With Mom gone, I tried my hand at making Angel’s first gourmet meal. I boiled a small potato I had cut in half, then added three asparagus tips and a pearl onion. No seasoning, I figured the onion would do the flavoring. I mashed the potatoes and cut the asparagus into small bits. I mixed in some mashed chicken sticks (sausages for babies courtesy of Gerber) using the water I used to boil the veggies in as a soup base. I then put 1/3 cup of freshly cooked rice in with around 1/2 cup of chicken stock (thinned and skimmed of visible fat) in our Magic Bullet and pulsed the mixture 5 times. I mixed this all together and came up with two servings actually.
As Mom had done before, I fed him this meal along with a full tub of Stage 2 Gerber dessert. Today it was half a tub of Bananas because I ran out. (Went to the grocery later during the day to get more!)
Angel has quite a healthy appetite and he is really not difficult to feed. I am still keeping my fingers crossed I won’t have to put him in daycare next week but that might prove difficult to pull off. Let’s see.. let’s see..
