! It was a huge hit and she could finally get a hold of those slippery bananas! Did I forget to mention how fun it is to smash Cheerios with a rolling pin! woo hoo The things that get my motor revving these days.
YUMM-O

What? Do I have something on my face?

Finger foods are always fun. Have you tried pasta yet? Izzy loves macaroni noodles.
