I actually like cooking. I am pretty good at it too..
I don't do it much because I like relaxing more and doing dishes less... a lot less.
I am trying to figure out this whole what-do-you-feed-a-child-that-is-16-months thing.
Schatzy wants to keep everything organic and unprocessed, which is totally fine, but not that easy for a working mom to manage sometimes (I actually don't see how this could be easy for any first time mom).
I have found that letting my son have a go at some booty is ok too...
But can I let him make a meal out of it?
I let him eat a variety of things, and am pleased that he seems to like his veggies. He adores these (which I will always be grateful for the recommendation from Jordana).
But how do I make a real meal? What are the right proportions?
What all do I need to do?
I mean, do I just make smaller versions of the food that I eat for dinner, because take out Mexican food from our favorite local places doesn't sound like it is best. Not with hot sauce anyways.
I worry that I feed him only snacks?
Though I try to make sure he gets a mix of protein, carbs and fats.
So I turned to the trusty internet to look at what people think children should eat and I found these suggestions!!!
Do any of you have time to make these things?
Sorry, I would make a lousy Japanese mommy, because while making a bento box may be a competitive housewife sport, I just lack the desire to do this sort of thing on a regular basis.
This almost makes me feel like I am failing as a mommy.
