The risotto looks good LT. Great tip on making stock in the slow cooker too. I never make my own stock as I don't like the smell or the scum so this would prob be good for me as you say I could just sieve it  :)

Yeah, works a treat.  There is still the smell but I think it smells like Christmas making stock.  Come to think of it at Christmas my slow cooker is going to be working overtime.  I'll probably make stock on the 23rd for the gravy, maybe red cabbage (to reheat later) on the 24th and then I'll reheat my Christmas Pudding in it on Christmas day, all without using a ring on the cooker!  Result!

Just jumping in as I wean DD off of her beloved purees :)  I make just over half of her purees, and use jars when I am being really lazy.

Wake - bottle

Breakfast - oatmeal and half jar of pears, Cheerios

Snack - Cheerios, Gerber puffs, yogurt drops  (she screamed for a snack!)

Snack - cheese, chicken, banana (DH and I were eating lunch and she was starving again!)

Bottle/nap

Lunch - homemade puree of yam/mixed veggies, half of an oat/fruit granola bar

Snack - more Cheerios (this kid must be growing!)

Dinner - scrambled egg with cheese, half jar of apple/plum puree

Bottle/bed

I have no idea what the heck was with her today - she was eating ALL DAY!  She is generally a picky eater who doesn't consume much - must be a GS!

WOW, this is a great thread. Can I ask how old your lo's are? My little man is 11 months and I've recently been wondering if his diet is a little bland. I'm sticking to the same foods and want to experiment a little...

My son is 19 months but he's been eating mild curries and stuff with flavour since around 9 months.  At 11 months I'd definitely be more adventurous!

Good to see you here BC. My boys are 2.5 and 8.5mo. I have been on this thread since DS1 was 10mo as he was eating very grown up food and I needed some ideas. We were also doing family by then including curry, chilli and lots of strong flavours.

Today:
B: wheatabix and apple sauce and chopped banana.
S: Spelt biscuit
L: Spinach, apples and swede. Tuna and ricotta filled pasta
D: Chicken fried rice, duck pancakes, sweet potato and carrot. Strawberries.

Hi BC, My son is 2 next week but as you can see from my profile we are on a fairly restricted diet plus he is very fussy! Why don't you post on the  board for some advice and ideas?

Hi Lemonthyme, Just making some of your savoury muffins for my little man for tomorrow. Really silly question, how should they be stored? Also if I freeze them, when I want to use them do I just defrost them at room temperature? Thanks ever so!
