The weather has been the pits today. Rain, rain, rain. No good for external adventures. This is the kind of day where I wish I could curl up with a book or my knitting, if only I had my own time. Instead, Frances and I did some playing and looking at books together and I worked on some food for her.
I had borrowed some baby cookbooks from the library the other day for inspiration. I like to spice things up and keep it fresh, which I am hoping will in turn keep Frances interested in food. I think it would be terribly boring to eat the same food day after day. When I cook her food I always think, would I eat this? If I answer yes to my question then I think it will be pretty good and she should enjoy it. I like to make a big batch of something and freeze it in meal portions. Today I decided that we needed some lentils, so I made a green batch with string beans and peas and a red batch with carrots and sweet potato. To the green I added basil and garlic powder and to the red I added basil and mild curry powder. I preferred the red one, but we shall see what Frances thinks!
Here’s a funny picture of Frances and Nori. Nori didn’t stick around for to long after this was taken!
