Tasty Toddler Tuesday

This past week we experimented with brown rice and butternut squash. Sometimes I feel like I am on that show Hell's kitchen and Eliza is Gordan Ramsey. Some of my concoctions are not met with a smile. I have had gagging and the shivers. But I have also had some successes which makes me smile and say Yes Chef!

This past week I made E a meal with apple, chicken and brown rice. In a saucepan I cooked diced chicken and an apple. Then I added in some cooked brown rice and mashed it up a bit. Eliza ate it as a finger food and loved it! I will definitely be making it again.

I also tried butternut squash, applesauce and rice. I don't think it was the taste with this so much as the texture that E didn't love. She can be funny about texture.

The third rice dish I made was steamed eggplant and squash with brown rice, chopped chicken and a little melted cheddar. Also a success!

*Pastina with cheese and butternut squash!
*butternut squash and peach puree

*bananas with fresh pumpkin puree
* Avocado chunks

Also, I think E might be allergic to eggs. I mashed up a cooked egg yolk for her and gave it to her for breakfast. She turned up her nose at it but did manage a few bites. Later that day she pooped and had a bright red rash where the poo touched. It is the only new food she had that day so I am thinking possible food allergy?

Stay Tuned!
Next Tuesday I will be reviewing Tasty Baby Organic Baby Food!

Lillian loves butternut squash! I love fall foods! Chicken with the apples sounds great! I tried chicken with cherries once but it wasn't a winner (and if you're CDing, then cherries really stain!) It could be an egg allergy, but I thought that it was the whites that are usually the allergen? (I don't know- I just thought that) but if that's the only new food, then I'd think the same thing! Sounds like you're having a lot of fun cooking!
